At some point, I think the team has to alter their thinking and have a 'best player', someone who without question is among the best at their position. In my view,the team has a lot of very good players, with many more on the way. As a team, they probably lack one guy who stands alone, has a huge effect on other players or opposition gameplans. When that time comes, the whole cap and roster has to be structured to fit him in. I just don't think Gomez warrants radically changing the team, and I believe fitting him in would cause that.

Sure he's a better point producer than our current C's, but I don't see him as the 'guy'. I also believe that LL can sit back and demand Higgins or his equal in a deal. 28 other GM's will at least think about it.
