He is falling out of favor in Phoenix, can be had for cheap. To be honest, not sure if he would work out here. I would take a flier on him, but not at the expense of a high pick and prospect.
I would say nothing more than a 5th or a B prospect.
Edit: Found recent take on him, including his coach's comment.
No. #3 – Maxim Goncharov
Ht. 6-3 Wt. 216
Date of Birth: 6-15-1989 (Age 24)
Hometown: Moscow, Russia
Last Team: Portland Pirates (AHL)
Bio: Goncharov is an offensive defenseman at a transitional point of his career. He’s entering his third season of his entry-level contract with the Phoenix Coyotes, trying to make the push to the National Hockey League. The Moscow, Russia native is looking to rebound from a poor season last year, scoring only four points (1g, 3a) in 45 games with the Pirates. His career-best season was in 2010-’11 with the Coyotes’ previous affiliate, San Antonio Rampage, where he scored 15 points in 61 games.
Coaches’ Comments: “Goncharov is a big, strong player. There is nobody on the team that probably has the skill set that he has, strength, can shoot the puck a ton. What we need from him is a simpler game. He should be able to produce for us offensively this season, but we need him to play a simpler, more effective game.”
