Agreed. It just depends what they want to do next year. Do they want to make a run? Or use this as a transition year and sell some pieces? If their plan isn't to make a cup run, may they want to take the high road and keep "Mr Gomez" one more year, then the next year, buy him out at a much more reasonable rate/time frame. Molson is Mr Good Guy lately (Listening to the fans, Cammy's sweater etc).
What's he getting for his last year? 4.5M ? 2/3 x 4.5M /2y = 1.5M over 2 years, right? That doesn't sound so bad.
On the other hand, if they want to do a 1 year turn around, they may just say "bye-bye", by whatever means necessary.
