Like Jeff Carter, hate the 10 year contract. Not sure I'd want to take that on.

Most of these lines exclude Gomez but realistically, do we think that is going to happen? Yes, his cap will be larger than his salary the next 2 years, which may enhance his trade value but I don't think it makes him tradeable. And do we really think he will be buried in the minors? I'm not so certain. And everyone is talking about a potential one time buyout with no cap hit with the new CBA but that is an unknown. So, my gut tells me that Gomez will be a Hab next year and as such, I don't think any line combo without him seems to be fantasy.

I, for one, am not a Gomez hater like most. I know he is in an incredible slump but with the exception of one season, has never been a goal scorer. Worth his contract, heck no, no one is and definitely a player to move because of the contract.

I'm loving Eller, he is a player this team needs to keep. I expect Pleks to bounce back next season. The best trade chip may be DD, who is putting up numbers but his size and defensive play is a concern.
