With the new management in place, I would be shocked if Gomez were on the roster regardless of the new CBA. With the thorough house cleaning in the management ranks, the organization clearly wants to turn the page on the recent dismal past.

Going forward with Gomez in the fold makes no sense from any psychological standpoint. Gomez is rightfully associated with failure-on so many levels. The Canadiens are extremely financially successful, so while sucking up Gomez' $15m remaining cap hit (I'm assuming the team spends to the cap) is not cheap, it's an extremely doable option.

The Wade Redden situation has already created a precedent for a respectable organization to bury a high-priced albatross in the minors. Why wouldn't the Canadiens wouldn't follow this established blue print?

Gomez will be playing in Europe or the AHL this season. The Habs can't start anew with him on the big team.
