Instead of paying Gomez 4.5 M in 2013-14, he'll be paying him 3 M. He gains 1.5 M.
Presumably the Habs will be a cap max team anyway, so, a Gomez buyout would be 3M in addition to the 64mil spent on the actual team - as opposed to the 57mil available without buying him out. But given the truckloads of cash Molson will be making on this CBA, I think Hab fans should be outraged if he cheaps out on buyouts. I think he'll spend the money.
