Maybe they have principles and don't want to do that. Who knows...
They are multimillionaires, but 8M is still a lot of money. I guess we'll see what happens.
But again, why can teams like New-York, Chicago and even Edmonton can do it and we can't. It's not like we are a poor team or something.
And actually next season, he's making 7.5M$ so you see, 500 000$ saved just like that!
So between paying a player 7.5M$ to play in the AHL and knowing you could use 7.3M$ to improve your team considerably OR spending 7.5M$ for a player worth 3M$.. you still lose 4.5M$ AND you don't know what's he's gonna give you so its still a gamble.
So yeah, I guess we'll see but if the Molson really want this team to succeed, getting rid of Gomez would be a great start.
