I'd say no, but if it's one last who-ra then maybe on the cheap.
And that is an issue because...

Seriously people, it isn't like he is 50 or something. He is still able to play. I'd be fine with him getting 15 minutes or so a game and being the PP specialist. But people saying that we shouldn't get him because he is old need a reality check. He is a fantastic offensive D with a powerful shot. He is old, but he is still able to play. Just because a player is 38 doesn't mean that we shouldn't get him. He is still able to produce 35-40 points on the back end, which can't hurt at all.

And if you think we could get Gonch back for nothing, you need to stop drinking. He is still a PP QB that could be in the top-4 of some teams. I think it would take at least a 2nd to get him. Maybe Strait and a 3rd, something like that. He isn't in the same situation as Kovalev or Guerin. In both situations, the teams were way out of any postseason positions and were under-performing on their respective teams. Gonchar just had a rebound year, and with Cowen out for an extended time, they will need him. They won't sell him cheap.

Seriously people, it's not that hard.
