There are reports all over the internet and radio this morning that the Penguins have traded Sergei Gonchar’s negotiating rights to the San Jose Sharks. This would give the Sharks exclusive rights to negotiate with Gonchar up until July 1st. This would also mean that Ray Shero and Gonchar’s negotiations have hit an impass.

The guys (and I mean ALL of them) stopped into Excuses Bar & Grill (Hockey Central) on Pittsburgh’s beautiful Southside last Friday night for some fun!
