If I read correctly, under this change, we could see something like:

Trading Gomez to a team with a low budget and internal cap while retaining 5mil in salary. (10mil left on his contract)

Habs gain a potential asset (bag of pucks), save 5mil $, free 7,35mil cap space
Team X has 7,35mil more to reach the cap floor while paying him only 5mil for the next 2 seasons

Its also better for Molson's pockets than the compliance buyout next summer
