If Talbot is on the 4th line, then who is replacing him on the 3rd line? I don't see how the bottom 6 isn't better with Gomez in it rather than Rinaldo.

Some guys you bring in have a positive effect on team chemistry. Most are a wash. He'd almost definitely be a negative.

I'd put him in the category of "avoid at ALL COSTS".
Basis?

There is always a need to get better. Last time I checked, the Flyers don't have a roster like the '84 Oilers. If Gomez is better than any of the Flyers 12 forwards, they should get better by signing him.
