Even dumping Gomez will not ensure we can do anything other than bring up some rookies to play. 60 million minus Gomez' 7.3 million + Subban's "x" million leaves us with maybe 2 million or less to sign 7 players in order to have a 23 man roster.

I am not great at math, so I will be happy to have someone show me where I am wrong, but it seems like the only thing we can do is buyout Gomez.

Bourque will be fine. He will turn it around with Plekanec and Gionta pushing him. Gionta gets the best out of his line mates and I can see our captain whipping Bourque into shape.
Buyout Gomez and trade Gionta at the deadline, we can move Markov or Kaberle if needed, it's not the end of the world.
