Another poster already suggested - why not wait until next season? And what if you hit a string of injuries - can he be called back? Wouldn't that be awkward and it's not like this team is injury prone or anything. LOL

Would Gomez count as part of the 23 man roster while being sent home?

Gomez Officially Out

https://twitter.com/CanadiensMTL

"Marc Bergevin:"Scott Gomez will not take part in the 2012-13 season and his contract will be bought out this summer."

Now with Gomez out and his contract going to get bought out who do you think will draw in the fourth line, Nokelainen, Galchenyuk, even though he wasn't invited to camp Louis Leblanc.
Do you think this is a good idea?

I think so, Laraque did in 2009-10 when they did this.

Because if he gets hurt for several months, we can't buy him out.

You can burry the first $900k of a contract in the minors, but everything over that counts. So they're essentially assigning him to the minors but not playing him there.

Can we change the title to "Scott GoHomez?" Because I don't want to thank him for being on this team. Cost us my favorite player at the time plus our best prospect.

The first 900k don't count on the cap if a player is not on the NHL roster. He was likely sent to the AHL and told to stay home I imagine...

Blame Gainey for the trade not Gomez.

He's saving money doing this. Cap hit can't be replaced (save 900k) and the buyout of the final year is less money over more time.

But at least from a hockey standpoint, the team is willing to make unpopular decisions (amongst the players) to ensure the long-term health of the team.

"Part of the business" answers.

Wow.. I guess my thread yesterday wasn't such a crazy thread afterall. I expect the Rangers will do the same with Redden.

I feel bad for Scott (he was still playing hockey this year even with the lockout) because he seems like a great team guy, but this is the smartest thing to do from the team's perspective.

Teams really should have had the option to buyout a player before the 48-game season. Gomez needs ice-time (somewhere) if he wants to get back to the NHL next year. Sucks for him to be benched for the entire season.

Now, do we carry 22 players only? Or do we send him to the AHL (whilst still sitting him out), so we can carry 23?

Is he? The money that Scott Gomez would have costed will be used to pay someone else so that in the end result, Molson is actually paying more (Gomez's buyout + new player).

He wont play. Period.
He gets injured, they can't buy him out.

But.. yeah, I wonder what happens with the roster spots now.

I feel bad for Gomez. Must suck knowing how bad you've been and not getting the chance to redeem yourself. It's a bed a made, but still. It's gotta suck.

He was a good guy but his play didn't warrant what might be one of the worst contracts in NHL history.

Good luck, Scott.
