Silver Nuggets: Reaction to Gonchar signing

Here's a Friday edition of Silver Nuggets:

  • Bob McKenzie feels the Senators did a great job of stepping outside the box to get the guy they needed to get. (TSN)
  • Scott Cullen looks at Gonchar's numbers, and they are extremely impressive: "Gonchar's .80 points per game since the lockout ranks a close second to Nicklas Lidstrom (.81) among NHL defencemen." (TSN)
  • User Andrew J feels that Gonchar was a better signing than either Volchenkov or Z. Michalek would have been. (FanPosts)
  • Jeremy Milks explains why he loves the Gonchar signing, but why Volchenkov signing in New Jersey leaves him with more questions than answers. (Black Aces)
  • Nichols looks at why the Gonchar signing is a reasonable value for a player with such consistency. (6th Sens)
  • Duff is thrilled with the signing of Gonchar. (Another Ottawa Senators Blog)
  • Anton Volchenkov talks about why he signed with the New Jersey Devils (Puck Daddy)
  • Hockey Or Die likes the Gonchar signing for, um, Pittsburgh. (Hockey Or Die)
