Because he is waived, he is not holding a spot on the 23-man roster. We do have to pay another player, say around $600,000, to be the 13th or 14th forward, but we get to save $900k of Gomez' hit. And the buyout will only cost $3M when they finally do it.

To answer the other question someone brought up, no, if we had put him in the minors last year, it would not have made a difference this year or next.
OK, thanks.
A pretty sad ending for what seems to be a genuinly good guy.
But it the end, it is a business and this was a business decision. Hopefully he'll get a chance next season.
