Previous games played has nothing to do with conditioning (otherwise players like Mike Richards wouldn't be so out of shape right now and Thornton would never have to practice in the off-season), and the ECHL isn't exactly a great conditioning assignment either. Todd McLellan and Gomez himself noted a number of times how his conditioning is currently not on par and it'll take a while to acclimate himself to the NHL and get back up to game speed.
And before you start talking about Gomez's great work ethic or whatever, this nothing to do with work ethic. Montreal told him after the lock-out ended to stay at home and not show up to training camp. He expected not to play at all this season, missed training camp, and he hasn't played in an NHL game in a while, it isn't out of the question to think his conditioning isn't up to standard.

Gomez can pull off a nice pass but then would whiff on the puck and overskate non-stop. Hopefully it's just the rust.

What kind of expectations do you have from a 700K player? He is playing on the 3rd and 4th line and has already added energy to them and produced some good chances.

I can understand Montreal being pissed at his performance. They paid him 10 times more money than we are.
