Read the article. Bross himself confirmed today they they've been offered an over 7 million dollar contract for 4 years, today. I would think they would ask people to match or at least come close.


Doan said he's not all about the money, so I doubt that.

If someone offers you a job on the Alberta oil sands for $100k/year with tough working conditions, a crappy company, lower quality work mates, long cold winters and you have a wife and family... Are you going to take that over a $85k/year job in beautiful Vancouver for a better company, with more benefits, better coworkers, the office has a gym and spa, has more opportunity to advance and is a better environment for your wife and kids...?

"Jupiter, you are angry, therefore you are wrong" ©

If you're going low for personal attacks, it means you're on a shaky ground. Try to find your balance and relax ...

And, BTW, NUMBERS cannot stand OPINIONS. They require calculations or estimation based on models.

I can understand when people on discussion board express their opinion about which player fits where. But salary! It looks so funny.


Where exactly did I make a personal attack?...lol And I'm far from angry. I captilized the OPINIONS to make it clear for you that they are in fact OPINIONS, not because I'm angry. It's to assist with your reading comprehension ;)

As for wether you think my opinion on Doan's worth/salary is "funny", I care not. This is a discussion board where people will have opinions and discuss players salary. If we weren't discussing our opinions on that matter, it would make for a pretty dull (nonexistant) discussion/thread. Either way my opinion on his pending salary is certainly more on subject than your sad attempt to de-rail this thread about "mystical value devices" or whatever nonsensical blather you're going on about.

School starts in four weeks. If he's moving to a new city with the family, he's got to sign somewhere soon, right? I don't know, I still feel like a 1-year deal with the Coyotes is going to be announced.

Things suddenly looking positive for the Coyotes; apparently Jamieson has his investors.

Could be a load of **** though.

Very good point, prob means he HAS to sign within the next 2 weeks to get slightly settled before school starts

Or are his kids staying in PHX and he's gonna go back and forth??

He claims to have the additional $20M needed to buy the team but it also says he still needs to find the capital to run it. In addition, there is a court hearing on the 24th by a higher court to look at the petition that was rejected by the lower courts. The Goldwater group is still a threat to sue as well.

Scraping together the cash to buy a money-losing hockey franchise, is a recipe for disaster. They will be a budget team barely making the cap floor and the product on the ice will reflect that. That leads to fewer fans and more losses and eventually, the break-up of the investment group.

The NHL is showing very poor business judgement in allowing this mistake to carry on. There's a philosophy in golf...don't let one bad shot cost you more than one stroke. The NHL hit the ball deep into the woods in going to Phoenix in the first place, tried to hit a 350 yard recovery shot through dense forest that resulted in the ball bouncing further into the trees. They'd be better to just take an unplayable lie and accept their loss.

If you like looking at statistics to determine who's better, you're just a casual fan.

2.41 season GAA isn't very impressive. Let's not get into playoffs and his SV%.

Cory Schneider is the next Patrick Roy.

The approach being taken by Shane Doan's agent throughout this entire fiasco is quite disappointing. I understand that it is an agent's job to seek out the best deal available. However, am I the only one that feels that this could have been done behind closed doors? Why does Bross need to go out of his way to advertise to the world what teams are "in the mix"? All of this could be done in a far more professional manner and I think a person of Doan's character deserves better.

The agent is setting his client up to be the villain in a BIG way. What he is effectively doing is prostituting Shane out to the highest bidder. Just when we are led to believe that his list of teams has been narrowed, Bross gets in touch with a media outlet to say that another team is now in the mix, so as to drive up the cost. Bross only has his own interest and greed at heart, not Doan's. What he should be doing is privately finding the best deal for Doan and his family rather than turning him into Lebron James 2.0.

I would welcome Doan with open arms and would love to see him in Blue and Green. It's just such a shame that his agent is making it more and more unlikely with every passing day.

Doan's best interest is to make him self and Shane Doan as much money as possible while being in an environment he and his family like. It's Doan's agents job to get him the best deal possible. If he's not doing that he's not doing his job.

I fully understand this. I just feel it could have been done in a more private manner rather than setting his client up to be the bad guy in virtually every major hockey market in the league. Of course its his job to get the best deal financially. And he's doing it well. However, Bross is being completely classless about how he is going about finding that deal. Just my opinion.
