If he signs for under $2M he will be a good value for any team that picks him up.
You clearly have never watched Montreal. Believe me, Gomez is beyond abysmal. Lapierre would be a better second line center. Gomez has only one skill left at the NHL level: speed. He can gain the zone but will inevitably be absolutely manhandled off the puck, has absolutely no vision or puck awareness, gets out of position constantly and on the astronomically rare occasion he takes a shot, it will hit the goalie's logo every bloody time. There is a reason it took over a year for him to score one damn goal.
Raymond - Gomez - Kassian
