Hence mtl shipping him home in bubble wrap. I dont understand todays canuck rumours about gomez, if gomez isnt available untilthe summer, i would hope theres a few more UFA centers to target first

Redden and Gomez will get to play this year, but the buyout acts works exactly as if they'd been bubble wrapped and bought out in the coming summer. They stay on the cap and get their full salary for this season. In exchange New York and Montreal don't have to worry about them getting injured between now and then, thus preventing a buyout. It also opens up a roster spot on each squad.
