EDIT:

yeah they can still fit everything in according to capgeek. Nevermind.

But He's not playing.

No excuses!

Absolutely.

He's going to be getting approx. 6.17 million (3.2 million for this year + 2.97 million for next year's buyout) for sitting out 3-4 months of hockey.

No one is telling him he will never be able to play hockey again for the rest of his life. It's 3-4 months!

What happened?
Because cap floor teams don't perpetuate that myth that is ever so prevalent here on HFBoards.

What's also sad is that seeing what is happening to Gomez, no team has come up front and offered him the opportunity to give him one last chance.

Most teams can't afford to gamble with that contract. I think we are finally seeing the downside to some of those ridiculous contracts given over the last CBA.

I think once Gomez is bought out he will be able to find a team and I wish him the best at that time, but for now he's toxic.

If his contract was heavily front loaded, you could get some interest from the poorer teams. However he is still owed 10 millions over two years (or closer to 8 with a short season) if not bought out which gives him negative value.

Those who feel bad about Gomez, well, you reap what you sow, that's it, he deserves what's happening, time to move on.

Bubble wrap him. Feed him through a tube.

You can't bury caps in the minors anymore. Also, if he breaks his leg in Hamilton, we may have his cap on the books next year. With the cap dropping, they have no choice. Unless you'd rather not sign Subban.

New CBA, new rules. You can now only bury $900K in the minors. The rest of the cap hit remains.

If I recall, we were both applying for masters at McGill last year, weren't we? I took the concept of ontological security from Jennifer Mitzen who wrote on it in an IR context. If you ever got to do any IR theory, you'd know her primarily for being Alexander Wendt's wife.

yeah we were. I absolutely love the way you tied into Gomez's situation so well. I don't do IR, but ontological security sounds interesting, might have to give it a read.

Do you really think he could do worse ? Having him play 48 games and getting 20-25points on the 3-4 lines would have been decent for me.
