He was 60th. If he rebounds to 50-55 points, he will be in the range for top 5 second line centres. If he only gets up to 45 points, that is still a middle of the road 2nd line centre.
You have to keep in mind, 2nd line centres are guys like Koivu with 45 points, Tim Connolly with 42 points, David Legwand with 41 points, Eric Belanger, Nik Antropov.
2nd liners are often over rated and people don't realize how inconsistent 2nd liners actually are in the NHL.
They dont understand the concept of average, and the fact that there is 30 teams in the league. Thats a lot of players...
Gomez is overpaid, but he is still a top-6 player, scoring-wise. And i'm not drunk.
