Gomez quite handily IMO. Phil Kessel scored 82 points last year and would be on pace for about 65 or so this season if it wasn't shortened. He is still young with room to grow and mature as a player. Sure losing out on Seguin, Hamilton and Knight is bad, but the key is Montreal didn't get a young, PPG winger back in their trade.

They traded a heart and soul leader on the team who had just come off a down, injury filled season, but one who had posted 3 straight 20+ goal seasons. Thrown in McDonagh who has turned out to be a top 4 guy with upside and you have the makings of a disaster. Which is exactly how it turned out when Gomez struggled.
