At 39 years old and heading into free agency, the future of Sergei Gonchar's career is pretty cloudy. Before the season began there were some suggestions that Gonchar would head back to Pittsburgh. It was also fair to wonder if he might simply retire, there aren't a ton of guys playing into their 40s in the NHL. Add in the fact that he had a salary cap hit of $5.5 million last season and the questions abound.
