Maybe the plan is to let them develop in the AHL, which would explain the asking for patience by Brisebois.

I wonder if the Habs management is planning for a season starting after Xmas because of a work stoppage.

Maybe Bergevin doesn't want Gomez around the young kids. No telling how he would react going to the minors. So maybe MB thinks its easiest to scratch him.

Who knows but we can put him waivers any time during season. People expect news now about something that may take place in training camp or maybe in February. Who knows.

For now, it seems like no buyout. Now it's just a matter of seeing what the options are and if Gomez appears to be a useful NHLer.

I am perfectly happy if we strike out on the FA market to keep him on the team as a #13 forward. Yeah, it sucks to spend that much money on him in a depth role - but I'd rather that, then buying him out completely (unless of course not buying him out, means they won't go after the good FA's) - but if they do and strike out and settle for a plan C (Boyes?), then I'm fine with keeping Gomez as a spare part, I guess.

I mean C depth wise, if one of DD, Eller, or Pleks goes down we have nothing better in the minors until Galchenyuk is ready.

So basically, if we need the cap space, send him to Hamilton or send him on loan (if he prefers). If we don't, we might as well keep him so long as he understands his role going forward. Under no circumstance, should we buy him out.

I always liked Brisebois. I especially loved him upon his second return to the habs. He's a good man.

I really doubt Brisebois has any idea or any say in Gomez'--or any player's--contract situation so I wouldn't read into what he said.

All he said is that the team has an awesome core and will get even better when some bad contracts expire.

What's your point?

I was mostly trying to say that it's silly to speculate on Gomez' future with the Habs based on Brisebois' comments.

Sounds like Brisebois has a lot of enthusiasm for his job and has a lot of experience he can trasmit to these kids. Like was mentionned in the article in the past, surrounding young playters was a big issue, hopefully they do bettor mentoring like Gonchar with Malkin and Crosby with Lemieux.

Gomez is overpaid but he seems like a nice person. I don't think he'll do something like that.

All the prospects went through the development camp. I see Breezer probably paying a visit to most of the guys with his skates and sticks in hand and working for an hour or two with them throughout the season. Go see one prospect, and work on skating with him if that's was one of his shortcomings. Take the kid out for dinner, and discuss the pro life with him. Tell him to keep working hard, work on your skating, and keep up the good work. Then head on down the road to the next prospect. Probably spend half his time working in Hamilton. A bit in Montreal with the rookies. Sounds like a full time job, but a satisfying one when they succeed or even just get a call up.

He was always a good guy and professional, so this job is probably tailor made for him.

The best thing for Gomez is to go play KHL for a year, get out of the NHL fishbowl, if he can go there and put up good numbers I'm sure somebody would take a chance on him for 1 year 7.35 cap hit 4.5 mil salary, lots of small market teams have tons of cap room and can't afford mainsteam UFA's.

Which one? The 30 second long one where they call Galchenyuk a russian?

For real, Is that the one though? I just see Brisebois at the end giving a hand to Nystrom

No one has mentioned Gionta and Markov? You guys like those contracts? They combine for 100 games per year and are on the decline. I personally can't wait for them to expire.

I took it that he was speaking of players like Gionta, Cole & Markov, as their deals ended, there will prospects ready to step in to the vacated roster spots & guys like Patches, Eller & PK will be ready to take on the leadership roles these guys provide.

What does this mean?

Brisebois will work with all of the teamís drafted and minor-pro defence prospects, probably skating with each except American university players; collegiate rules prohibit that.

Brisebois can't work with US college&university players because of rules preventing these players from getting benefits from pro teams. Same reason why NHL teams can't invite these players to training camp.

The way I understood it, Brisebois' job would be to help them in their personal life.
