Don't get your hopes up fellas, this may end up in a cry fest again, like what happened when Schultz broke your hearts.

The only way to be disappointed is to expect something, so don't expect anything.

I've tried telling my wife this.

Well it does rain a lot.
Especially compared to Phoenix.


They should be too busy worrying about fitness tests/practices/games/interviews than weather that has little to no effect on their lives.

2 years, 16 million. get him short term, at the price other teams want him for 4 years.

that's how you get shayne doan (plus it's better for us - just clear some cap space -- cough --)

Don't lowball him Gillis.

If you're willing to offer Sundin 10 mil a season, surely Doan can get 5-5.5 mil a season.

You should give your resume to Aquilini. Why would you add on another bad contract?

We can exceed the cap by 10% during the off-season. If everything's settled before the season opener, then all's good.

2 Years, 6 million/per in my opinion is perfect.

We'll be over the cap by a few % points, until we trade Luongo and free up another 5.3 million.

Id go 4 year, 20 million

8 - 8 - 3 - 1

pricey, but imo this is a player that could fill a huge void and help put the nux over the top.

spend what you have to, and give the guy what he wants, a Stanley Cup.

3yr/12m

Would even throw another yr on to lower the cap hit. Doan is the type of player who will be useful even in his final year.

People that think hes going to be had at 3 million a year havent been paying attention to what other players even older than him are getting... He's likley going to cost an average of 5 a year, but will also contain more term than a paltry 2 years,, which is why you fromt load the deal, so he can feel free to retire with the money and you save the cap hit.

its overpaying, like every team does in the FA period. Having said that, I believe Doan will really fit perfectly with this team, and make Vancouver very strong contenders, so its a move IMO worth making.

Shane Doan 'absolutely' could be a Canuck


Luke Fox | July 10, 2012, 9:46 am
Twitter @lukefoxjukebox
Could one of the NHL’s most coveted unrestricted free agents still available make a return to Canada?
“There is a possibility, absolutely,” Shane Doan’s agent, Terry Bross, told Vancouver’s News 1130 Monday, that his client could become a Vancouver Canuck.
Although there is no guarantee that he’ll leave the desert, the 35-year-old captain of the Phoenix Coyotes is testing the free-agent waters in light of the franchise’s financial uncertainty.
Among other teams, Doan has spoken with Canucks assistant general manager Laurence Gilman about the possibility of the veteran signing with Vancouver.
“He has some relationships in the front office there. I believe the assistant GM was the one that signed Shane with the Winnipeg Jets,” Bross said. “Shane has spoken with them, I’ve spoken with them, and there’s mutual interest.”
Prior to joining the Canucks in 2008, Gilman worked for 13 years in the Coyotes organization.

Bross tells CKWX that the #Canucks called early for Doan and he and his client have held pleasent talks with the #Canucks.
9 Jul 12

“I have spoken to Shane Doan on behalf of our organization a couple of times,” Gilman confirmed to the Vancouver Sun on Monday. “I spoke with him on July 1 to express our interest in bringing him to Vancouver and subsequently followed up with Shane last night. I know from my experience in Phoenix that he has been interested in Vancouver in the past. He's a western Canadian guy whose wife is from Kamloops. So I think there is interest there. I had productive discussions with both Shane and his agent.”
Before the Canucks starts sewing the D on the back of fresh jersey, however, it should be noted that there is plenty of interest in Doan. A reported 12 teams have expressed a desire to add the winner of the 2012 Mark Messier Leadership Award to their club. The Pittsburgh Penguins and Detroit Red Wings are just two other clubs confirmed to have had discussions with Doan.
“When you combine his physical play, the play on the ice, the leadership, and all the intangible qualities, it’s pretty easy to see why so many teams would be willing to bring him into their organization,” Bross said.
Doan registered his 12th 20-goal season in 2011-12 and helped lead the Coyotes to the Western Conference final for the first time. His previous contract carried a $4.55 million cap hit.

After talking to his agent at length - I feel the #Canucks would make Shane Doan's shortlist of 2-3 teams.
9 Jul 12

“Shane is a sought-after commodity, and there are a number of teams who would be interested in adding him to their roster,” Gilman told the Sun. “So we'll see what happens.”
