Secondly, as with any 35+ player, I'd really think long and hard about any deal longer than 2 years, the cap hit be damned, since the penalties for player contracts at that age are greater.

We could very well lose more money than we'd save by giving Gonchar a long-term deal than maintaining our roster flexibility, especially as Goligoski and Letang develop.
