I would give him another chance, frankly i dont think we have much choice with the salary/contract. we bury him in the minors... and imo it'll be a huge waste to molson's pocket. im sure that'll haunt us somewhere... If we buy him out, there was an excellent thread/post talking about the extra length that punishes us for (something like 3.7 for another 3-4 years)...
New coach, perhaps a much better gomez is ready to show up? (One can hope) he can reclaim some value so that he's not a horrendous negative to the trading block...
I dont like the idea of blowing picks to get rid of a contract...
The only clear thing for me, is that Gomez more than likely only has this 1/2 season to impress ANYONE at all in to taking a zinger on him.
This being said, I know I heard PHX was interested in summer due to his latin roots, and Team USA history... He'd be marketable in that market...
Otherwise, STL (Davidson has good history with Gomez, they're good friends), and NYI (the NY area, due to his long time spent being a ranger, and a devil).... Ive also heard as destinations...
However with an open offensive game, I think Gomez would actually be able to show that he's much better than he has looked like over the past year and 1/2. I refuse to acknowledge that he's lost all of it already. Maybe he just couldnt play in Martin's defensive system game... Last summer when they resigned Gill, there was a conversation in re: the 09 playoffs, talking about how the boys were complaining to eachother as to how to play the game... Gomez on the one side, thinking offensively. Gill on the other... defensively. From the account, Gill won...
I think Goomez has more or less struggled putting points up in this defensive scheme
