Doan will barely protect HIMSELF, and only when cornered .. self-deception on CDC is appalling .. some of the folks here should actually WATCH a season or two of Doan before making him out to be something he is NOT .. :picard:


That is par for the course on here..........I call it "the king's new clothes" syndrome. Everyone we go after is a multiple ass kicker ..................a year later he's turned into a bag of pucks.

Unfortunately the "ass kicking Canucks" play in a parallel Universe while we have the team that gets "molested"


"There is not one player on the the top two lines that will protect Henrik,Daniel and Kes.
Aren't we tired of our star players being rag -dolled into Gillis redundancy yet?"


I really don't understand our management thinking.
From the first day we decided that the Twins were going to be on our first line we should have put someone on their wing to sort out the liberty takers. Now YEARS later we still haven't given them protection. I cant think of another top team who would have allowed this to go on for so long.

Two real tough guys having their semi-annual "bitch-fest" .. one game does not a career make .. and he only fights when he gets to start it? ... at least you are not talking out of your arse .. their is no room for the echo when yer head is stuck up there .. :lol:
Doan attacks a puzzy like Brown .. could you find one where he fights anyone tough at all?? ..

Doan is overrated in terms of what we should expect and therefore pay for him . I would love to have him but I fail to see how he will win the cup for us like most people seem to think. In spite of this he is a good fit for us at the right price

Booth-Kes-Burr sounds pretty good too if we want the twins together, Burr has some sedinery rubbed off on him and Kes might just get back to himself.

Need a better second line then that or it's a short playoff run. You have Ryan who will not pass, booth who can't pass and Alex who sets up well in the slot for a pass from????? Booth??? Kesler??? Next.......

Kesler can, he has to choose to play that way. It's a fast line too and evens out the size of the top 6. All capable of 25+ goals, defensively strong. With the right d-men pairing, hell yea it's worth a shot.

We're not getting him.

All the talk of getting him is to keep us somewhat satisfied that we're in the hunt for big name ufa's.

But he's not that great anyway. He's slow. He's not much of an offensive force. But he is big and he does hit a lot. Not as much as before, but a lot. That's not enough to throw away buckets of guaranteed cash for. Afterall, it's not like the guy can guarantee us a cup.

Enter the new CBA. If the cap goes down (and this is what Doan is waiting for), then there is NO WAY the Canucks will be getting him. He'll likely stay in Phoenix. There's a chance he moves on to a different team with far more cap space that us. But we are not getting him.

So don't worry about him not being the right fit. Not. A. Problem.

Doan is perfect for the Sedins and Kesler and Burrows have Chemistry.

While he may not be the playmaker that we need (logicly) it will still work out, I think we will be fine.


Bingo, remember how good that line was in game 7 vs chicago? insert booth instead of RayMay and its gold

Oh hello Alain Vigneault, I see what you did there... good one.
