With Prust the third line can play against good opposition. With Gomez it needs to be sheltered. Sheltering the third line means more responsabilities again for poor Plekanec who should be allowed to focus on offense once in a while.

Yes, I forgot how Gomez is completely useless defensively. I remember how much Martin had to shelter him on the way to the conference finals. He didn't get any playing time on his run to the cup either, because he needed to be sheltered...

Gomez is overpaid, and under performing, even for a 4 mill player, but he is not COMPLETELY useless like people here like to make him out to be.
