      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.

[Report] Shane Doan's agent said the Canucks are one of the teams.

Recommended Posts

I think it will be about who the bigger contender is. Vancouver right now is the bigger contender compared to Detroit who lost Rafalski, Stuart and Lidstrom in just the last 2 years and haven't replaced them. Vancouver has also been to the finals recently and a back to back president trophy winner with an ability to win the cup this year. I just don't see him going to Detroit as they aren't that great team anymore with the loss of Stuart and Lidstrom this year. Det and Van also play similar style of puck possession with Detroit using the left wing lock and Vancouver using a more aggressive forechecking style that fits Doan's style better.

he fills a major void the canucks need and would be worth the risk to overpay for. a 4 year $22 million offer should be sufficient to get him to sign with the canucks.

Found this tweet interesting by Jeff Angus. Did not know the Canucks wanted him for that long.

Doan in a Canucks uniform is intriguing, but he's the exact player that Detroit covets and you know Holland is going to be pursuing Doan intensely because they lost Lidstrom and failed to lure Suter to Hockeytown.

Plus, what number would Doan wear here - his number isn't available and that right there is likely the final deal-breaker :) .

numbers will change and he will have the one he wants.I would ask what he wants and give him it with an extra 50,000 signing bonus or something and make him feel welcome.Asks players he knows to call him to make him feel more welocme,like our Captain should be involved as that would show him respect.He is still awesome and we sure could use him to make us better.

4 years is out of the question. We'd be paying cap for an empty roster spot for at least the last two years.

that would be a risk the Canucks need to take... are you saying that there has never been a 39 year old that still can be effective in the NHL?...last time i checked Selanne was 42 years old and Mark Recchi (at over 40 years old) was an important piece to the Bruins' cup.

some team will be wiling to give Doan a 4 year deal and that will most likely the team he will sign with....lets hope its the Canucks.

How many +35's have you seen Gillis offer a multi year deal to?

I've seen maybe 1, and it was basically a given that he wouldn't take that attention grabbing two year deal. If we're close to landing him, maybe we add on a couple 100k to sweeten the deal. There's no chance Gillis ups the offer to a 4 year term. If the rumors are true and Vancouver is a desired destination, I'm guessing the hold-up is that Gillis won't do more than 2 years.
