True, but they probably looked at trying to deal him, and no one would bite......would he go to the AHL? He then could still get hurt...tough spot for MB.

MB said that he tried to trade Gomez, but that he couldn't find a sucker.

Pretty sure he can play hockey, but not in an organized league.

He's not under house arrest you know. They could mutually terminate the contract if gomez cared about his passion more than his paycheque.

Bergevin didn't decide Gomez wouldn't play this year. Scott Gomez decided that with his performance the last two years.

So if Gomez wants to play, he technically could retire to terminate the contract and then sign with another team..right?

Correct. Wouldn't even need to retire.

Apparently Bergervin is classless now, because he didn't tell Gomez a week ago (when the CBA wasn't settled) to stay home.

And as a coach you do what with him? Play him on your 4th line or your 3rd? I think there's going to be better options for pretty much every team regardless of how much he's asking for.

But he would lose a beautiful 5.5 million this spring and 4.5 this summer...

Wholeheartedly agree on this one... I've been saying it for years. Skiing down a bunny hill with your young daughter is not the same as playing NHL hockey.

This is the correct and obvious move. Not something out management has had the guts to do in the past.

You can only be happy with Bergevin so far. Great draft. Locked up Price and MaxPac too good contracts. Didn't spend stupid money on free agents.

Sure, Gomez could have helped us a little bit this season, but we have to get out of the 8th place finish mode. Either we have a chance at the cup or we should be playing young players and getting high draft picks.

Is this a sign that Gally will be here from day 1 and playing center? Let's hope so.

Awesome. I don't want Bergevin to be too nice. This isn't a country club. You want him to ruthless when he needs to be. Either you're helping the team to win or you don't belong here.

Hes not even a minimum cap player. With his results he shouldn't even be seeing the AHl right now.

Was wondering this same exact thing. If Gomer terminates his contract does that mean he comes off our cap??

Actually he is not getting the full 5.5 this year because of the lockout (at least I think so).

I also want to know if the Habs do buy him out, does he get the full 4.5 million? If not, this year and next year combined, Gomez gets paid like 6 of the 10 million left. I wonder if it's better if he just tries to find a new contract now instead of next year where he will have missed a whole year of hockey.

It's going to take quite some time for this mess to be turned around. The first was getting rid of "Goat". Now we need to build through the draft for all those involved.

In fact under that scenario he can't retire. Under the old CBA, once you officially retired, you couldn't play again for 3 years. So he would have to mutually agree to terminate his contract if he really wanted to play next year.

I'm not sure he can simply retire forfeiting the remaining of his contract then sign with another NHL team. Otherwise a player who produces more than the value of his contract could retire then sign for more with another team.

Gomer may just retire. If he was smart he would take all the money and just go away.
