I find it almost irrational to say that Gomez absolutely must not ever play for the Habs again.

It's not about kneading statistics into a loaf of logical certainty that Gomez will return to his truly true form. It's not about sympathy for the man, that poor wanderer stuck in a fast-moving modern world that's paying him millions of dollars to play a game that used to be so simple on the frozen lakes and rivers in the wilderness of Alaska.

No, it's just that the Habs have nothing to lose, at this point, in letting him play himself on or off the roster in September. Pure business. If there's a chance to improve the team before then, and that means ditching his cap hit, then say yee-haw and make it so. Until then let him compete for a job and maybe give Therrien some options.
