Maybe not all-star form when he was on the Penguins, but then again he wasn't working with Malkin, Crosby, Staal, Letang, etc. Personally, I think the Pens pay a 2nd Round Pick at the trade deadline, which will probably be a late 2nd.
And that would be a fair price. Gonchar won't (IMO) get a Depres, or a Morrow, or any of the big 4. Dumoulin is the only "Big" guy I can see, he fits the bill as a late second prospect the Pens can afford to lose. (Not saying Dumoulin hasn't raised his stock since being drafted)
