Gomez you have to assume he is waived and his cap hit is gone or it will be hard to improve/fill some holes.

Bourque's cap hit is 3.3 mil, even by trading him you open another hole that would cost that much or more to fill so makes no sense to dump him. I think he can pretty easily outproduce his cap hit if he bounces back at all.

Kaberle would be money in and money out if we can add a big stay at home d-man then look at moving him in late July early August.

It's easy to say clear gazillions of cap room but there is not an infinite amount of talent to bring in, Gomez is not only a big cap hit but has no projectable role next year with Eller-DD-Plekanec in place.
