Then on the 8th we'll see a tweet from Bob McKenzie "Doan has signed with the Canucks 2 years 9M. 4.5 AAV." :P one can dream.

As much as I want him here he will stay with the Coyotes, they would be stupid to not keep him.

From Allan Muir of SI.com:
"Captain Shane Doan told potential suitors, including Phoenix GM Don Maloney, he wouldn't make any decisions until after July 10, by which point the viability of Greg Jamison's bid to own the Coyotes should be determined. No doubt Doan would like to stay in Phoenix, but the likelihood of the desert drama finally closing by that point is low. I think he's gone. He'd like to return home to Edmonton, or latch on with Vancouver, a legitimate contender in need of some dependable grit."

One day some of us will look back on the year and look at the chicago, and most of us will realize that it was a small bump in the road to the cup

Doan would be an absolutely fantastic addition to the Canucks. A gritty, hardworking, skilled competitor. Exactly what we need more of!

why does everyone want this guy?

Sure. He is Classy. But Doan isnt the same player anymore. He's 35...he isnt a solution.


We want YOUTH.

I'm sorry, but he is better suited for a team that needs a short term solution while it brings up its young guns.


Isn't this EXACTLY what we want?

Besides, he is big, good playmaker, smart, responsible, good scorer too. Veteran, experienced....

35 isn't even that old. What's wrong with you?
Hey CDC! Remember this!?

From AZ republic...

I pray he doesn't leave, but don't blame him if he does... My guess will be either Vancouver or Chicago...

Dark horse is Edmonton... Give him a chance to finish his career back in Alberta. Lead a young team...

Because he provides leadership, and a veteran presence to the room.
Plus at his age he still did the following last season:

9 points in 16 playoff games (including 5 goals including 2 game winners), +2, averaged over 20 minutes a game.
Regular Season: 50 points, -8 (ok not so hot) and 205 HITS!

I'd say even if he makes $5-7 million like Iginla, he'd be worth every penny.

For 2 years, heck yeah. 2nd line!!

I actually can't believe that you don't think Doan would improve this team, he has consistently been a 50 point player that plays gritty, and tough hockey. He might be the solution to bring the Canucks a cup.

Wow. I have always been a fan of Shane. Hes everything I admire in a hockey player, on and off the ice. I feel for him because I think he has been loyal to the franchise his whole adult life and if they cant get it done, I would be very excited to see him in a Canuck uniform.

He would be a great influence in the locker room and a terrific infusion on the second or third line.

I could definitely see him wearing an 'A' if he came to the Canucks this season. B)

"It's an opportunity, we don't look at it as a last chance... We look at it as an opportunity to do something great. We are going to take it period by period, shift by shift. You just have to be better than the guy across from you... Every guy in this locker room I can say believes we can do this." - Ryan Kesler

Can't see him in a Canucks uniform. We have plenty of forwards capable of playing in the top-6 in the Sedins, Kesler, Burrows, Booth, Higgins, Raymond and Hansen as well as Kassian and Jensen who may emerge soon.

Besides, we need centers now. It would be nice to be this stacked:

Sedin (35) - Sedin (15) - Doan (30)
Booth (25) - Kesler (25) - Higgins (20)
Burrows (20) - Lapierre (10) - Hansen (20)
Raymond (15) - Malhotra (5) - Kassian (10)

The twins would probably turn him into an instant 30 goal scorer, Burrows would drop down to the low 20's, but with Hansen getting better every season our 3rd line could easily pot 50 goals. That's around 230 goals from our forwards which is considered quite high from any team. Chip in another 30-40 from our defence and we're looking like an offensive juggernaut once again.

Classy? You all have very short memories. Doan is not a classy guy. Classy guys don't hurl around racist slurs on the ice, ever.

JLumme...nothing ever proven... classless is someone perpetuating rumours without any facts

Wonder if Bettman gave Doan a call right after he announced his intensions?
"Hey Shane, Gary here,
WTF are you doing? my dream is for the team to stay. Things are not looking good and if you jump ship it will fall apart even faster.
I'll speak with Don and get you whatever raise you need to stay in the desert!" "Pretty please"

I'm slowly warming up to the idea of Doan playing on our second line, but at a reasonable price. 4.5M per, max 2 years.

But in addition to the imminent Luongo trade and hopefully some cap relief there, here is to hoping Gillis would move Malhotra and his $2.5M somewhere else so we can make a few more adjustments.

Racist against.... the french??

That's like throwing white slurs around. Do you really think it hurt any feelings?

Besides... who DOESN'T like to razz the french?

If Lapierre or Burrows played on another team you'd bet I'd want Kesler making fun of their accents while asking them to surrender.

So its not racist if the group that you're slurring isn't popular?

Everyone is racist..to some degree..c'mon..who wouldn't want Doan? Who cares if he's classy or not, he's demonstrated that he's still consistent. He's a community guy and the Canucks like that. If we got capspace, might as well use it.

He's a good player, I'd want him on the team for sure. Just makes me cringe when people fawn all over how 'classy' the guy is, when its totally undeserved.

How many years did Doan travel to Euroland for Team Canada. Season after season he showed up and stood out. It would not surprise me that Van would be on his list. He could be on a team that brings the CUP back to Canada. What a way to wind up your career. No other Canadian city can offer that opportunity other than Ottawa. We all know that won't work because that city is infested with those Frenchies.
