I believe you could have asked this question in the Gomez thread; though I'm not a mod so it's their discretion to merge.

Yes, it does sound ridiculous. Reason why Gomez isn't scoring is because;

1. slight case of bad luck
2. he played very poorly last year and at the start of this season
3. he is regressing as he is getting older, so naturally will score less.

I have found in his last stretch of gamez he has played moderately better than he did in the past. It's only a matter of time until he scores a few.

I think we need to shelve the conspiracy theories that he's clinically depressed. He's able to skate still, able to go in the corners, able to get dressed for a game.

Once he'll score a goal a piano will be lifted off his back and miraculously his depression will be cured.

To suggest he is mentally ill because he hasn't scored a goal is a slap in the face for the millions that actually do suffer. There's a difference between being ''down'' and in a ''funk'' vs ''mentally depressed''.

Let's not start using that word so loosely.

That be a bet I'd willing to take.

For league minimum I'd keep him.
