I don't agree with Legends of Hockey because my eyes told me that Gonchar didn't get good defensively until about 2007. And I've seen at least 75% of the Pens games since '05. He may have been improving defensively through that time, but he wasn't extremely reliable (which he did get to eventually) in his own zone until around 07 in my mind.
