Before getting rid of Gomez I'd like to see him get about 10 games in with decent linemates, I still think he can be a solid contributor and he costs nothing. Easy to say sending him down will open up 7 mil of cap room, but who do you use it on and what does that player cost to acquire?
I don't think he should stay up indefinitely, but while Gomez/White are still out, I think he has a place in the lineup...

Pacioretty-Plekanec-Gionta
Cammalleri-Desharnais-Cole
Kostitsyn-Eller-Leblanc
Darche-Nokelainen-Moen

Palushaj showed less in his 15+ games than Leblanc did in 3...
