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.
Would you still rather pay Gomez this money over Kovalchuk
