Did you miss the point when you said they can't afford it and I just replied they can by burying Gomez and Kaberle.
I think Seguin can help that more than Gomez. Redden was buried by NY and he made more money why can't montreal do the same? This GM didn't even make the trade and this owner wasn't around when the trade happened also. (So they have no emotional attachment to him). nobody likes Gomez and they don't want him. If they have no choice and nobody will take him he will be buried
Lets also talk about economics for a second, how much money do you think they lose when the Bell center is not filled? Or they don't make the playoffs? It's actually very surprising none of you gentleman would think losing 5 million in the minors is a bargain compared to losing 15-20 million for not making it into the playoffs.
