When you have Gomez in your top six, you can't declare that we have a legit group of top 6 players. Well, you can declare it but not with a straight face.
Fair enough to say this. I also think he'll add some offense to the PP, if Markov can stay healthy and play the point when Gomez is out there.
But then again, it falls back into your statement of a player carrying him.
Alone, Gomez can't do it. When he has capable linemates to pass to, he'll see more stats on the sheet in his name. However, that doesn't take away all his cred. I doubt even Crosby, a guy that makes teammates appear much better than they really are, could put up as much offensive with Darche and Moen on his wing, than he could with Pacioretty and Gionta.
Nobody gives a **** about your fantasy hockey team!
