The Habs will be clear winner if there's an amnesty buyout.
You and the other people with similar posts are right. Many teams have bad contracts, but that of Gomez is among the worst, and unlike NYR with Redden we can't (or won't?) bury him in the minors. When I wrote that incorrect post, I had not thought about it enough.
A good solution to the "players keep their contracts" issue, and the 50/50 issue, would be to:
- go to 50/50 very rapidly
- have no rollback of salaries
- Allow one or two buyouts per team, and have buyouts costs come out of the owner's share.
IMO this is "fair" as some players are more deserving of their contracts than others, lol. I'd be surprised if it happens though.
That said, getting rid of Gomez would be bad for the tank :-;
