Is it because Gomez is a center, and the Sharks need a winger to play in the top 6?
Well, Boyle, Vlasic, Murray, and Stuart are defensemen, so I'm not sure I see your point...
He has had opportunities in the top-6. He spent several games with Marleau and Pavelski, which didn't amount to much since Gomez has absolutely no defensive game to speak of and Marleau and Pavelski take on the toughs.
He's doing well on the third line providing secondary scoring, and that's where he should stay.
