Of course, if you already convinced yourself that it is absolutely the only option still available
...or the other option is that Gomez returns to form next season, and while still overpaid, brings much more to the table than he did this season (60-70 points, good defensive play, leadership...) making the cap hit more bearable?

I'm thinking the Habs brass are banking on this (unless they can move him), and if he puts up another bad season like he did, more drastic action might be taken. He's still highly respected on the team (see Price's comments on him being a great player and leader), even if he didn't produce as much this season.
