Well, if they would end-up keeping Gio, Cammy and Spacek till the end of their contracts, it might just show Gomez was just a way of waiting for the trade they wanted in the first place. And Gomez wasn't a UFA... Among all the new guys, he's the most logical to theoriticaly go because he wasn't signed to a contract to join the team, although he does have a NTC.

In fact, isn't that what Gainey is most frowned upon for, keeping his UFAs till the very end of their contracts? UFAs might consider what happened to Gomez as a rare occurence by the Habs.

Anyway, I don't think Gainey would trade Gomez so quick.... unless... someone called him. Someone with financial problems with a worst contract to get rid of.
