Gomez not expected to return next year -- possibly be traded to the NYI this summer

http://sports.yahoo.com/nhl/news;_yl...s-2012-nhl-mon

Quote:
Center Scott Gomez may have played his final game in a Canadiens uniform. Gomez suffered an eye injury during a scrum in the corner in the third period of the March 1 game against the Minnesota Wild. The Canadiens said it will be a few days before doctors determine the exact nature of the injury but he is out indefinitely.

Gomez has two years remaining on a contract he originally signed with the New York Rangers, but he’s not expected to return next season.


There is an outside chance the Canadiens will be able to trade him, but it’s more likely the team will buy him out or bury him in the American Hockey League. With the salary cap going up once again in June, the floor will also rise and Gomez might be attractive to a team looking to fill cap space. Gomez’s contract is front-loaded and he is owed $10 million over the final two seasons, but has a cap hit of $14.6 million. One obstacle to a trade is Gomez has a limited no-trade clause in his contract, and he balked when the Canadiens tried to trade him to the New York Islanders.

The Canadiens, who fell to the Toronto Maple Leafs 3-1 on Saturday and next travel to Calgary to face the Flames on Tuesday, can save some cap space if they park Gomez in the minors, but they would be on the hook for the full $10 million he’s owed. If they buy him out, it would cost them $6.67 million but they would take a cap hit of about $1.6 million in each of the next four seasons.

Gomez’s production has gone steadily down in each of his three seasons in Montreal. He had 59 points in 78 games his first season and a career-low 38 points in 80 games last season. Injuries have limited him to 35 games and he had two goals and eight assists for 10 points.

I don't know how credible this is, but it seems very amateurish. Along with the 12 year olds commenting at the bottom.

I can't envision anyone doing this. There are far too many options of overpaid players whom would be readily available who could fill cap space but provide something in return.

DiPietro and Gomez on the same roster..........shouldn't be legal.

for teams that are financially in the toilet and that need to reach the cap, this CAN make sense... read the article, his cap hit is 14.6 mil, his salary is 10 mil...

$4.6 million is nothing to laugh at

There was a rumored Gomez to NYI trade LAST YEAR, so I think this article is a copy paste.

IIRC, the rumor was Scott Gomez for Josh Bailey, with some picks thrown in.

ETA: Gomez had a lot more value a year ago.

I got ya. Point remains the same. There are better options to reach the cap floor. C'mon.....can you imagine trying to sell this to your fan base? It'd be like trying to sell filet mignon to the Ghost.

all I know is that if he did indeed block a trade, it is absolutely mind-boggling that we didn't immediately demote him to Hamilton.

it's one thing for a player to use the NTC the team he signed with gave him (and where he potentially left money on the table to commit to them), it's another for a guy who is on his 2nd team, and who is absolutely underperforming, to use a clause another team gave him to block a trade.

in that case, screw him, bury him on the buses of Southern Ontario and let him collect his paycheck over there.

some will accuse me of piling on, but if PG tried to trade him, he refused, and PG did nothing about it, yet another sign of what a terrible leader he is for this franchise.

More than likely bought out than dealt, cause no one wants that loser. He's not even useful at league minimum.

I don't know about a trade, but I fully expect PG to do something with Gomez. If nothing is done, I have lost the little hope I have left in management.

I'm not getting my hopes up. I have read this stuff before. Gomer is like a boomerang. You try to toss him away and he comes back.

The OP can't read, that is not what this article says at all. I think this comes from the article in the Toronto Sun :

The injury has provided rookie Louis Leblanc another opportunity to play in the NHL. He and Andreas Engqvist were recalled from Hamilton after Gomez and Aaron Palushaj both suffered eye injuries in the Minnesota game.

As you can read, it's all spectulation. Wishful thinking!

PG has showned that nobody messes with him, Cammaleri spoke against the team and coach, traded two days later, Kostitsyn spoke bad about the coach, traded 2 weeks later, going back in history Sergei, Latendresse, etc. If Gomez really did what he did, Pierre would've kicked him to the curb for sure.

I dont buy this.

Not sure I follow.

Gomez has a NTC and allegedly blocks a trade to NYI.

Why couldn't the Habs just waive him in order for the Islanders to claim him? It's not like he would bring any value back in a trade..

Gomez has negative value so NYI likely expects to send negative value the other way. DiPietro would be a great backup for Price for the next 10+ years.
