Fearless prediction: Gomez will not play in the 4th line under Therrien's orders.
He likes the 4th line to play like a classic 4th line...and I can't see how Gomez could become that kind of player.
So Gomez will either get a last shot somewhere in the other 3 lines of the Habs or on the first line....of a team in the AHL not called the Hamilton Bulldogs.
I think the d pairings look good.
That right there could be our starting line up (switching Gomez for Nokelainen in the 4th line).... unless Therrien breaks up DD's line.....or if we acquire another scoring winger.
