What about once free agency hits as well; exactly how many? But part of the point is that those decisions have to all be made first to free up any spots for acquiring players, if Gomez is kept in the minors instead of just being bought out to free up that contract spot.
What's worse? Having only 49 contracts to work with for two years (while Gomez plays in the AHL, so he replaces contract anyways) or having to deal with a 2.5 M cap hit for 4 years?

Seriously, just bury the guy.
