You talk about putting Gomez in the AHL like it's a no brainer but to do that without trading for/signing another top 6 center it's very risky to go in with Desharnais or Eller as #2 center.
I said that we should have gone after Hamrlik and Wisniewki before the UFA market opened. Unfortunately they did not deal with the assets they had on hand.

Plekanec > Gomez
White > Gomez
Leblanc > Gomez
Engvist > Gomez
Geoffrion > Gomez

They all cost less and arguably brings the same production. Gomez is not a top 6 centerman. We replaced Saku Koivu for another top 6 centerman, where did it led us? Have you not learnt the mistake already? Anyhow Koivu > Gomez.

By the way, it wouldn't even have been an issue, Markov has yet to play ONE single game this season.... so you would of been able to keep Gomez in the line up.
