Scott Gomez expects the Montreal Canadiens to buy out his contract, according to TVA Sport.
Gomez, who went a year between goals and has just two on the season, has told friends he think the Habs will cut ties with him at the end of the season. He still has two years left on a contract he signed with the New York Rangers in 2007, a deal that carries a $7.36 million salary cap hit.
The TVA Sports report also speculates that Gomez could wind up with his former team, the New Jersey Devils, after he's let go by the Canadiens. Gomez played seven seasons with the Devils and had his most productive year --33 goals and 51 assists -- with the team.
Gomez has been a huge bust with the Habs the last two seasons. He had seven goals and 31 assists in 80 games last season and has just two goals and nine assists in 38 games this year.
