Too much money and age factor, Reminds me of Kovalev from last year.
We also have pretty much all offensive d now and not many, defensive ones which scares me with our goaltending being a question mark. don't get me wrong i like what gonchar brings but what if he gets injured like hes had problems with recently. I almost would've rather had resigned volchenkov or michalek and also picked up Kurtis Foster for the power play, that way we would still have a defensive d man. Foster picked up over 40 pts last year which isnt as good as gonchar but hes only making 1.8 and if you look at volchenkov and michalek they are making 4 and 4.25 mil respectively and all three players are younger. Personally considering this would have costed us pretty much the same i would have rather done this. This is just my opinion, what do you guys think?
