Just out of curiosity, doesn't the new CBA allow trades in which the trading team still assumes partial salary? So the Habs could have shopped Gomez for $3 mil to someone, picked up the other $3.4 or so, and paid Gomez less money over all. Not sure who can trigger the buyout then, but interesting to think about. Might save money long-term for ownership and let Gomez live out the rest of his days frolicking with other mediocre players on a team trying to hit the cap floor and looking for some cheap leadership.
