      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] Pittsburgh makes offer to Shane Doan

Recommended Posts

Idk if I'm supposed to post this as a new topic or in an existing thread. If I should've posted this in an existing thread then mods please inform me and lock.

Shelly Anderson of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports the Penguins have made a contract offer to UFA forward Shane Doan.

Anderson didn’t obtain either the terms or dollar amount being offered, but did say the longtime Phoenix Coyote has a “mutual interest” in Pittsburgh.

It’s not entirely surprising that Pittsburgh wants Doan. The Pens have been actively searching for a winger to play with Sidney Crosby and, after losing out on the Zach Parise sweepstakes, have discussed with a number of the “Plan B” free agents — including Washington’s Alex Semin.

The wildcard in Doan talks? What kind of money GM Ray Shero put on the table. The Penguins have just under $10 million in available cap space and have no glaring roster holes to fill, meaning they could make a pretty lucrative pitch to the 35-year-old.

That’s key, because a report out of Arizona last week said a mystery team from the Eastern Conference offered Doan a four-year, $30 million-plus deal.

Pittsburgh is already a dangerous team, Doan there would put them over the top. He would be great for Crosby. I hope he signs here although I still don't see him moving out the desert just yet.

Unfortunately, if the Coyotes sale is approved, his most likely decision will be returning to Phoenix. These are all Plan B options for him. He has waited this long for one purpose: to see whether the Coyotes are staying in the desert.

I like how people go on about what a classy guy Doan is, then in the very next breath they imply he's just in it for the money by saying he'll go to the highest bidder. If he cared just about money he would have left Phoenix July 1. Not every one is obsessed with getting the maximum amount of money..

Look at Hamhuis, Garrison, Burrows, even Kesler and the Sedins. Most of the guys on our team took a paycut, so I don't know why everyone assumes every single player is out for the big jack pot.

That Doan would receive multiple offers, many of them very lucrative even by NHL standards, should be of no surprise to anyone. An individual of his calibre, as a player, humanitarian, and person, should be highly coveted by every single team in the league. You've got to shake your head at a team like Pit who, if the reports are true, would initially pursue a guy like Semin over a guy like Doan.
