I was listening to WIP late last night, and they mentioned several times that "canadian media is rampant with the Flyers having strong interest in Gonchar." Didn't mention any deal was about to happen, but they made it sound like something could be close. Personally, I think Toronto could be the front runner, but having a Gonchar on this team would immediately solidify a potential weakness. Not sure what Washington would want. Its been rumoured that they wanted Carlo C. and a 1st from Toronto and possibly more. Unless the Flyers were going to part with 1 of the 2 C prospects, they would certainly have to include Seidenberg and probably a future 1st, and that probably wouldn't be enough. Just passing this along.
why bother with gonchar when witt ($1.7 million/year) is less expensive and more suited to what the flyers need. screw the gonch, get witt it!
That's a good point. At this time last year, Flyer fans would have been going nuts over Gonchar but this year - with the power play rolling along - most people don't feel as if the Flyers need Gonchar.
Personally, I think he'd be expensive and would rather have Witt.
But actually, I hear ya. Everyone else can just better your offer and weasel their way in there. Looks like that's what happened with the Toronto and Colordo. Just gald to see the Leafs miss out on another guy. I would love to see them get forced into overpaying for Leetch,
Ok i was wrong, so sue me. Word on the street is Witt will cost more then Gonchar did for financial reasons. I don't know if another trade is what we need. We have completely changed the complexion of this team, and more tinkering can prove to be threatening to our chances.
