Lou doesn't have much of a choice and any GM worth his paycheck knows it. He's painted himself into a corner and he will pay dearly.
And I'm sure not as dearly as alot of people are hoping, what Lou gets back for Gomez - if he was to trade him - depends not how desperate he is - if he is at all - but how big of a market there is. It's supply and demand man, if you guys, Phoenix, Colorado and the other teams who might be interested in Gomez will determine what Lou gets in return.
And if Lou can't get close to fair value for Gomez chances I'm sure he'll look to dump salary else where instead and wait till the trading deadline to see if he can get better value then considering there are probably going to be alot of teams who will feel that a rental of Gomez could put them over the top.

completly agree with u there also specially when ur no1 goalie is BRODEUR who needs a back up
Actually if any year we are looking for a good backup for Marty it's this year, we can't play him 70 games anymore, the wear and tear is getting to much for him and they gotta cut it down to 55-60 games and I think they are going to try to shoot for that.
