Gomez' deal, however difficult to stomach, is by far the team's worst contract. It expires at the end of next season.
Other teams are saddled with deals that extend into the 22nd century (Luongo, Lecavalier, Redden and many others). These teams are getting let of a much larger, more painful hook than the Habs.
Redden deal expires at the end of last season as well. And TB won't buyout Lecavalier.
