the asking price for doan is too much. Love to have him but way to much of a cap hit.

Ha! We're not getting

anything decent for Lu... The best we could possibly hope for is albatross for albatross (Luongo for Nash). Other than that, we're getting hosed...

And, not just for one or two reasons, we're getting hosed for just soooooo many:

1. Lu's been a prima donna since day one (remember all the hoops he used to make management jump through - well, I shouldn't say 'used to', he's still doing it to this day?).

2. Lu's treated management as bad as management treated Bure. Well, OK, maybe not quite that bad, but not good either. And, who has to make a massive gamble to acquire Lu?... Right, another team's management... They're like elephants, they don't forget.

3. If you were a coach or GM, would you want a player who asked out of a decade-long contract after three games on the bench??? Ever???

4. Lu is reportedly steering the trade towards one or two teams (who have nothing we want).

5. Lu never moved his family here. Despite signing a contract in the 2000's - that ran through the 2010's - and into the 2020's... Would you want a player who cared that much about your city?...

6. Would you want a player (signed for another decade) whose production declined dramatically and almost immediately after he signed that contract?...

7. That contract.

8. Oh, and that contract was clearly designed so Lu could cheat the rules (and not play the last few years, yet still get paid the big bucks). Would you want a player who is OK with cheating?...

9. Luongo made his trade request public - thereby ensuring we don't get fair value. Again, would you want a player who did that to his last team on your team???

10. And, it's worth repeating... This isn't a long, drawn out thing or something that's been brewing forever. Lu is pissed that A BETTER PLAYER got to start THREE GAMES ahead of him. Three. Freaking. Games. And, he can't stand playing on this team anymore... Would you want a player like that on your team???

And, remember...

If you pick this player up - you are on the hook for like fifty million dollars - AND - you have to give up one or more decent players in exchange...

Oh yeah, and is this player famous for being a choker?...

Too bad the fans of this team chase players out of town like its going out of style. The guy was considered a savior in his first 2-3 years and now he is an albatross and a choker. He is now considered to be a cancer like Messier while it was only last year where he did kind of help to bring us to the finals. Fans like you disgust me more than anything else, because you guys set a standard so high that not even the best player in the NHL could maintain. It will be the same thing with Schneider too, just watch. You guys will praise him in his first couple of years as a starter, then you will turn on him once he slips a little bit.

Im suprised to see some people here saying he's not worth the money when we've got over 5m invested in a 'faceoff specialist' and a figure skater plus 4m+ Ballard playing in the bottom pairing lol.

I think that every day this moves forward the less chance Doan heads back to Phoenix. Beyond Doan, his turning and going elsewhere will probably indicate the fate of Phoenix as a franchise. Remember, he's virtually dealing with the league right now. The League would have to ok any deal Phoenix handed Doan. With a League/ Players contract coming up there are all kinds of pitfalls for both sides when Doan's contract comes into play. It's one thing for an individual team to set precedent on contract amounts but another for a League owned team to set precedent.

Doan knows this and sits right in the middle it. With little movement on ownership in Phoenix it's unlikely he'll stay there.

I guess what confuses me is the fact that if he is really set on phoenix why not sign a 1 yr deal - no matter what happens the team will not move this season. Gives the team time to sort out the sale and he gets his wish to stay there at least one more year. Seems to me a player with major issues with the situation of his current club and looking at some stability for the remainder of his career.

Exactly, he loves Phoenix, but he wants to settle down somewhere now. If he signs a 1 year deal, and the team moves, suddenly he has to go through the same process again, and that's hard on his family.

“We’re still trying to decide which other visits he’s going to take,” Bross said. “We’re mulling that over right now.”Doan has had conversations with Jamison, but Bross said he hasn’t heard from Jamison and isn’t sure how recently the former San Jose Sharks executive reached out to Doan.“I’ve had contact with (General Manager) Don (Maloney), who is giving me reports from them,” Bross said. “I haven’t heard anything from them.”

Shane Doan's agent Terry Bross tells CKWX that "most likely" Shane will visit Vancouver.

I think the Canucks have an edge over other teams.

yeah I honestly feel the longer this is taking, almost the better. Because with each day that passes, it just shows that the ownership is not at all getting sorted out. It's to the point where Shane probably knows he has to make a decision, like he says in the video, he has to plan a family move and get settled etc, and each day the ownership doesn't settle I think he would get a little bit more impatient.

I obviously know nothing about the situation or Shane Doan personally, but from the type of character he seems to be, I would think being on a contender would be his number one priority. Hopefully he feels like he fits with Canucks as much as we feel he'll fit here.

And who knows what "most likely" means. He's probably pitching that to every interested team's media sources.

I think that if the situation doesn't get resolved in Phoenix, it'll be either VAN of SJS. Both are on the west but VAN obviously has a edge because it's more close to his hometown as well as we are one of the elite teams in the NHL right now.

On a side note.. Doan would a perfect fit here. A perfect blend of leadership and size - exactly what we are lacking.
