I completely understand all that, but I still completely disagree with you. I'm not going to do the work, but I think if you compare team's career goals, it will not flatter NYR.

There's just no way I'm giving the outright advantage to NYR.

Add to that the fact that we're talking about the New York Rangers. A quick look through the last fifteen years has them continually signing big free agents who continually fail to carry them. Remember when they signed Gomez AND Drury? The Hockey News ran a cover with the statement "Rangers become cup favorites in a New York minute", I don't think they made the playoffs that year.
Maybe it's different now because they have a legitimate team, but history would definitely side against those who get too excited about the Rangers and their big signings.

Tomorrow is BC day, and my hunch is something will get announced then if indeed Doan intends to play for the Nucks. Crossing fingers. :)


Yeah because signings are usually announced on holidays. The only time that happens is when FA starts on July 1st and that's not a holiday in the US, which is the calendar the NHL is run on

theres a rumor on twitter that Canucks and Doan have reached a verbal agreement.... #CantWaitTillMonday

That is the worst source I've seen since Samjam99


Judging from the guy's following of kesler, bieksa, and the canucks, im pretty sure he's a canucks fan, so i'm not surprised hes saying shane doan is coming to canucks haha. I hope Shane doan is coming though haha

Indeed, but I've always been curious about rumours from a credible "source." Isn't that news?

Still changes nothing. I don't think there is any news to be had on this subject. Not until there is an actual signing.

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.

yes, clearly it is a new account, and has no credibility to back it up.. just the claims that hes an ex-nhl employee, living in pheonix. its not impossible its some disgruntled x employee whose trying to get some attention and have some fun.. i just posted it becaue i had found it. he doesnt seem to be pro vancouver in any way.. plus as i said, it could also be the "source" nhl_trade used.. like everything on twitter is should be takin with a salt shaker in one hand

This soap opera needs to be cancelled. Just sign a 1-year deal with the Yotes Mr Doan, and tease us all again next year.

What holiday... BC day is only in BC.... what about June 24th Saint-Jean-Baptiste...

BC day is a civic holiday

anyway he can sign any time he wants to it is up to him and his agent

“Since the beginning of recorded history, which is defined by the invention of writing by the Sumerians around 6,000 years ago, historians have cataloged over 3700 supernatural beings, of which 2870 can be considered deities.

So next time someone tells me they believe in God, I’ll say “Oh which one? Zeus? Hades? Jupiter? Mars? Odin? Thor? Krishna? Vishnu? Ra?…” If they say “Just God. I only believe in the one God,”

Never said adding Doan would make our offence better than NYRs... quite the opposite actually. Read again (unless you were just agreeing with me by reiterating the sentiment).



- Brad Richards is still a top PPG center in the league
- Callahan is their heart and soul guy, like Kesler
- Nash is a beast whose numbers have been stunted because of the crap-hole that is CBJ
- Gaborik is still a top forward
- Stepan is already a 50 point guy in his first two seasons on the big club, a great fit as the 2nd center

That leaves Kreider, Hagelin or (and hopefully not) Doan as the 6th man. Kreider looks like a young phenom and Hagelin put up almost 40 points in under 70 games in his rookie season... we don't need to talk about Doan.

Their offence >>> ours, at least the way it is now

I am in agreement with you on the Ranger offence. Even tho Gaborik had a poor playoff the Rangers will probably see a bounce back from him and as you suggest Kreider and Hagelin give them lots of depth. The NHL has never seen Nash play on a real talented roster and he alone could run away with the league.

Again I say that adding Doan will not be enough for Vancouver. He would be a big part but Gillis has to get a substantial return form a Lu trade and the existing roster have to return to their performance level of 2 seasons ago.

I do not want Shane Doan. He's old, yeah great he's gritty and physical but at 36 years old he's on his twilight years. Why would we commit more money than 4 million to a player with 20 goals who's 36?

Jagr, a first ballot Hall of Famer, signed for 4.5 million, right?

So why we would pay over 4 million for Doan baffles me.
