Don't get me wrong I love what Gonchar brings to the table but if our current block of young puck moving defenceman can do the job why carry the $5 million price tag of Gonchar when that salary can be used to fill a hole elsewhere.
I think Eaton will be retained for that option next summer.
I don't think that it is impossible to hear Gonchar's name come up in rumors in the off season. He is a bargain at $5MM. But with Whitney/Letang/Goligoski they should have enough offense from the blueline next year.
Maybe Gonchar is the piece needed to get Sid his winger?
Moving Gonchar is a very tough move to make. I'll let Ray Ray handle that one
