Dave Shoalts of the Globe says the Leafs are going hard after a defenseman. It just wont be Sergei Gonchar:
The problem with Gonchar is that he has a huge contract, one with four-and-a-half years left at $5-million per year (all figures U.S.). The other is that he is having a terrible season, just like the Penguins.
...One scout who has watched him said Gonchar has gone from playing little defence to no defence at all. “He refuses to go back and get the puck,” the scout said. “You have to get the puck first before you can go on offence.”Via Spector's Trade Rumours
