If Lu was staying he could probably call Doan and convince him to come here.

They are best buddies.

I dont 100% buy into the fact that he wants 7.5 million a year. There were reports of Garrisons price being too high, the day of free agent frenzy. Where did he end up? Let the man talk for himself. We will see.

Hmm, Doan at $7.5 million per...

FORWARDS

Daniel Sedin ($6.100m) / Henrik Sedin ($6.100m) / Alexandre Burrows ($2.000m)

David Booth ($4.250m) / Ryan Kesler ($5.000m) / Jannik Hansen ($1.350m)

Mason Raymond ($2.275m) / Manny Malhotra ($2.500m) / Zack Kassian ($0.870m)

Chris Higgins ($1.900m) / Maxim Lapierre ($1.000m) / Dale Weise ($0.615m)

Aaron Volpatti ($0.600m) / Andrew Ebbett ($0.600m) / Shane Doan ($7.500m)

DEFENSEMEN

Kevin Bieksa ($4.600m) / Jason Garrison ($4.600m)

Dan Hamhuis ($4.500m) / Keith Ballard ($4.200m)

Alexander Edler ($3.250m) / Andrew Alberts ($1.225m)

Chris Tanev ($0.900m) /

GOALTENDERS

Roberto Luongo ($5.333m)

Cory Schneider ($4.000m)

------

CAPGEEK.COM TOTALS (follow @capgeek on Twitter)

(these totals are compiled without the bonus cushion)

SALARY CAP: $70,200,000; CAP PAYROLL: $75,268,333; BONUSES: $0

CAP SPACE (24-man roster):- $5,068,333

(No, I didn't set pairings or lines)

Doan in at that price would mean that Luongo would have to be traded sooner rather than waiting until sometime around X-Mas. Gillis would also have to move some pieces in order to hold on to guys like Edler (et al) who have contracts coming due for next season.

The Doan dream would be done.

Im never one to reply or post in fact this may be my second post of all time Im not entirely sure but you can all take this with a grain of salt. Today is the Kamloops Blazers Alumni Golf Tournament and ofcourse Shane Doan is attending. This is obviously not ground breaking news. The interesting tidbit is that Mike Gillis is partaking in the tournament and supposedly as a guest of Shane Doans. Again read into it what you like. It may mean nothing at all or could be something to look forward to. Just a little something to add to the discussion.

Can you front load a contact or will it still count towards the cap? I always get confused with this.

Doans looking for the contract that will take him into retirement, who in their right mind wouldn't want to cash in?

Would you take 5 M per year to play on the Canucks? Or take 7.5 M per to play on a different stanley cup contender? The answer is obvious.

People who think he will take a pay cut to play on a good team are dreaming, you know there are good teams out there offering close to 7 M per year over 4 years.

7.5 for Doan?!? And I thought Semin was an overpayment.

(Don't get me wrong, Semin still is)

I don't understand the bonus' people are getting. Even if you have a 1 mill salary and a bonus of 13mill. Isn't the cap hit still 13? Any help? Is it just to give the player money up front?

If an NHL team wants a shot at landing Shane Doan, it's going to be quite costly.

A source told Globe and Mail hockey columnist David Shoalts on Friday that the unrestricted free agent forward is looking for a four-year, $30 million contract if he leave the Phoenix Coyotes - the only franchise he's ever played for.

Doan is coming off a five-year, $22.75 million contract with an average annual value of $4.55 million.

Doan, who hit the market on July 1, already visited with the New York Rangers and the Philadelphia Flyers last week while taking part in collective bargaining talks with the NHL and NHL Players' Association.

The 35-year-old forward has maintained that his first priority is to stay with the Coyotes and is keeping a close eye on whether prospective buyer Greg Jamison will be able to close his deal to keep the team in Arizona. According to reports, Doan and Jamison met Friday to discuss the possibility of progress being made towards a sale.

In 1,119 career NHL games - all with Winnipeg/Phoenix, Doan has scored 296 goals and 738 points.

1 year $8-10M. Sundin style.

Doan gets a big payday. Canucks are only on the hook for 1 year. What else are the Canucks going to spend the cap on.

Shane Doan could very easily be following in Mark Messier's footsteps if he were to sign in Vancouver. Messier capitalized on the free agent market in 1997 at thirty-six years of age. The latter signed a three-year deal and failed to deliver based on his salary. It is highly unlikely Doan would ever play like a $7.5 million player at his age, and his contract would only hinder this team in a couple years.

I don't get how people don't think we can get Doan as kesler is'nt going to be on the books,we have 3 mill to get players and trading Luo will get it done!MG loves players like Doan and Doan himself knows how good of a team we have.Doan wants a cup and so do we so we have to be in his top 2 teams to sign with the other is the Coyoties.We might have to make a couple other trades to make it happen like Raymond and Ballard or whomever but we can go 10% over the cap till season starts which again makes it possible!Leadership is hard to fin and Doan is a grade A leader making him worth what he wants on a great team.

Doan just priced himself out of Vancouver if this report is accurate. I would still take Doan @ this price, but not at that term. I think Gillis moves on, we may see a Luongo trade sooner rather than later now with the return being a T6 forward and bottom 6 grit.
