Scott Gomez for $1 million anybody

Will be bought out tomorrow under latest agreement between league and NHLPA. He'll get a one year deal for peanuts. He might be out to prove himself. My guess is he's gone right away as a UFA. We could use another centre

No thanks, he's done plenty of proving already for my taste.

I'd rather the spot he'd take be used for the youth.

Imagine we sign Gomez in replace of Grigorenko to start the season, would almost be worth it to hear the whiner line...jk of course.

No, Montreal gave him more than enough time to prove his worth.

[Also, Mods isn't it almost time for an official trade/rumor/proposal thread rather than all these sign and proposal threads cluttering up the board? I could understand if they were legit sourced rumors or speculation. Maybe I'm getting ahead of myself, just a thought.]

If I were Montreal I would tell Gomez and his agent that we will agree to buy you out now, but you cannot sign with another NHL team in the Eastern Conference this year.

They have no control over where he signs. Nor should they.

Ok, here is how the conversation would go with Gomez and his agent.

If you want to play somewhere this year then you cannot sign with x,y,z. Otherwise, we are not going to buy you out and you can sit at home this season.

No thats not what will happen. If he is going to be bought out as per and agreement between the NHLPA and NHL then there will be no preconditions. So no, that talk will not take place.

I am willing to bet even if there was no agreement Montreal wouldn't care where he went, Scott Gomez isn't going to put any team over the top...

The League and PA came to an agreement to allow clubs to buy out a player before Saturday. It is now up to Montreal and Gomez as to whether this happens.

"the club may provide the player with the option to be bought out, instead of being loaned. Before the buyout can take place, the player must first give his written consent by no later than Friday."

Why take the risk? There is no benefit to Montreal to buy out Gomez now. They can have him sit at home and buy him out this summer.

If you were the Rangers would you want Redden to sign with the Flyers for 750K?

Again he is either bought out or not. THE TEAM CANNOT PUT PRECONDITIONS ON IT.

Why is this so hard for you to grasp? You may think you're clever thinking this up but its not allowed. So if the Habs bought him out, how exactly would they enforce this illegal precondition?

If the Sabres can try to resurrect the career of Joe Finley, yeah, I'd be on board with Gomez at a cheap price.

Why on earth would these teams be scared of Gomez or Redden signing with their rivals?

You do realize they can sign with those same rivals after being bought out in the summer as well.

Ok, show me the rule that says they can't have that discussion with Gomez and his agent before agreeing to buy him out.

A GM wouldn't be able to enforce it, but I would still have that discussion with the player and his agent. If they cross me, shame on them. The player might not care, but the agent has to continue to deal with that club.

Not interested at all, even at vet minimum. We need to open a spot for Grigorenko, not close one by signing Gomez.

No GM would ask this and no agent would agree to it.

Its really this simple. A team either buys a player out or they don't. Once they do he is a UFA and can sign where ever they want. Thats it.
