I suppose you were posting the same on the Chicago board 2 days ago?

I think the odds of Gomez moving right now are less than 50%, but I'm glad PG is seeing what's out there.

I think next year is a better fit...why?

1-there would probably be better options as #2 center, including maybe Eller if he has a year like Pacioretty did last year.

2-after this year his salary drops dramatically and his cap stays the same, that makes him very attractive because of the rising floor

3-odds are the he rebounds, look at his career record, he's only 31 and it's not a stretch that he bounces back to around 60 points...if taht happens his negative value might turn into positive.

4-The cap room will be needed more next summer with lots of our kids needing raises.
