Removing Gomez would also give them 15 million in cap space with only one hole (the top-6 center position vacated by Gomez, obviously). And almost no one on the UFA market to throw all that money at.

And 2011-2012 with Plekanec-Eller-DD-whoever as the centerline isn't happening, period. That would be a giant misstep by Gauthier.

If they DO move Gomez, and I remain skeptical, but if they do, it will not be their only move.

And why would they even tell Gomez they are doing this, anyway?
