I've checked the Hab threads for the last couple days and haven't seen anything mentioned (forgive me if I left some rocks un-turned).

Is there any actual news on what's going on?

Personally I would think Gomez is given a chance to play under the new coach before a decision is made (new coach, new system) because I've heard it said that Gomez doesn't play well under the dump-and-chase system that Martin/Cunneyworth employed, and Therrien may have better performances from him.

Thanks for the help/clarifications.
I think that ship has sailed. I like our centers 1-3 and hope we draft another next Friday(Galcheyuk). The only solution for Gomez is to bite the bullet and waive him late summer and allow him to find a spot to play anywhere in the world.

We need his cap room in order to not have to rush young players and bounce back from last year's crappy season.
