We had more than a center problem. Our core was collapsing, nobody would lead our coming group of prospects.
Gomez gave us Gionta. Gionta gave us Cam and Gill. With these 4, we had a reliable core who could show our youngsters what it is to be a professional who behaves like a pro, not like a diva.
And the point is, it worked so far. I don't see any of our current prospects not acting professional, not giving it all they got.
Gomez might be a load, but he's a stepping stone that allowed us to build a brighter future. He's costly, but he's not crippling the way Kovalchuk is to the Devils.
