He did have positive puck possession last year, but it was in useless sheltered minutes, and even then he couldn't produce with it.

It's possible under a better coach and a new system in San Jose that a motivated and free of pressure Gomez can be productive, but he's nothing more than a marginal role player at this point.
He had the most points among all Habs in the second half of that season. He was almost PPG in that second half. Without Gomez, no playoffs that year. He was our best player besides Markov in that half season leading to the 2010 playoffs.
