But overall was the least effective of all the top 6 forwards in outchancing the opposing team.
He was probably the weakest overall at outchancing Kostisyn usually had the benefit of playing with the best and 2nd or 3rd best forward while Gomez was usually counted on to be a leader on his line so Gomez may have been better than him. By outchancing against top level guys he was still better than anyone in the bottom six except the curious case of Desharnias who might have been playing over his head over a short period of time.

I compared this to last season Gomez was the chance% leader at even strength for centers and behind only Cammaleri and Gionta for forwards. Looks like Gomez had a somewhat down season in play and a huge down season in luck.
