I voted ''no'' but I'm afraid he's still going to be around at training camp. If he wants a chance, he will need to prove he deserves it.

I think its between him, Leblanc and Gallagher for the last spot unless we sign Doan, Semin or trade for a legit top6.

All I hope for is that he's not kept to be a center unless its the fourth line. Plekanec, Desharnais and Eller are all miles ahead of him as of now.

At least Nokelainen is 6'2'' and fights once in a while. He's also a ''better'' goal scorer (Gomez )

3 : Offer Gomez on loan to a non-NHL team of his choice
4 : ???
5 : Profit

Thats what the Blackhawks did to Cristobal Huet in order to evade his monstrous cap hit. Gomez's cap hit is much higher than his salary in the next two years so it wouldn't be that expensive for the Habs (ie 10m till he's UFA but we save 14.6m in cap space over 2 years)
