Scott Gomez was our #1 center last year if you use even strength and PP ice time as the yardstick. Pleks was our #2 center using the same criteria. The only reason Pleks had more total ice time was because he had 217 minutes of short handed ice time.

I don't know if that is the fault of Gomez or Martin, but when you see a guy with 7 goals and 31 assists getting the majority of the even strength and PP ice time, you have to think there is room for improvement.

Just for the record, Gomez had more than two and a half times the ice time that Desharnais had and more than one and a half time the ice time that Eller had when you count even strength and PP ice time.

But these guys aren't ready and surely couldn't be counted on to fill Gomez's skates
