Like any other offensive defenseman with defensiveissue, Gonchar would ideally be paired with defenseman who could cover for his weaknesses. We feel that Bob Goldham, not only covers for his weaknesses, but is a very good 2nd pairing defenseman. Goldham would rank about #90 on that same list, and that means he is a passable #3.
Would you play Phil Housley on second pairing at even strength?
