A lot of people here feel the same way. And I still don't get it. Gonchar is better than Whitney. Bottom line. He's an extra $1 million cap hit better. Age and salary shouldn't supercede talent and results, imo. Because if we chose Whitney over Gonchar, we'd be without a true No. 1 blueline until/unless Letang became one.

I'd rather keep the one we have. The only way I would agree with you is if it's CLEARLY evident that Whitney has surpassed Gonchar once both return from injury. Since neither needed brain surgery, I doubt that's going to happen.
