@News1130Sports: If Shane Doan signs in Vancouver - say bye to Alexandre Burrows.



I'd take burrows over Doan, but that is just me.

Burrows is looking at a $2m - $2.5m raise. In a year. To suggest the Canucks can't afford that and doan is absurd

More like say bye to Raymond, Ballard, Alberts, Luongo. Thats roughly 13 million in cap space. Leaving 4 for Burrows, 4.5 for Doan, 4.5 for Edler. The way Edler has performed in the last 2 playoffs will hinder his pay day.


That's what I was thinking. I wish Edler could live up to his potential, but it's just not in the cards.

Yeah, if we sign Doan to the first line then Burrows is exactly the playmaker with Kesler-chemistry that we've been looking for on the second line.

I'd agree with the above - Edler is far more likely to be moved, as he's far more easily replaced in a Luongo trade.

For some reason I doubt edler gets traded, But I could see a chain of events happen if Shane Doan signs,

Sorry should have said potentially on Edler, not confirmed but hearing he may be part. But yes all hinging on Doan.

Doan signs here and I have been told he is bc of the issues with the lockout, Phx hasn't solidified the ownership issues, CBA changes, he is hedging now, looking out for himself as he has too much uncertainty.

Result will be Lou moves to FLA shortly thereafter and potentially eddie, but the names I'm hearing back mean Blockbuster

so is it true hes schedules to make the announcement at noon PST?

To me, if he was going to stay in phx, he would just do it and get it over with.. making a planned announcement could hint at a fairwell message to yotes?

Great, we've been waiting for 2 months, it's about time! Hahaha

As said before, I also think that this will ignite other trades and contract extensions for the Canucks. Next days will be interesting

Common sense says he will sign in Vancouver now. The ownership issue has not be dealt with in Phoenix so what are his options? sign in Van.

That being said, it changes the return on what Gillis wants/needs for Lou. I'd say based on Doan signing he will be looking for prospects that are 1-2years out from making the team.

Then maybe he hunts for that number 1 defenceman....

Glad this topic came up today cause it looks like a slow day at work...this fills the gap nicely.

"I'm taking my talents to Wreck Beach" ??

What News 1130 tweeted about it being either Doan or Burrows is wrong. There is nothing to suggest that we can't afford both.

Lots could happen in the next 24 hours. Doan decision plus it sounds like the Canucks are getting closer to re-signing Burr. I'll only exhale when that is made official. One player we can NOT lose is him.

Worrying about cap compliance hours before the NHL is locked out doesn't really make sense. With the way MG has handled the Luongo season it's like he's been banking on a lockout all summer. At this point the play is to take Doan and worry about the details of cap compliancy, eventually.

I know @TheNHLInsider_ is just twitter, but he just tweeted this:

The exact text from the source: "Doan has chosen to go with the Canucks' 4-year offer. Sad day for the Coyotes."
