Sucks to see him go, but best of luck to him and lets hope Shero can find a replacement.

Ottawa has been looking for an Elite offensive powerplay quarterback who can still play defence for years - basically since the strange and sudden decline of Wade Redden.

If Gonchar is healthy, he’ll fit the bill - and hopefully will also serve as a mentor for guys like Erik Karlsson and the recently acquired David Rundblad.

Wouldn’t be surprised if Filip Kuba or Chris Campoli are shopped actively now.
