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 doesnâ€™t need, in any way shape or form, the presence of Gomez in the lineup! Why isnâ€™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 canâ€™t understand why the Habs are keeping him in the mix.
Cheers and thank you for your time.
A: Philippe, because of Gomezâ€™s contract, heâ€™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 isnâ€™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 issueâ€¦.
