Wow couple of silly posters from both sides of the argument here... If I have a team that wants to succeed now I would trade Gomez to get Lecavalier 100% of the team no questions asked no refunds.

If I want to rebuild (like the Habs should try to do) then trading Gomez for Lecavalier makes no sense because of the contract.

If Lecavalier is my captain and face of the franchise I keep him (like Tampa wants to). Gomez now is likely a worse player than a 41 year old Lecavalier. Furthermore Lecavalier's salary goes to something negligible. Cap hit stays the same obviously but I doubt Tampa will ever spend to the cap consistantly every year. Even then there should be changes to the CBA before the time when Lecavalier enters the twillight zone of his uneding contract.

In other words this trade doesn't make any sense for anyone.

I can live with Gomez+2nd/decent prospect for Lecavalier, anything else would be just too risky.
