The Capers whose 3-4 was pretty integral in winning the Super Bowl in 2010? Yeah no.

Also, Gomez- class act. Sorry it had to end this way. Same for Driver.

Well, if Gomez really want to stay with the habs, all he has to do is throw himself down the stairs.

The guy was still not worth that kind of money EVEN with those 97 games for his overall game. Imagine when he started to "slow down". Rangers, while not necessarily a model of great decisions, wanted to get rid of him to make room for who exactly as their top 2 C's? They wanted to get rid of him despite his stats. We decided to get rid of Koivu to make room for Gomez. And get rid of, at the time, one of the 2 best prospect on D. Made no sense then, makes no sense now, will make even less sense in the future.

The bottom line though is Molson will go from being scheduled to pay Gomez 4.5 M...to paying him 1.5 M in 2013-14 and 1.5 M in 2014-15.
Gomez is supposed to be paid $5.5m this season. Sine we only have 48 games left, I think he is owed 5.5 * 48/82 = 3.22 + last year buy out spread over two years?

It's an injury suffered while playing hockey that would prevent us from buying him out.

Exactly.

Hence why he can't even skate with the team in practices.

He's essentially getting a 3-month paid vacation at about $250K per week.

You are only supporting my point here. At 7.5 million a 61 pt pace is definitely underachieving especially when he didn't bring a physical or effective defensive game to the table.

Higgins, even with his struggles still had a higher trade value than Gomez as like I said, Gomez had negative value and Gainey got absolutely suckered.

Imagine....The Habs could have Ryan McDonough, PK Subban, Andre Markov as a top three right now. With Josh Gorges, A. Emelin and Diaz rounding the botton three.

Kaberle a number 7.

Guys like Tinordy Thrower Ellis and Beaulieu waiting to step in...

It was either McDonaugh or Galchenyuk. I'd prefer Gally.

Don't get this? Why? 'Cause getting Gomez made us suck so bad that we finished in the bottom 3? Okay, I get it now....

So, is he being "Stephon Marburyed"? Not even going to send him down...just pay this year's salary and then cut him loose?

We tried to put him in a box.

Bubble wrapped and shipped home to avoid injury. If he were to get injured, they would not be able to buy him out during the off-season.

Good Decision.

Too risky to play Gomez and not being able to buy him out if he got injured

We were obviously watching different players. Even Gainey sat down with Gomez and told him he needed to put more effort into his game.

I understand why Bergevin did this move, but I don't agree with it. Denying a professional hockey player to play hockey just doesn't seem right

I can guarantee you, if they sent him to Hamilton or gave him one last chance this season, the boards would have exploded had he gotten injured. Bergevin evaluated the situation and felt it was too much of a risk.

The idea is that if you don't buy him out, you have to bury him in the minors till his contract expires. So you better sit him out, and give him a chance to go back in the NHL as soon as next year. Mind you, tons of teams usually stop playing in April if they don't make the playoffs, so Gomez is actually not playing for 3 months. Not a full year.

I got to admit, I don't like it from an avoiding potential curses/re-establishing a culture of doing right by players after a regime of ****tiness perspective.
