Gomez Has To Be Better

from Larry Brooks of the NY Post,

The Rangers need Gomez to be much better. There have been far too many haphazard passes to nowhere, far too many turnovers.

Gomez is holding on to the puck way too long. His instincts appear to have become hazy.

Not everybody is going to play the same way as Patrik Elias and Brian Gionta, Gomez’s linemates in New Jersey with whom he had brilliant chemistry, but it is on the centerman to make it work with Naslund and Zherdev.

Gomez turns 29 today. He’s the team’s seventh-eldest.

It’s a long way from his tenure as a Devil during which he had people like Claude Lemieux, Scott Stevens, Randy McKay and Ken Daneyko to learn from and lean on.

Now, ready or not, Gomez is at the head of the class.
