Move Gomez?

Darren Dreger of TSN answers some fan email,

We have been talking about this for some time in Montreal. Nobody seems to be willing to give us the answer we are looking for! We see that Montreal doesn’t need, in any way shape or form, the presence of Gomez in the lineup! Why isn’t the management team making a drastic move and either getting rid of him, buying him out or burying down in the minors? I understand this is easier said than done but I most certainly can’t understand why the Habs are keeping him in the mix.

Cheers and thank you for your time.

A: Philippe, because of Gomez’s contract, he’s an easy target for you, Habs fans in general and the media to attack! At $7.3 million per season through 2013-2014 there really isn’t a whole lot the Montreal Canadiens can do to shed that enormous contract. There is no - nor will there be - a trade unless Pierre Gauthier can find a trade partner with a similar issue….

more plus additional questions…

The shock of Sather actually being able to unload that contract has never subsided.

The only place he can go is Hamilton.  Sad his game disappeared.
