Right now, we still need Gomez because Eller and Desharnais are still not reliable enough to take the difficult defensive faceoffs on a consistent basis.
Nokelainen may be a decent player, but im not really comfortable with the 4th line there.
Eller is not that far from being ready defensively, though, and it seems that saying that Gomez will no longer be part of the team next season is a reasonably safe bet. Not absolutely sure of that, but you can bet.
That was the plan anyway, i think.
