Would you have given up a top 3 pick to Toronto so they could buy out Gomez for you? As you say, "those savings could net you a much better player". And I was saying he is 2 million or so overpaid (per annum on the cap, obviously). Don't begin to talk about salary because you want to take his contract to help the cap situation, not salary.
