Well i'm pretty sure Gainey is not a dumb guy and i'm pretty sure the reason he traded for Gomez was because the opportunity to acquire a good player for "cheap" came to him, so he took it. Considering it was hard to get players to come in Montreal he had no choice but to sacrifice one good prospect instead of giving Price,Marko or Subban.

I'm pretty sure Gainey knew what he was doing at that time.

Honestly Gainey made one really bad trade in his life with us and that was giving Ribeiro away for free to Dallas. Besides that i really dont have a problem with Gomez trade.
