Go for Doan now or wait for Iginla?

80 posts in this topic

Well I think Iginla would be the 3rd most sought after UFA, the 1st 2 would be Perry and Getzlaf. Most likely, none of those guys are coming here. The 2 under-the-radar guys I'd want would be Stephen Weiss as a 2nd line centre (move Kes to the wing) and Ryane Clowe as our 3rd line center.

As for Doan, I'm not so sure signing him would be a good idea. He'd command atleast $5M, which would put us over the cap, and in order to get below the max, we'd pretty much have to give Lu away for nothing. Also don't forget that Burrows and Edler are UFA's next year, both guys we need to sign and will command a hefty raise, so need money for them too.

really wouldn't mind it if Doan signed here, I think with someone with those leadership credentials can really help keep the team in line and focused on winning rather than going back to stupid diving and complaining again. As well, he brings size, hitting, skill, play making to the 2nd line and I doubt that he would be one (as an ex-captain) to disrupt locker room chemistry but he can step in and do some leading to support Hank.

Really hope that MG can pull out the stops during his visit in the Canucks' facilities and reel in this big fish.

Way too paranoid about the salary cap, dear god. There is always room if the guy makes sense and fits in the team.

Let's wait for Dave Babych.

They say he's 10 feet tall and has a mustache made of magic.

Want to see iginla retire a flame. We felt the same way about linden and it would have been just wrong if he retired with any other team.

I've always thought about iginla as an opportunity to win a cup with him in our line-up. But I believe that we are going to have to commit to Doan, as the chances of acquiring Iginla are most likely slim at best.

It's not like players are knocking down our door wanting to play in vancouver. We won't get doan, we won't get iginla, we get people like wellwood.

I'd want Doan over Iginla.

Iginla might be traded away WITH kipper in a package deal to build young.

Thats something i see a lot of when i was checking out the Lames board.

Acquire Iginla and Kipper on trade dealine so Kipper can backup Schneider!!! :bigblush:

I am not a fan of the interdivision trading, especially with the Flames. Iginla is in his twilight years, is a sold power forward, but in all reality he will retire a Flame.

Iggy is too good for Calgary, but we'll never get him.

Doan on the other hand is a possibility...
