GOMEZ AWARDED $5 MILLION THROUGH ARBITRATION (Falls to ice.....pukes)

New, comments

This is still more than GM Lou Lamoriello wanted to pay Gomez, and is less than the $7 million Gomez thought he was worth. It still puts the Devils over the cap by about 4.5 million, and F Brian Gionta has not even been signed yet.
The Devils have 48 hours to decide what they will do. Which is obviously to sign Gomez and then trade him, or someone else. The fallout in Jersey begins....




Here is the Devils' current situation.
