Trading Kennedy for Gonchar makes little sense for Pittsburgh for starters. If you were in fact a Penguin fan and knew the depth at forward, you would know what I mean. This is foolishness.
He did not mention TK or the need for forwards over dmen at all, just that despite age Gonchar is playing at a higher level then Despres is RIGHT NOW, not in the future. Whether true or not that was his point , and as a sens fan with season tickets , I can attest to Gonchar playing at a fairly high level and while maybe not as high as Depres would for sure help your depth , pp and has proven before great leadership abilities and locker room presence. The whole he would not be in your top 7 comment is hyperbole to try and prove a point.
