In my eyes drouin is overrated he can score in the qmjhl but did nothing in last two gold medal games that canada lost. Fox will be better pro than him talk to me in five yrs

Gaudreau has one NHL goal whereas all your "prized" prospects have none.

   ryan kesler is going to the chicago blackhawks ...       quote me on it

Got a feeling he's still gonna wait for the Coyotes.

Another letdown. Nothing to see here.

If that's your worry you don't know Shane Doan.

You're right. I don't.

I would think his 'heart' will be towards winning a Cup before retiring, at any cost.

I hope that's the case

If he signs here, he better have his heart in Vancouver. That's my only worry

I agree. He may have the desire to play well but a certain amount of adjustment will have to be made (IF he signs here) and there may be a level of homesickness, not just about the city but also about the organization. If that affects his play it'll be tough to manage

He's an idiot.

The media source closest to Doan, both personally and professionally in AZ, is stating nothing other than Vancouver and Phoenix.

Yeah I call, BS. Note the lack of MG in the Burrows video. I'd say it's a pretty safe bet he's down in Phoenix at the moment.

He needs to get it done by 2pm today otherwise the contract won't likely be finalized by the deadline tomorrow night.

At midnight is his exact words but those are his exact words. Bross has also said he would have chosen within 2 hours ago according to News1130.

The key difference is that Sopel can fill in for Seabrook and Campbell just fine. Bieksa, he is garbage so in that sense he is like the worst defenseman in the league.


When Cody (Hodgson) gets older, he might be better than Datsyuk.


Let's not push this guy (Kassian). He's still immature, and if he fails on the 2nd line it's because he isn't ready. Some guys really need years to develop, it's how well and how fast players adapt to the game. In my opinion, I'd rather have Horvat getting 2nd line minutes. He will start off on the 3rd line next season but I see him making the transition, being a great compliment to whoever plays his wings.

At this point, I don't see Kassian fitting in to any role other than a 3rd. If players like Kassian start getting 2nd line minutes then we just stay inconsistent as a team.

I hope I'm wrong, but it's already been said many times already including from the man himself that his first priority is to stay with Phx, which is most likely what will end up happening. Still got my fingers crossed though.

I woul love for it to be in OT. Schneider makes a huge save on a breakaway. Hank makes an unbelievable pass to Doan to slides in over to Burr for the wide up snapper into the back o the. Net.

Either way :)


Yeah we should include Schneider in that scenario too and at least one of the Sedins. And the goal by Burrows would be another highlight style, epic goal in the top corner. lol.

I've had a Doaner for so long now, it's becoming chafed.... :wacko:


the Doaner is starting to dwindle. If he signs here it will pop up again like youre on viagra.

You are not.

5 ET today is the close of business and the offices will not re-open until Monday, when the current CBA is expired, and his contract is now subject to the new, potentially rolled back salaries of the new CBA.

So if Doan doesn't announce his decision by 2PM does this mean that we can call him a LIAR! Hahahahaha. Kidding.

This should be fun though to see what CDC does right at 2:00PM PST! Countdown to complete chaos!
