if the canucks do sign doan, this is my biggest worry...and it isnt probably what you think

Recommended Posts

if the canucks do sign doan (which would be great...if its no more then two years) my biggest worry is would his heart still be with the phx/wpg organization. i know he would play hard and be an effective player but would that little extra push be left in phx. when sundin was here all i kept hearing was "sure, he is canucks but his heart is still in toronto", there is no shame in that because of all the blood, sweat and tears these two guys put into both of their teams.

virtually what im asking is "would the exact same player we saw in phx, be the one we would have in the canucks line up?"

i have my doubts just because of how loyal he is to phx organization but i also know how much of straight up guy he is through and through

so i dont know, only time tell if he does indeed leave his home sweet home..

It isn't probably what you think I'd think then, because this is what I probably think.

I don't know about you, but I think downtown Vancouver will sooner steal a heart than dry, sweltering Arizona.

I'm sure he'll still love phx but the cup is where it's at. :)

I don't share the same concern.

It could be like when Bourque escaped Boston. I didn't see him lose anything just because he wasn't playing for the Bruins. Instead it was like he was given a fresh opportunity to win the Cup.

When an organization is paying you millions of dollars, when you're on the road travelling, eating, sleeping, and socializing with a certain group of players, and when you are shown love and loyalty from a city and its fans, it's pretty easy to start loving them.

It doesn't matter about the city. It's the organization / the teammates, and coaching staff.

I am sure that the city matters to some extent. People need to be happy in their surroundings to perform to their best in anything. That's all lines of work, not just sports. Professional or not, environment matters a lot.

Doan is always going to be a Coyote. His heart and his legacy is with that franchise and I can't see anything changing that. Just look at all the crap that is going on in Phoenix right now and he is still trying to have faith and stay loyal to that team. Even with all that, the guy is a warrior and if we were lucky enough to sign him, he'd give us everything he's got.

If he goes somewhere else, I think he'll really struggle to adapt to a new environment after being in the same one for so long.

I say we sign him first and then have thoughts about where his heart is after that.
