I find the opposite; his shot - unlike Cowen's - does not take ages to unload. And unlike options like Phillips' and Kuba's it actually has some zip to it.

EDIT - I may be in the minority but I have liked Gonchar for his entire time here. Yes, he is overpaid. But if you want to attract free agents to a small market that is going to be the reality. As long as you don't hand out contracts that are downright awful, I don't mind overpaying a little bit to fill a need that cannot be addressed from within. Because he isn't physical I feel he becomes underrated defensively, too, as many mistakenly equate physical play with good defense.
