Sergei Gonchar is in need of a new home, and the Ottawa Senators will agree with this. After helping the Pittsburgh Penguins to a Stanley Cup, Gonchar signed a massive three-year, $16.5 million contract with the Sens last summer and is yet to really prove he's worth even half of that.

Making $5.5 million per season, Gonchar's production dropped significantly last year, going from 11 goals and 50 points in 62 games to seven goals and 27 points in 67 games (as well as a pretty despicable minus-15 rating).
