For argument's sake, let's assume that Gomez is demoted and that the money is used to get Parise. This change alone could justify yet another ticket price increase. It would also probably help generate revenue from jersey sales. Finally, Parise instead of Gomez would greatly increase the odds of making the playoffs, which are incredibly profitable for the owners of the team.

There is no way that Molson views burying Gomez as a net $10M loss.
granted.

i read somewhere that gauthier had made an offer to brad richards for 8 million, that means management would have been ready to bury (or trade somehow) gomez for richards. so who knows if that's true...
