Someone said to RP this. :D

Doan visited Phili today, after his NY visit yesterday.

His itinerary is showing his areas of interest.

Shane Doan's agent Terry Bross tells CKWX that "most likely" Shane will visit the #Canucks in Vancouver.
News1130 Sports‏@News1130Sports

Doan is currently in Kamloops at his off-season home and a trip to Vancouver is not very far.
Does it mean that the Canucks are "most likely" on the short list
News1130 Sports‏@News1130Sports

The #Canucks have been on Doan's shortlist from day one. Great city, SC contender, wife's from Kamloops and Lawrence Gillman.
How many teams has Doan visited so far? Rangers, Flyers, and now the Canucks?

So now that Philly lost out on Weber they have oodles of cash to spend elsewhere and there are two desirable wingers still available in Doan and Semin. I think Holmgren will now turn his attention to Doan

Guess we'll have to wait till Friday. Another life- er- deadline for the Coyotes from the Doan camp. God, this is dragging out! I know the guy is loyal to the organization and all, but yeeeessshh... :bang:

Well, just because you don't see it doesn't mean he hasn't tried. But then you know that.

Gillis likes his team. There's not much of a need for a bold move right now. Maybe the following year if the Canucks underachieve this coming season.

2 to 3 more goals per season at 2.5 to 3 times the price.
You are really comparing a $40k sports car to a $100k full size pickup truck. A sports car might look fast and sexy but could not do much besides being fast. A full size pickup truck might not have good acceleration but it does almost everything a sports car cannot do... As for the Canucks, they have some fancy European sedans, North American sports cars, and North American SUVs. However, they lack a full size pickup truck.

Doan is just coming off a playoff run where he scored five goals and nine points in sixteen games - as many goals as any Canuck other than Daniel, Burrows and Kesler scored in their twenty-five game playoff run.

To compare directly to Mason Raymond, in 2010-11 he had two goals and eight points in twenty-four playoff games.

Averaged over an eighty-two game season Doan's playoff career totals put him at 22G 19A 41P while Raymond's totals would put him at 11G 14A 25P.

Nevermind that Doan (the old guy) has been vastly more durable, he's suffered three injuries over the amount of time Mason Raymond has spent in the league. Raymond had three in the 2010-11 regular season alone if memory serves..

And of course, this all completely ignores the fact that Doan has 40 lbs on Raymond and doesn't have any flaws comparable to Raymond's inability to go to the dirty areas (unless he's on a fly-by), the kind of off ice effect a player like Doan generally has, etc.

Shane Doan wants $30-million over four years if he leaves Phoenix Coyotes, source says. That will scare off more than Detroit Red Wings.
:shock: Wow, if Doan is looking for $7.5m per, he might only get it from Holmgren or Sather.

I gotta think the Canucks are out if this report is true. Even if Luongo is moved, and no salary comes the other way, there's just no way to fit that contract in.

I guess part of the problem is the media and fans have been speculating for so long about where Shane will go that we all thought he would move. This report shows he really doesn't want to go anywhere and likely will not be leaving Phoenix. The only team I can think of that would offer that is Montreal, but who would want to end their career on a rebuilding team?
