At least, that's what I would expect. If Gomez plays really well this year... say puts up 30-40 points, that well... then *maybe* some weak cap floor team could rationalize picking him up in a trade... but for me, I'd say no way to holding *any* cap hit from him from the Habs' POV. If you've got the compliance buyout option, clear him fully if you can. Either trade the whole thing, or buy out the whole thing. No point in a half measure.
There are not a ton of good UFA's and they usually don't end up in NYI.
