Plus side of having him in Hamilton is he'd probably clear re-entry waivers no problem at all. Or is that the downside?
The Habs wouldn't have a reason to put Gomez on re-entry waivers, unless they were doing so for another team to claim him.

As an example, if Montreal sent Gomez down now - that would be putting him on waivers.

At the end of the season, all players with pro contracts are brought back up to the NHL and then the players who aren't staying with the big club for the next season are sent back down/ or assigned elsewhere (KHL, AHL, CHL).

Which would be putting him back on waivers.

If, however, Gomez was sent down (clearing waivers) and then recalled back up during the regular season, that would then be putting Gomez on re-entry waivers.
