Mike is definitely a top 10 UFA this summer, top 3 among D, so it is not surprising that this is starting already…I have continually heard that he loves Montreal and that his first choice would be to re-sign there…but his value may be too high…this is just a quick hit that came up as I was working on my blog about what the Ducks are going to do this summer [source]
I am told The team that knows they can re-sign him will likely will put up something in the area of a #1 pick, a prospect, and a third liner. The team that I am hearing that is closest is definitely the LA Kings. However a few teams on the playoff bubble willing to take him as a rental, mainly Nashville, Anaheim and Columbus, are also very much involved to this point. [link]
Ok Scott Gomez is getting lots of interest. There was a time before the Mats saga ended when the Canucks were very interested.

One source went a step further saying, “I wouldn’t rule out a scenario where Scott Niedermayer were to end up on Broadway as a part of a Gomez deal.
