Gomez is going to a much more appealing situation in San Jose than Calgary. Being an American, he's probably happy going back to a US team in a much smaller hockey market than Montreal and even New York before it. San Jose is also projected by many to be better than the Flames this year. And San Jose doesn't experience -20 and worse weather in the winter...

Even if Calgary was going to try and sign him, I doubt Gomez would have been interested.
