The Habs get rid of his contract and cap hit and the Y team get a 7.3 cap hit help to reach the floor while adding a low salary at 2.75m. Both teams kill two birds with one stone. Best case scenario Gomez get claimed before going on re-entry in which case Y team would have to suck it but the Habs still win.

Is something like this even feasible or too much of a stretch ?
I believe when claimed on re-entry waivers the claiming team pays half the salary and only gets half the cap hit. Montreal will be left with the other half.
