Cap wise it makes sense to bury him in the minors.

Buying him out out save Molson money but comes with a cap hit.

Player wise, well buying him out instead of letting him rot in the minors is the "right" thing to do. We spent a lot of time complaining that Gauthier wasn't good with people and that as an organization we weren't handling things with much class and dignity. Sending him to the minors keeps Gomez in $$$ but offers him no chance to play in the NHL with another team. The report doesn't say when Gomez will be bought out, just that he will. They may wait until they know if there's an amnesty buy out.
