But I wouldn't be surprised to see Gomez play out whatever's left of his contract here.
He seems like a great guy to have around seeing how nobody ever said a bad word about him, so if he settles into a lower role, he might just stick around.
Of course, him being bought out wouldn't surprise me either.

Bergevin needs to sign PK asap, and for a good price.

Barring a massive development in the next 6-7 months Gomez is definitely getting bought out or traded. It's the only logical way to get comfortably under the cap and have some options next summer. I'm sure Bergevin and Molson are hoping he bounces back so they can trade him and don't have to buy him out...but I'm sure they have already resigned themselves to the fact that it's almost a done deal.
