Not neccesarily. It also helps to reduce the cap hit anyway if the player is not intending to play those years. If Doan will only play 3 more years than a 8,8,5,3,1 will still pay him 21 mil (3 years at $7 mil avg) where as the cap hit is only $5 mil. If Doan still feels like playing in those last years he will probably be making what he's worth by then.

It's not cap relief if you end up paying 5 mill in cap space for a guy who doesn't dress for your team. It's borrowing against your future. It wouldn't fit the Canucks model of staying competitive every year.

no Gillis has learned from his mistakes a player that old will only accept a 1 year 10 mill contract.

It was known that Sundin didn't want a multi year deal. It was an attention grabber, and it served it's purpose.

Rules state you can't start a new thread with what's considered an invalid source. It says nothing about posting one in a thread that's already been started.

Why don't you read the board rules before you make yourself look stupid. Pinned thread:
http://forum.canucks...nvalid-sources/
Who cares?  Maybe the mods care! Maybe those of us on this forum that don't want to see these boards get clogged up by the likes of people like you who don't give a fat rats a$$ and continue posting garbage from this INVALID source care.

"These are considered invalid sources, therefore please don't use them as 'sources'. Threads will be locked if the source is one of these."

I interpret this as you can't start a thread with an invalid source. why would mods delete a thread started with source from say Bob McKenzie and lock it if I posted a HockeyyInsiderr tweet?

Does anyone actually know what rumour actually means? jeez. A RUMOUR of any kind can really be started by anyone.

Yes, but the source of the rumour determines whether it has any substance to it.

Any 13 year old with nothing better to do can start a rumour on the internet, and most of us are not interested in reading rumours started by one.

Imagine what this board would be like if that were allowed. Samjam would be posting threads every minute with new rumours from his "sources."

Pfft... let them handicap themselves long term then. At this rate I almost wouldn't mind seeing Doan sign elsewhere with these ridiculous terms.

With the path for the PHX ownership to be solidified, being paved recently, I don't see much likelihood of Doan signing anywhere else. I see a 4 year deal worth $4-$5 million keeping Doan in PHX.

It would have been great to have him here...but I think it was, like the acquisition of almost any prized UFA by Canuck fans, a pleasant dream and distraction in what seems like an infinitely long off-season.

So the Coyotes let Whitney walk and replaced him with a smaller over the hill guy. And then signed David Moss...

How exactly does Doan think he has a chance at winning thee cup there?

Smith couldn't have been much better, and that wasn't enough. Don't waste away your final years in Phoenix!

I don't care as much for the long term since its all about winning a cup for this franchise. If we win a cup with Doan making 6 mill, its well worth it.
I rather lose with the Canucks, than win with any other team

This is OUR year

GO CANUCKS GOOOOOO!!!!!!!

I think the reports are about wanting to stay with his family being the primary reason for not really wanting to go elsewhere. But I agree, they had a shot last year, and they won't get another one with the team this year....so why not, as a hockey player go somewhere for a couple of years and try to win what you've been playing the game to win essentially your whole life up to this point? I respect his loyalty to the team and franchise, but he doesn't owe them anything anymore....he's done everything he can to sell the game, tickets, merchandise, etc there......, i'd have to ask Doan, what about your loyalty to one's own dream to attain the highest achievement in hockey?

You've got to respect his selflessness though. If he cares that much about his team, it shows what a great guy he is.

Yea, at a certain point a player has to do what's best for themselves. He's done all he can for that franchise, but the bottom line is it's still gonna fail. They're just delaying the inevitable.

Sometimes a player only gets one shot at a cup in their careers, and this could be his. I understand him wanting to do what's best for his family, but I'm sure they would understand him wanting to go somewhere else in order to have a good chance at a cup.

Plus his number will get retired either way, I think that's pretty obvious. But the thing is, the Coyotes probably won't even be there by the time that happens, so does it really mean anything at this point?
