In addition to this point, any one dead set on a single option of how to handle Gomez right now before the new CBA is settled should be fired for being way too ahead of themselves. No one knows what bad contract options there will be this summer. The AHL loophole might be closed, there might be an amnesty period and the terms of a regular buyout might be changed.

You might be also in a position to trade him to a team that struggles to get to the floor like the Islanders so they can get that free ~5 million of dead cap for the next two years due to the way a normal buyout would be costed.
