I respectfully disagree.

Doan is exactly the top 6 kind of player this team needs and has lacked the last 2 years. Both Boston and LA made mince-meat out of our top 6.

Doan is a physical beast, a character guy who leaves it on teh ice and will defend his teammates to teh death. WHo do the Nucks have that comes close to that? The fact he has more than decent offensive ability is a huge bonus and why in today's market, he is worth offering Sedin-like money to.


He's had shoulder problems and he's getting old, he's reached 30 goals once in his career and has only hit 70points once in his career yet he is worth 6+ million... yea um no he's not.

He's hit both of those numbers more than once, and comes close consistently. But again, points are not the primary attraction with Doan. What he brings, we lack. It's a good fit at the right price. 6mil doesn't scare me if the term is right.

Sometimes I think the surest sign that intelligent life exists somewhere in the universe is that none of it has tried to contact us.

It bugs me when people pull out the gold medal for an example... Luongo only had to outplay Brodeur.

And your country of orgin that competed in Euro 2012 was ????


Spain.

The key difference is that Sopel can fill in for Seabrook and Campbell just fine. Bieksa, he is garbage so in that sense he is like the worst defenseman in the league.


When Cody (Hodgson) gets older, he might be better than Datsyuk.


Let's not push this guy (Kassian). He's still immature, and if he fails on the 2nd line it's because he isn't ready. Some guys really need years to develop, it's how well and how fast players adapt to the game. In my opinion, I'd rather have Horvat getting 2nd line minutes. He will start off on the 3rd line next season but I see him making the transition, being a great compliment to whoever plays his wings.

At this point, I don't see Kassian fitting in to any role other than a 3rd. If players like Kassian start getting 2nd line minutes then we just stay inconsistent as a team.

Did he actually go to dinner with Malholtra, or was that BS?

He must not have met with Gillis and company yet, because CDC would be all over that like a [insert your punchline here]

I wonder when we're meeting with him.

I know some of you don't find this guy credible, but he has been accurate with his information recently.


Hockeyy Insiderr@HockeyyInsiderr
Yesterday Doan visited the #NYRangers. He was VERY impressed with the conditions/facilities and chances of winning.



Hockeyy Insiderr@HockeyyInsiderr
Today Doan is in Philadelphia meeting with #Flyers management. Keeping option open but waiting for #Preds decision on Weber.


Hockeyy Insiderr@HockeyyInsiderr
Monday Doan will be visiting Pittsburgh. Has scheduled meeting with Shero and possibly Lemieux. Hearing #Pens might have Crosby present also


Hockeyy Insiderr@HockeyyInsiderr
For the rest of the week, Doan is also expected to meet with #Habsand #Sabres reps and visit Montreal and Buffalo. Then back to west coast.


Hockeyy Insiderr@HockeyyInsiderr
Western conference teams that Doan has on his list are #SJSharksand #Canucks (strong possibility for VAN am being told).


Hockeyy Insiderr@HockeyyInsiderr
Also don't exclude #RedWings and #Coyotes (if talks turn around) from Doan's consideration. They are on his list. Next tweet= EXACT list.


Hockeyy Insiderr@HockeyyInsiderr
Shane Doan's list of teams he is considering joining next year:#NYRangers #Flyers #Pens #Habs #Sabres #Coyotes #RedWings#Canucks #SJSharks

Hockeyy Insiderr@HockeyyInsiderr
This is it for Doan update. Again, very impressed with #NYRangersyesterday. No verbal agreement in place however. Still open to alloptions

While Kesler, who has had one healthy series in his career here, is worth $6M?!! If Kesler's stats continue, he will be retiring at 29.

Doan is tough and even at his age is a more physical and dominating force than Kesler or any other forward on this team.

Guy is an idiot. Worse than Eklund. He is an invalid source. Mods do your job bn start throwing warning points out at people for not reading the damn rules.

If Hockey Insiderr is right about Doan's impression of the NYR's facilities, I like the Canucks' chances. GMMG and Co. made a significant effort to improve facilities and dressing room environment. The are using some real neat technology which will hopefully be influential in swaying Doan's opinion.

OMG we could've had McKeown!

I think Virtanen was a terrible pick given that he's out for 6 months which will hinder his development. You don't pick someone at #6 under that circumstance, along with the fact that he was given a 3/5 IQ (aka he's dumb). 

God dammit Benning. WHY VIRTANEN? Terrible move.

Down by the River - Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young.

What's your problem? Maybe you should give him a chance before bashing him and I wouldn't tell the mods how to do their jobs lol, they're very capable.

I'll give you an example (FYI, just so you know, there are plenty more, go take a look)

Mark Fistric signs 1 year- 1.45M deal with #DallasStars and avoids arbitration.

I think Doan is playing hoping to get a good an offer as possible out of the Yotes. If there is a huge divide between the offers he might take off but I still bet he re signs.

I agree he is likely to re-sign but don't think he is trying to run up his value with the Yotes.

This guy is old-school, loyal and really does want to stay in Phoenix. I believe his teammates when they say he would take a discount to stay there. HIs decision will be based on the uncertainty of the ownership and future of the Yotes.

He is contacting teams he has an interest in should a deal in Phoenix not make sense. He is not leading these teams on to get a better deal but to explore his options. He has already said he will contact those teams he is interested in and not theother 10 that expressed interest so as not to lead anyone on.

Not sure the Nucks will get him but he will be a great acquisition wherever he lands. He is a character guy the likes of an Yzerman or Linden. Would love to see him here.

I disagree. I mean, obviously he wants to stay in Phoenix, but not while the future of the organization is uncertain. I think for him and his families sake, he wants to settle down somewhere now.

He's Way way more accurate than Eklund. He's recently called a lot of deals before they are confirmed by tsN.

You think mods go through every page looking for invalid sources?? Rules are you can't start a thread with an invalid source. 27 pages in who cares?? Skip over his post and quit being a little b!tch

Oh and by the way, where do u think dreger and others get their info from? Usually sources. Hockeyinsderr can't use different sources to find info?

Most people don't care where the info comes from as long as its true, people don't rip dreger and I bet he uses identical sources to get his info
