I don't see Gionta and Cammy as cap problems. Even Kaberles contract isn't that bothersome
Looking at CapGeek the Islanders have a lot of cash coming off the books next year with Rolston's salary coming off. Gomez at $4 million real cost, and $7 million cap hit is attractive to them, Gomez would address a centre need too. Plus, it is New York and Gomez would probably welcome a move back to an area he is very familiar with.

That is the only other option other than a buyout, as most teams will be able to hit the cap floor.
