Ridiculous.
Did somebody strike a nerve? Nobody is trying to discredit Gonchar, but most people know he didn't strap that team on his back and carry them to victory in 2009.

Also, Letang at his best is close to what Gonchar was in 2009. He's not nearly as good offensively, but he is much better in the defensive zone.
