Now we get 2 years less to pay a 66% salaray + a possible rollback or even better, a special clause that could reduce a buy-out.
Exceptional managemenrt by keeping Gomez? They don't really have a choice. And the only people that wanted the habs to buy Gomez out were fans. Nothing exceptional here, GMs should never listen to fans, especially the fickle ones in montreal.

Everyone knows its stupid to buy Gomez out. In fact, Bob Mckenzie wrote an entire piece on how stupid such a move woud be and even implied that any management that would buy out Gomez should pretty much be canned for stupidity.

Exceptional management would be finding a way to trade Gomez. Good management would be to send him down. In the case of keeping him, well they didn't have a choice.

That aside, I wouldn't mind seeing Gomez on the wing with Eller and Armstrong.
