40 even-strength points is close to his career average. If Pacioretty can bail him out this year he has a chance of achieving that number... and that just might happen.

Achieving that total might be the result of riding on some else's coat tails rather than any improvement in his level of play. What was just as worrisome as the points total with Gomez was the lack of defensive responsibility. We need the 40 even strength point and we need a big turnaround in the plus/minus when he is on the ice.
