Oyz and others are right. As much as I would love to dump Gomez. We don't have anyone in our own system who can replace him. Our team would suffer if we left it alone, but I think it's a sacrifice I would be willing to make anyways.

We're a cap spending team and all indications are we will be for the foreseeable future. I do think we could replace him rather easily with the money we would save, how and where, I'm not really sure, but I have a hard time believing a 38 point center with -15, soft as butter would be tremendously difficult to replace with over 10million in cap space. I would even be happy with Arnott or someone as a 1 year stop gap and reevaluate next UFA season when the crop is much better, and load up somewhere else with the savings. I think if you have an offer to rid yourself of his cap hit you would be foolish not to act.
