I suspect that if Gomez is traded, the Devils will get a nice package in return, one remaining RFA year or not. He's a top player.

As mentioned, the only reason to trade him, as opposed to lesser role players, to free up the necessary cap space would be because Gomez carries the most trade value of the movable assets. If teams are not prepared to pony up what Lamoriello considers fair value, then you move to trading other, less critical assets for minimal return.
