Scott Gomez has the worst contract of any player in the NHL who is not consistently hurt. He's never played less than 72 games, but also has not been an elite player throughout his career, despite being paid like one.
Gomez's current contract has a salary cap hit of about $7.35 million for three more seasons. He won't become an unrestricted free agent until the summer of 2014.
Gomez posted career lows in goals (7), assists (31) and plus-minus (minus-15) last season for the Montreal Canadiens, and played terribly in the team's first-round series loss to the rival Boston Bruins in seven games last year.
With that said, he is a veteran who can provide leadership to a young team, and with the right fit, could play as a solid No. 2 center.
Let's look at five teams who may be willing to acquire Scott Gomez.
