Sounds pretty similar to our own McCabe contribution ..

To the untrained eye it looks similar. But McCabe this season is scoring at a 1.12 point per game average. Never in any of the seasons mentioned has Gonchar come close to that scoring average. He also never logged the 28 minutes of ice time that McCabe is logging this year. Also since McCabe has been a Maple Leaf he is a plus/minus or +66 and never had a negative year. Gonchar has had 3 negative years and been a minus player over the same time period.
