Garrioch: Gonchar to Penguins

http://www.ottawasun.com/2012/12/22/...sergei-gonchar

This rumour actually makes a lot of sense. And Pittsburgh has a surplus of good defense prospects.

Could the Sens somehow get Harrington or Despres, even if they added to the package (and what would they add)?

The one thing we truly lack in prospects is a top-end defensive defenseman. Cowen isn't a prospect anymore. Boro plays hard and with heart, but he looks more like a Lance Pitlick type 4-6 d-man, and is almost too small for the game he plays.

You get a gold star for a Lance Pitlick reference.

I don't see why the Pens would need another big contract on D with the influx of youth they're ready to recieve at that position.

Definitely see the Pens wanting Gonchar, can't really see the return being a heck of a lot. If the Pens hadn't signed Vokoun, I'd easily drop Bishop in a deal.

He's a FA after this year, if they can fit him under the cap for this season I don't see why they wouldn't. A team like Pittsburgh hoping for a long run isn't going to want to rely on young, green guys.

If a season happens, we need him to make the playoffs, and obviously if we are in the hunt, we aren't letting him go. If we are sellers, then Gonchar to highest bidder, the Penguins or not.

Would have liked Michalek but it's a little late for that.

Despres if we add something.

More likely a 2nd rounder straight up for Go char.

It should also help the Senators give a ton of ice time to some prospects and could improve our draft position if a season is played

What will the D look like if Gonchar is also out?

Methot- Karlsson
Philips- Benoit
Weircioch- Lundin

Deal just doesn;t make sense to me.

1. With Cowen done, we already have some serious questions on the backend and to move a top 4 would be a head scratcher.

2. Gonchar didn't sign in Pitts because Shero wouldn't give him that 3rd year on the contract but now Shero wants him? Huh?

3. Pitts has a lot of guys on the backend capable of stepping in next season, no reason to add Gonchar imo.

2. Gonchar didn't sign in Pitts because Shero wouldn't give him that 3rd year on the contract but now Shero wants him? Huh? ( It was because he had questions about his ability on the 3rd year but hes coming off a 30 point season and putting up points in the KHL, and looks like a shoe in for the olympics)

3. Pitts has a lot of guys on the backend capable of stepping in next season, no reason to add Gonchar imo. (Thats Pitts problem, they don't have a leader and a vet on the backened)

How about a 1st rounder straight up? With how deep 2013 is I think I would do it.

Honestly, I'd trade Gonchar come trade deadline. I don't expect this team to be more than a bubble team (like last year), and adding some more youth couldn't hurt.

Pens fan here.

IF this rumor is true, I don't think the Penguins will offer much value for a 38/39 year old D who becomes a free agent next summer.

If Sergei Gonchar wants to return to Pittsburgh, he has the opportunity when his contract expires, the Penguins do have depth on D but they could use a good, veteran team guy who has been a key player here for 5 years. Also help teach/mentor some of the younger D prospects.

Some of you say trade him, some of you say don't because of Cowen.

I don't see the Penguins trading any of their D prospects for Gonchar, even in a package deal.

And if the response to that is "fine, we'll keep him" or "then we trade him to a team who will offer more" then that's fine. Like I said, if Gonchar wanrs to return to the Penguins, if the Sens don't like what the Penguins have to offer, he can do so in the Summer.

Do you guys even expect a season? With these negotiations, I'm surprised they didn't cancel the season yet.

Do Leafs fan stop talking about the playoffs until they are mathematically eliminated?

Thanks for the input. He was great for us last season and we'll have a hard time replacing his offensive game.
