As Objectively as I can possibly be:
Gomez has underwhelmed even with lowered expectations. If he was brought in to add to our bottom 6, and improve the 2nd PP unit, he has not been able to do any of that. To be fair, the Sharks as a whole have been playing terribly after their initial win streak and Gomez has often been saddled with pretty crappy line mates or been scratched. Last game we finally got to see him play with some better line mates on the 2nd line (at least for a bit of the game) but even then he was not able to contribute anything noticeable. Perhaps with Clowe out for the next game he gets another shot and can make something happen.
His time on the 2nd PP unit has also amounted to nothing, and that unit as a whole has been a black hole of suck with or without him. Other than the Sharks top line, Couture, and Boyle nobody on the team has contributed much in the way of offense, and while nobody could blame Gomez for all of that, he certainly hasn't been part of the solution.
Hopefully he can contribute more over the rest of the season, but so far he has been mostly invisible when he has played.
