I was woundering the same thing. If someone says something like that then they should give a source.

If I had to go 2 years term, I'd drop to a 2 year 5.5 deal, 2.75 cap hit. Still manageable and not that bad if he retires at years end


O ya that is going to get it done!

Why not sign him to a 100 year contract at 450,000 front loaded of course! Doan ain't signing for 2.75 million dumbass

Do you guys think Doan might sign here for Sedin money?

So 4 years @ $24,400,000?

In my eyes drouin is overrated he can score in the qmjhl but did nothing in last two gold medal games that canada lost. Fox will be better pro than him talk to me in five yrs

Gaudreau has one NHL goal whereas all your "prized" prospects have none.

Take a frickin chance. The amount of money we have wasted on other players, giving Doan $6m, $6.5 or $7m doesn't seem all that bad. Seriously, $3.5m salary and $3.5 signing on fee each year for 3 years. Come on we gave Sundin a stupid amount of money and I would say Doan will give more to the team than Sundin ever would.

this ^^^

No, this:

If we were miles under the cap like we were when we signed Sundin that would be fine, but we are far to close to the cap to overpay
drastically. If we were 15-20 mill under the cap nobody would care if they offered Doan10 mill a year.


Orland Kurtenbach and Dennis Kearns had just been torched 8-1 by the Habs, but they still took time to come out to meet us, some fellow BC boys who were playing hockey in Montreal. THAT"S what being a Canuck is!

Wow.

If you're going to call someone a "dumbass", you should have your facts straight. I'd like to know who the two geniuses were who gave you pluses for that post... :wacko:

There's no way Doan is worth anything close to Sedin money. Not on this team at least.

Doan for three years @ five million is the most I'd do; I wouldn't want to ruin the core (Burrows and Edler) for an aging forward.

Totally agree. That's the max I would do. Jensens prob on the team in 2013-12, Kassian will probably be in the top 6 at that point as well. Plus whatever young piece they get in a goalie trade. There's no room for him after 3 yrs, IMO - he'll be 39 and taking up a lot of cap space.

there's no way Sedins worth the money they're getting - these days they would get much more than that

Why not? 6.1 M isn't a jaw dropping cap hit, a bargain for the Sedins obviously. Doan is that missing piece of the puzzle Van needs. He adds size, grit, skill and heart. If need be, why wouldn't you over pay him? He's a character guy, I'd do whatever it takes to sign him if I was Gillis.

I completley agree with KevinB. Trade Ballard to free up cap space if we have to.

It's interesting that Bergevin stated "theres no way i'm buying out Gomez", and now he's doing just that.

(This is the article i'm referring to) - Bergevin saying he won't buy Gomez out: http://www.sportsnet...real_canadiens/

Bergevin expected to buy Gomez out:
http://www.sportsnet...real_canadiens/

I doubt Bergevin goes back on his word unless he's got something like Doan lined up.

Has Doan even met with the Canadiens yet? If not don't believe what that guy tweeted.

I had to sign in to squash this. We have to be extremely careful here. If we dont spend a bit more and get a piece like Doan, though I believe there isnt any, then yes we'll have a compettitive team in the future....but we wont win. Spend now...win now. Save and play golf.

The Canucks better not blow this chance to land Doan by offering 3 years max if Doan wants 4. Give him the 4 and make every damn effort possible to get him on the team.
