Probably around March.

Best deadline pickup in the NHL.

Ryan Whitney was on NHL Live yesterday and said Gonchar was hoping to be back by the end of February, and added that he's been taking a few shots here and there and has been doing push-ups.

That's at least a month ahead of the initial prognosis.

Just don't let John LeClaire near Gonch. Remember, he tried taking Malkin out in the preseason a few years back!!! :shock:

If Gonchar is effective before the 09-10 season, it will be a miracle.

Agreed. Do folks really expect him to return in peak form? As good as he is that's a lot to ask.

Regardless of whether he's in top form or not, he'll still be an upgrade over someone in the top 6 currently, and he'll bring a lot of leadership.

I don't know. It will take a while for him to get back into form if he comes back.
