Kind of don't really have a choice, not that I disagree with your sentiment. Give these boys the chances to state their cases and prove they can still play and re-evaluate their game over this summer. If they feel one or the other, or both, still have some game left in them then either buy one of them out or give them both a second chance at it. Teams have the summer of 2013 and 2014 to buyout two players. Now is their chance to pull their weight a bit.
As for Gomez, makes no sense. After this short 48 game season, he has one year left on his contract. He could easily be trade bait for a team struggling to hit the cap floor.
"I really like the way Drew Doughty plays the game. He's like a defenceman version of Erik Karlsson."
