He played very well with Max Pacioretty and Brian Gionta last season, and if that line gets back together this coming season and performs well, I see a potential 60-70 point season for Gomez. Maybe not Lecavalier caliber, but very good season nonetheless. People forget how skilled Gomez is at passing: I think this season will tell us if he has really deteriorated or simply had an off-season. He's a great player either way and I for one am happy we have a great mentor such as him on the team.
When an NHL player gets paid 7 million per and your name is not Chara, people get upset.

Anyway you slice it, Gomez had top 2 minutes at 5v5 and on the PP. 7 goals and 38 points with that kind of ice time is unacceptable at 4 million never mind 7 million.
