Gomez also went a full 12 months without scoring a goal. And he was playing Brian Gionta and (I think) Tomas Plekanec or Rene Bourque (and Cammalleri before that)! Those are not bad players. But Gomez couldn't get anything going with them. I'm sorry but I have absolutely zero hope that he would come here and suddenly find whatever it was he lost.
I think I speak for nobody when I say it's pretty clear that Gomez is an elite, first line center who's capable of 70pts at the age of 33

But seriously, we gave Begin a tryout and he hasn't played hockey since Gomez last scored a goal.
