Everyone has their wish now, no Gomez. Let's see how this team handles the loss.
Exactly.

While he earns the criticism he receives, mostly due to his salary, it's highly underrated how he gains the offensive zone so easily. How many times have we seen him take the puck from the defensive zone to the offensive zone during his time with the Habs?
