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.
Since when is a pure playmaking center who barely ever scores goals not relying on others to produce though? We knew what we were getting with Gomer, it isn't that people think he'll bounce back that I find crazy. What I find crazy is the people who have some ridiculous expectation of Gomer being Joe Thornton.
