No, Gomez is only on the books because they put the acceleration addendum into the agreement at the last minute to keep teams from bubble-wrapping players. After teams already had themselves set for the cap including those players. Kaberle won't be on the cap if we buy him out this summer with our remaining compliance option, there's no "acceleration" in his case.
