Gomez is very likely to rebound in production this upcoming season. Then he's going to be a solid 2nd centerman owed 5 million a year for two years, which will be what the market price would be for a 2nd line centerman in a 65+ Million cap world. Next year there should be a market for Gomez as a trade.

This is advantagous as 2012 is when they'd really want the cap relief to give raises to RFA's.
