Gonchar has been our favorite player ever since he put on the Pens sweater for Craig Patrick.
And we started loving him even more when people jobbed him because they were bored.
As frightening as the Pens' cap situation would be if Gonchar returns,
the blue-line situation may be even more frightening without him as the anchor.
If you think Alex Goligoski is ready to quarterback the top PP unit, more power to you.
Throughout his entire career, fans have had to take the good with the bad when it comes to Gonch.
The good heavily outweighs the bad.
For the rest of the week, we will be paying our last respects to Gonch.
We will dearly miss this son of a bitch.
