Just give him $5M and lets wrap this up.

Trade Luongo for Bgustad, then I won't have to hear any more of these reports or rumours.

Didn't Gillis just state policy when not re-signing Salo that the Canucks.org do not sign free agents over 35 to multi year deals?

So,career Canucks all take a discount for years and an aging Coyote gets to make more than Hank,Dank and Kes?

Better be a bonus for Doan to bring him under $6.1 or there is going to be one t'd off Vancouver dressing room.

I don't know, from the start of all this everything I read on the situation was about Doan wanting to stay close to his family ( which sounded like they would remain in Phoenix ) so that would mean a West coast team. I don't care what the Rangers have offered if he wants his family on the West coast then he won't be heading East, period, no matter the offer. Sounds like family is first to him then $/term. He will be going into the final contract of his career so you can't blame him for wanting the best contract he can possibly get. Also because of this it makes big sense that if he does not re-sign with Phoenix he will want to go to a team where he has a good chance at winning a Cup since it'll be his one and only shot at it. That cancels out a lot of teams, so Eastern teams, gone, Western teams who are not Cup contenders, gone. Fact is, Vancouver makes the most sense.
I still think he will end up back with the Coyotes but IF he moves , expect it to be to the Canucks. I don't care about the age thing really , many teammates, etc. have talked about how physically strong the guy is not from training but from living the life of a rancher and that he will be that way for a long time yet.
What a perfect guy to show Kassian the way to becoming a power forward. Doan would be a great signing for so many reason, I just wish it'd get done soon so we can shift our focus back to a Luongo trade;)

Doan will sign in Van for max 4.75 million per annum for two years max, or he ain't welcome .. the guy is so over-rated here in CDC land that even he is starting to think he is a "star" .. any bonus' should be based on team success and not on his ability to feed off the Sedin's garbage .. B)

The only way Philly is getting him is by paying him his asking price, they have horrid defense/goaltending.


Goaltending, Yes.

They have good defence.

Coburn - Schenn
Mezaros - Timonen
Grossman - Lilja

And if Pronger comes back itll be icing on the cake

That defense is not very good. Schenn playing top four minutes is going to be real fun to watch. And Pronger is likely done.

No offense, but to people saying they wouldn't want Doan cause he's old, production will slow down, too big of a cap hit, just know that it won't be a bad thing to get him, at all actually. Who cares if his production falls later, if we get him, our 2nd line will be a force to wrecken with and it will make us true contenders without a doubt. If we don't get him, we drop from SC contenders to 1-2 round exit cause that's how unstable our 2nd line is and it's how much he can solidify it. Not to mention, we arguably get a top 5 powerforward in the league - our teams known to take crap and Doan has none of it; guys a badass when he has to be and will show opponents not to mess with his team. Also, Kassian being a PF, Doan can be a perfect mentor for him - Zack has all the qualities, Doan can help him with his skill and how to use his body as best as he can and it'd be tremendous help, almost how Demitra and Sundin helped build Kesler. And his veteran presence is just a bonus ontop.....I think you guys over-exaggerated that you wouldn't want him....I'm sure you'd want him more than you wouldn't but then again, if we don't get him, we will have more options next free agency as there is a better FA pool.


I probably have underestimated the value of mentoring Kassian. There is actually a chance that Gillis went after Kassian knowing that Doan could be available.

I do want Doan for this year. Am I prepared to mortgage our future for him? No. Top 5 PF is an overstatement. Top 10? Maybe. I'd love a 1 year, 7.5 mil deal a lot more then a 3 year, 5 million dollar deal.

Short sighted you mean? Cited means something completely different...

When 2014-2015 rolls around our window will be pretty much closing for winning a Stanley Cup anyway. We need to win NOW, within the next couple years, which requires risk taking and going all-in. Yes we'll be stuck with a 3rd liner being over paid for a couple years, but that deal isn't much worse than wasting 4 million on a third pairing D or wasting 2.5mil on a 4th liner.

Thanks... Autocorrect on iPad.
I don't see why people buy into this media-created idea that our window is "closing". Our window is gonna get smaller and bigger but shouldn't close. Kesler isn't getting old yet (worn down, maybe). We have a possible full replacement for a second line coming through the works in Gaunce, Schroeder, Jensen. Kassian could be a first liner if he is properly groomed. Schneider could be with us for a long time and if not, lack should be as good and so should Cannata. Our D is not old by any stretch and we could not have another d draft pick and we could be good for another 6-7 years. Our window will close if we close it by adding players like Doan or Salo for multi-year deals.

If it bothers you so much there are other options you can explore; like not logging onto CDC...

the problem is replacing the sedins. they're superstar players, and nothing currently in the system will come close.

Ages ago? It only happened an hour or so ago. They only met .. today. So do you have anything more intelligent to say than 'proven inaccurate ages ago' like, what proves this inaccurate?

30 mil over 4 years.

Bang on !
Exactly what I would offer Doan as well
Would love to have Doan as a Canucks but not for a long term deal and overpaid !

Damn, can't wait for the season to start - have had enough of all these rumors, trades, signing .....

Hour or so ago?

http://www.broadstre...-offer-insanity

Take a look at the date of the article... More than 2 weeks ago... You sir are not keeping up with the Shane Doan saga..... So if your not going to keep up to date dont come in here and throw stones like you know something.

The 4yrs 30mill thing is ages old and he/his agent have said those numbers are ludacris and not at all accurate in terms of what he's looking for. If Carolina wants to offer him that fine, but that doesnt mean thats what hes looking for.

I heard it on the radio, not some article, based on the discussion that happened .. today. I'm happy to not be following this 'saga' if that's really how you want to define it. Talk about hype. Also, did you learn English by watching rap videos? Jesus.

It's simple business. He has established his value by comparison, and now will look to get as close to it as possible. Somehow I doubt a guy unaware of the existence of commas and apostrophes (and spelling based on rap music videos) could have the closest inkling of an idea of how to manage money, haha.

there is a video of Doan beating Mantracker but the last time I posted it I got a stupid warning point. . .

moral: doan beat mantracker, which is ridiculous and we should sign him.

Grammar police showed up!!! Argument win for me!!! DING DING DING!!!


P.S.-how i type on an internet forum, especially CDC of all places. Means absolutely nothing when it comes to my grasp of the english language, nor my ability to grasp the concept of a comma or apostrophe.
