Gomez won't be a distraction. He'll probably play on the fourth line center and Therrien will move him to the top six if DD or Plekanec have an injury or suspension. He'll be treated as depth.
Yeah but his buddies can create a rift if he is barely playing or in the press box for some young guy or Armstrong/White etc.

I see him as a poor fit for the 4th line, IMHO he needs to play top 6 and move Eller to wing. Maybe Eller-Plekanec-Gionta Bourque-Gomez-Armstrong/Palushaj(a true "bounce back" line!). Then use Prust-White/Noke-Moen
