Gomez or the Rangers?

With Scott Gomez and the Montreal Canadiens headed to the Eastern Conference Finals and the Rangers on the golf course it got me to thinking about Gomez' time with the Blueshirts.

Before he signed with the Blueshirts he helped the Devils qualify for the playoffs every year and won two Stanley Cups. During his two years on Broadway he underperformed and couldn't help the Blueshirts get out of the second round.

Now that he was shipped to Montreal it looks like Gomez has rediscovered that winning formula. And Brian Gionta.

So who's to blame? The Rangers for not surrounding him with snipers he could distribute the puck to or Gomez for not playing up to his normal level of play?

Poll is to the right?

I think its both... Gomez couldnt elevate the play of his linemates, but the organization also didnt give him much to work with.
