I don't want to trade one overpaid forward for another. Throw in the fact that Gomez's contract is longer, and there's no chance I want him. If we manage to trade Rolston without taking much cap hit in return, we'd better re-invest his cap hit into the defence.

Lou would have to hold the cap space available until Montreal decided to waive and recall Gomez.

That's $3.7 million of cap space missing the start of camp.
Very good point, it's just not feasible that we could pick him up off waivers. Lou probably won't have the team that far under the cap that we could just pick him up at our leisure. It would require making room via trades at the start of the season, which we recently found out is very difficult.
