Gomez is arguably the worst trade the Habs have ever made, yes you can make a case for it ranking above Roy.
Put into context, Burke may have overestimated what he had in Toronto but no one predicted the Leafs to freefall the way they did, while on the flip side everyone panned the Gomez trade immediately. Sure, his complete inability to do anything was unforeseen but that was a bad trade the instant it happened, whereas the Kessel deal only became bad in hindsight. Not to mention at the end of the day, Kessel is a dynamic sniper with tons of potential and one of the most lethal shots in the league. We ended up with nothing.
