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.
Cammy is a game breaker when it counts. We already have one. Subban can also be counted on for that. Gionta too on a smaller scale.
