So no matter how you slice it, those moves were dumb and locked us into a bad core of forwards. Your argument that we wouldn't have had those guys without Gomez is just one more reason to have not gone after Gomez in the first place. Cammy is the only guy who is close to worth the money and he's not going to win with the core that we have.
Ok and what moves would of been better then?
I mean you're pretty quick to criticize but tell me, what were the better options available at the time?

Take the hit and have a full rebuilding year, hope to get a shot at a top 3 pick, what?

Not sure if you're new but Montreal fans and full rebuilding plans don't mesh well heh and no GM is going to risk their job on such.
