I'm worse as far as the pro-Gomez camp... I think he never learned how to work. He loves hockey, no doubt in my mind there. I think he just didn't realize how much he himself was responsible for - it came that easy. Hockey bites back and Gomez is totally unprepared for that. Marty was always totally prepared despite it being so easy.
also when I think about it, Gomez is sort of an observer of hockey more than a student or a player of hockey -- even as he plays. He's too busy seeing everything to get that he has to take part. SOmetimes I think he doesn't see fully what he's looking at with himself in the picture. His whole perception is just a bit off and that's OK. It's just it gets him into non-productive stretches and he has no control over his direction. He leaves it all up to hockey to present him with chances ... it's insane logic, but I think that's what the problem is for him. He's just getting to old to change his vision now -- or to be able to do anything about it.
I gotta shut up!
