That is the only other option other than a buyout, as most teams will be able to hit the cap floor.
I think that might work but your facts are wrong...Gomez has a 7.35 mil cap hit and his salary will be 5.5 mil next year, 4.5 mil in 13-14.

If no NHL team wants him, I'm sure they can find a KHL team to take him off our hands.
