Exactly. The smart thing to do is go over the cap in summer(Flyers do it all the time) with UFA signings, float Gomer for 2 months and see if we can get anyone to take him until just before camp, then gas him if no one takes him. Ideally don't have him at camp, a distraction to to say the least.
Although: keeping him through camp increases the chance another team has a big injury at center, and gets desperate.
If they act early on Gomer, then they are foolish. I'll be pissed off.
Don't expect anything until September, unless Gomer or another team initiates it.
