Meh, a lot of people said that Morrison was done a couple years ago as well. He was given a tryout with Vancouver but they didn't feel comfortable giving him a 1 way deal. About to head into the season without a contract things looked pretty bleak.

Instead he became the Flames first line center (of course not an amazing feat) and scored 43 points in 66 games while leading them in +/-.

Gomez isn't as old as Morrison and isn't coming off the same injuries. I feel like calling him done would be premature regardless of how terrible he was for the Canadiens. Had it not been for his contract he would have been traded from Montreal long ago and could have had a bit of a rejuvenation playing under different circumstances that we see not infrequently.
