I don't know exactly what you'd have to pay Gonchar to buy him out but I would assume it would be around 3mil. Then you have to spend another 1-3mil to bring in a new free agent who does not know your system and you possibly wind up paying more for less. In my opinion it makes no sense no buy out any of the contracts on Ottawa's roster.
Completely agree.

So is Latendresse... Mind you, I think that if we want him back, he's a good bet to resign here, season or no season. Its either here or Montreal.
