With the reality of the shrinking cap and the need to sign Subban, there really wasn't any other viable option.

It would also figure that Bergevin would rather not be saddled with the ongoing melodrama surrounding Gomez. Most new managers would rather not be burdened with the problems of his predecessor if it all possible.

Also, Gomez played 11 games with the ECHL Alaska Aces this season and I would be shocked if the Canadiens management didn't have a scouting presence at a number of these games to assess whether or not Gomez had exhibited sufficient improvement in his game to justify going forward with him on the roster.

All things considered, it seems like the decision was a fairly easy one from a hockey and financial perspective.

Many of us are going to need to find a new whipping boy
