Unless last year was a sign of things to come, Gomez is a top 30 (or so) centre in the league. He had a horrible season, the worst of his career, but let's not get carried away and say that he's not a top 6 forward.
If Gomez plays at his usual level, and there is no reason just yet to believe that he won't, he's easily an excellent, though overpaid, second line centre on a good team.
Pacioretty isn't proven, but if he plays like he did last year then he's a very good second line left winger.
The real issue with our forwards is that we don't have a game breaker, but we have 6 or 7 forwards who can play in the top 6 on a good team. Maybe more if some break out, maybe less if some disappoint.
