I still haven't read anybody give strong arguments as to how Gomez's play was so different from the previous year.
Gomez in 09-10 compared to 10-11 wasn't any different. Same thing with Plekanec, people were always saying he didn't look too differently, that it certainly wasn't from a lack of trying that his production went down. Well, Gomez never was the hard working corner or drive the net guy over here in Mtl.
The biggest difference I saw from Gomez is that the conversion rate of his line diminished. That wasn't due to lack of opportunity or because he didn't create anything. Sometimes it simply isn't your night, or your week, or your month, or your year.
When you look at the stats Olivier brings up, it pretty much points to that. You can either choose to believe that, or think they're flawed and go with the ''Gomez was lazy, didn't drive, etc..'' excuses even though he was pretty much the same player two years ago.
