Yes, his contract will be pro-rated, but it's still alot to pay for a guy who's as injury prone as Connolly is, combined with his lack of production. Since the end of the lockout, Connolly's played 63, 2, 48, 48, 73, 68 and 70 games in each season. All of that in the East and maybe most importantly the North-East. He'd have a much tougher time staying healthy in the West, and the Central, having to play St.Louis, Nashville, Vancouver and LA.

Neither guy are ideal options. Neither guy is really, at this point, a guy you'd necessarily want on your team.. but if I had the choice between the two, I'd take Gomez because he'll be alot cheaper and there's far less risk if he doesn't work out.
