Couple of things:

1) The issue with Gomez has never been flashes of good play it's been consistency.

2) I fail to see how Gomez even at his best makes for a good third line center.

3) I can't see Gomez being a Torts guy blocking shots, playing hard consistently, etc. You may believe he would play hard, but he's never shown a willingness to do that at any point in his career.
