Not really. Gonchar is a tad better offensively and Markov and is a tad better defensively. But of course, you are probably judging Gonchar as how he played with the Sens so far, it's not like it is easy to come in a new team and play in a ****ed-up system. But Gonchar has been the #1 D-man for a while, for an Elite team that won the Cup and also lost in the finals.

If it was Markov that came to Ottawa, you'd be saying the opposite, trust me.

But do you know that Markov played 45 games last season and only 7 this year? He is done for the season and doctors are not sure about his future. IMO, he will never be the same player

Also, Markov will turn 32 years old in 1 week. Gonchar turned 36 in April. Hardly the 6 years you are talking about
