      Forum-specific Rules   07/11/2017

      These are board specific rules for the Trades and Rumors forum designed to provide organization and a better experience for everyone. Please review these rules before posting new threads. 
        THREAD ETIQUETTE   1. Please search for an existing thread before posting. This forum can be very fast moving, so it's understandable if redundant threads are inadvertently posted. In such a case, please use the report feature to request removal of redundant threads.    2. Provide a clearly identifiable topic title so that users can readily understand the content. The title should include any and all teams involved, as well as player names or other personnel involved as appropriate.   3. All trades, signings, rumors and other news MUST include a linkable source. Simply posting the name of the source is not enough. Effort should also be made to copy and paste the full article, or at the very least the relevant portion of text from the source to the first post of the thread. Moderators may remove low-quality threads in favour of high-quality threads. 

      Affixed to the front of your title should be a label that identifies the type of transaction that is taking place. For all trades use [TRADE]. For all signings use [SIGNING]. For all waiver-wire transactions use [WAIVERS]. For all rumours use [RUMOUR].
      For articles or news items that don't fit into the above categories, affix an appropriate label of your choice such as [NEWS], [ARTICLE] or [MISC].   4. When the status of a thread changes a new thread can be created. The new thread should reflect the change and help focus the discussion on current events. e.g. Someone may create a new thread when a rumor becomes a trades. The old thread will be locked by the moderating team.    5. Do not misrepresent the contents of your thread or post false trades or rumors. Trolling will result in a permanent suspension. 

      SOURCES   The following source types are considered INVALID. Any links to posts or threads on other message boards Any links to personal blogs Any news heard on the radio that does not have a link to an audio vault or podcast Any news seen on television that does not have a link to online video Any news spread by word of mouth
      Additionally, certain sources may be be blacklisted due to poor credentials, clear traffic-mongering etc. Blacklisted sources will be posted here. 
      Thank you for your co-operation and please PM the Administrator or Moderators if you have any questions, concerns or suggestions regarding this forum.

We won't get him. MG wouldn't even offer Salo a 3 year deal and he was basically a Canuck forever.

Some idiot in the east will offer him 5-6 million per year for 4 years a la Ryan Smyth. This is Doan's last contract and he has to cash in.

He won't base his decision on whether he wants to win a cup or not. If that was truely important to him he would have left Phoenix long ago.

The Canucks may have an ace up their sleeve. At least, they have a pretty good in. Laurence Gilman, the Canucks assistant general manager, has a personal relationship with Doan established during his 13 years with the Phoenix Coyotes/Winnipeg Jets organization.

"I've known Shane since he was 19 years old and I have a lot of respect for him," Gilman said. "We've definitely stayed in touch over the years."

Interesting little tidbit. That actually makes me think we have a good chance.

In my opinion, if we were to sign Doan, we would need to make a trade first to open up cap space. Say we sign Doan to a deal worth $5 million; that would put us over the salary cap. Assuming a trade involving Luongo, it would be hard to get a great return as we would need to dump salary before the start of the season. This would seemingly give prospective teams leverage in trade negotiations, so we would not receive the best possible return.

According to CapGeek.com, the Canucks currently have $3,046,667 to spend until they hit the cap limit.

MG will make it work. It's not our job as fans to concern our selves with CAP...

Might be an ignorant post, but won't we have too many forwards?

Sedins - Burrows

X- Kesler - X

Higgins - X - Hansen

Volpatti- Lapierre - Pinizzotto

Raymond, Booth, Malholtra, Kassian, and Doan competing for the top 9?

How will we be able to give Kassian to develop if he's outside the top 9 role.

Ever since I heard about him possibly not re-signing with PHX, I've had a gut feeling he would end up here. I really believe this will happen.

Good, if he doesn't stay in Phoenix then I want him here. Hes exactly the type of player we needs that brings size, leadership, character, scoring and physical play to the team. :)

I think GoNucks74 makes a very valid point.

According to CapGeeks, the Canucks have $3M of cap space.

If they sign Doan for $5M per year, they are over the cap by $2M. Sure Luongo goes, but there will be players coming back in that deal so that likely won't free up that much cap room.

Kesler goes on LTIR, but he's coming back at some point (at a pro-rated amount). If he misses half the season he's still a cap hit of $2.5M (versus $5M for the entire year).

All of this and we still don't have a back up goalie on the roster and Burrows is badly underpaid ($2M per) and his contract is up after this year.

This is part of the reason I'm a believer they just trade Luo for a few draft picks as freeing up the cap space he's occupying (so we can sign a guy like Doan) is just as valuable as trading for someone of value.

Depending on the amount of money we spend on our players, we may not be able to sign another. I personally think about things in terms of cap space because it is such an important part of the game, it factors in trading and signing players. We wouldn't really want to see MG spend 7mil+ on a player worth less, no?

^ Keep it civil folks. No need to resort to personal attacks/ad hominems.

I'd definitely love to have Doan if the price is right. The number of teams on his short list is likely in the single digits, so if Phx is out, we've got a decent chance of landing him.

That said, if we don't we're fine. We can always go with the trade route and there are still a couple of decent free agents.
