None of them bring what Gonchar could bring in a short season and we have the cap room. I'm not sure I would even want him back next year unless it was a one year contract at a greatly reduced price. He's exactly the type of rental player you want.
And his cap hit will only be 2.75M if we play 40games, less if dealt later in the season.
