However, what happens when you factor in cap hit and defensive acumen?

Also, there are a lot of excuses for Gomez flying around this forum. The same excuses that lead one to say "Gomez will have 60 points next year" should also lead one to say "Plekanec will have 30 goals and 80 points next year". Cammalleri was injured. Markov was injured. Erik Cole is really good. All the people assuming Gomez will bounce back have to assume Gomez will thus draw tougher opposition.
