Default Re: Pens Tidbits

Latest on Gonchar is that he has rejected 2 and 3 year deals, and has counted with 3 year, $15 million and 4 year, $18.25 million offers. So obviously he's willing to take a little less money in exchange for an extra year. Talks have apparently been put off until the end of the season, which means there is a strong possibility that he will end up leaving for another team. I understand both sides here - Gonchar wants either more money or more term, and the Pens just do not want to risk him retiring before his contract ends and then being on the hook for his cap hit if they give him a 4 year contract. Something's got to give here if Gonchar is going to be retained.
