We'd still have to trade for him.

A it wont be one year of Gomez. Just like Chicago wont be getting only one year of Havlat. A team like Washington could use BOTH Mogilny and Gomez in the NHL and if it doesent work...who cares...Mogilny is gone next year.
Anyway dont be suprised if it happens. It should also lower the cost of Gomez since you are accepting to help NJ in the process.

Can they negotiate a longer contract after an arbitration award? Otherwise outside of a sign-and-trade it would be a huge risk for the organization making the trade.

There is that -- a team that is willing to play Mogilny might see it as worth it, although AlMo was on waivers last year and there were no takers.

I would dump Ryder + 2nd/3rd round pick to land Gomez. Ryder's most likely going to be awarded a 2.5 million - 3 million dollar contract. Lets lowball and say he gets 2.5.If Gomez gets 5 million, that means we take on 2.5 million dollars in salary. Find anyone who wants Ribs and dump him for a pick.

New Jersey is happy because they get a good, young 30 goal scorer for half the price Gomez. The Habs are happy beacuse they get a very good 1st/2nd line centreman for Ryder/Ribiero essentially.

Our Lineup then looks like this:

Samsonov - Gomez - Kovalev ()
Higgins - Koivu - Perezhogin(Perez played his best hockey w/Koivu last year )
Johnson - Plecky - Kostisyn/Latendresse
Begin - Bonk - Murray

We would be SO fast. Ahhh... im probably dreaming

Gomez To Be Traded.

the only way we can get involved in a trade for Gomez would be the following way.
we need to involve a 3rd team, lets say St.louis.They are looking for a goaler and
Lou Lamorelli wants to include Mogilny's contract as part of any Gomez trade.

therefore your deal will look like this.

to mtl : Scott Gomez
to N.J : Michael Ryder
to STL avid Abeisher, Mogilny and a 2nd round draft pick

trading ryder ( 2.5 mil ) + abeisher ( 1.9 mil ) = 4.4 million
Gomez will make 5 mil + now affordable for the habs

jersey freeing cap space by giving mogilny 3.5 mil will allow them to sign ryder

and st.louis gets a goaly from mtl and a 2nd round draft pick from jersey as a favour
for taking on mogilny's contract that will only count on their cap but they don't
actually have to pay him.

Stl takes Mogilny and cap hit of 3.5M - which is a negative these days, especially with him at 37. Mackattack idea doesnt really solve Devils main problem.

I put similar prop out the other day on trades board, except it was:

MTL Gomez
NJ Ribeiro
DET/STL/FLA/any other team looking for a goalie Aebischer+Mogilny/Malakhov

Got surprisingly little flak for that ...
