He is now on waivers and will probably be bought out within the next day or 2.

Ok, then the same thing I said except replace "trade" with "waiver pickup". For whatever reason, I thought he had already cleared, but I don't see how this changes the point. It's not like we'd be giving up more than a bag of pucks in a theoretical "trade" anyway.

He will not be bought out though, because if they were to buy him out this year, there would be a significant cap hit for years to come. Next summer, there is an amnesty where two players per team can be bought out without cap penalty. It's been widely reported in the media that Gomez will be one of these two for the Habs. Preserving this option is why he's being asked not to show up to the AHL in order to prevent the possibility of injury, which would stop them from exercising the amnesty buyout.

I may be full of shit, but I beleieve if a team uses the "compliance" buyouts this week, then the cap hit is only for this season and none in the future. The cash payout is the same - 2/3 of the salary reaming split over the life of the contract times two

Thanks Vader & DBR. I just heard about that deal on Sportsnet and came back to the thread to admit my "oopsie". :oops:

That deal makes sense, and yes, Gomez does become a realistic option now. I think it's something to consider if Schroeder fails to impress. We clearly can't expect much production out of him, but he's a veteran option who probably won't hurt us. Good thought, Reef. :blush:

How good would SJ look if you deleted Pavelski and Couture from their lineup?

I hate to rely on injuries, but when you're missing 2 of your top 5 forwards...I think you are going no where.

I wonder how good Joe Thornton would look with Kesler draped all over him instead of Schoeder or Ebbet.




...or pre-injury Manny :cry:

No concern necessary.

Kesler had shoulder and wrist surgery on his left side.

No worries, wasn't sure myself till I checked it out. I just remembered him having the sling on his left side in that twitter pic in the summer.

He looks like he's coming along just fine, he didn't drop the baby or anything so that's a good sign.
