Gonchar Out for a Month…

Sergie Gonchar, one of the most sought after defenseman, will be out for a month at least. He suffered a second-degree shoulder ligament tear.

The 29-year old Russian has been the center of trade talk for the past month. Many teams are looking to add a solid defenseman, and there’s non-better than the offensive minded Gonchar.

The Avs, Leafs, and Flyers are all very interested in Gonchar.

“”I just have to take it easy and wait until it gets better,” Gonchar, 29, told the Washington Post. “There is nothing we can do for it, no treatment, nothing.”

“I just have to rest it and hopefully I can come back in three or four weeks.” “(Copied from www.canoe.ca)

Gonchar is making $3.65 million this year, and is eligible for arbitration at the end of the year. He leads defensemen in scoring.

    Maybe he’d come cheaper now.

    The question now becomes do the Caps hold onto him until the deadline and charge a premium, or do they get rid of him now. Who is going to trade anything of value for an injured d-man. I don’t see Clarkie pulling the trigger until Gonchar comes back – if at all.

    I am trying to figure out why the Flyers are so interested in him – other than the obvious fact that he is a top tier d-man. They will be stacked at D when the injuries heal. Unless Desjardins is worse off than people think.

    Maybe now is the time for the Leafs to make a splash and get Gonchar – possibly even cheap.

    Hey, Leaf fans, doesn’t a guy have to pass a physical before you can try to acquire him?

    Besides, not everyone wants to play in Toronto.

    Leonsis probably hit him after the game……

    Desjardins contract is up again this year, with the CBA looming Clarke may opt for a younger, yet more expensive d-man than staying with Eric whose days are number. However, on a personal note, I’d argue that Desjardins career was revieved when Hitch came to town, and would like to see him stay, just at a smaller price tag.
