Pretty sure I saw a quote in the last week from his agent saying that a 1-year deal with PHX is off the table.. has to be multi-year no matter what.

You are correct. Doan and his agent have said all along a one year deal is not going to happen, he wants resolution for what may in all likelihood be his last contract. My point is if he really wants to stay then do the one year deal and see what unfolds. Or get his head around the idea that that isn't viable and sign somewhere.

As for the horses, he can keep the ranch and make it work until his contract is up no matter where he stays. Although front money is on staying in the West for that reason. Since he also wants to go to a contender I think LA and the Canucks are the best bets, in the West. I still don't see SJS being there and Calgary and Edmonton are not going to cut it either. I think LA is the front runner for a lot of reasons so as long as their dollars and term are in the ball park I think that is where he goes.

Well seeing as Selanne just signed a one year deal worth $4.5M, and he's 42 years old, I think Doan's cap hit is going to be in that ball park. It likely won't be more than that though as Selanne out-scored Doan this year by 4 goals and 16 points. Doan still has a few years left in the tank, no question, but his production is not the same as Selanne's and he's asking for longer term. I think age versus style of play and production will alnd him in the same range.

Arizona Ranch or Nevada Ranch?
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

It's probably wishful thinking. Selanne has been signing below-market value one-year contracts with the Ducks for years now. Given the players who have signed $4M+ deals of late, I think Doan will get closer to $5M+ or even more depending on the length of the contract and whether Doan chooses money.

I think this might have been a good idea through trade a couple of years ago. Now we will pay too much for a very good player who is north of 35. Not good. Why did we not go after the Mueller kid in Colorado? He went to Florida for under two mill on a one year try out. This kid was sure fire not too long ago and before the head injury. Maybe Tallon should come home.

Luongo + Gillis... for... Tallon?? :D

Actually, just can Gillis and hire Strangelove.

The Great Strangelove suggested doing EXACTLY that the other day.

Starting to sound like he is going to stay in Phoenix. The Goldwater people are running out of roadblocks.

Lots of scuttlebutt on twitter that an eastern team has offered Doan a four year deal in the the excess of $30 Million.

That's crazy money.

If Doan and his agent want a similar deal (in ~$25M range), then I think you can strike the Canucks from the list.

I would be absolutely shocked if Gillis gives Doan a 4 year deal at $5M per, let alone more.

I would love to see Doan in a Canucks jersey, but I doubt it will happen (...now checking TSN to make sure he hasn't signed in the last few minutes....all clear...). It's not that the Canucks don't need such a player - they do - or that Gillis wouldn't want to get him, but rather that so many other teams will happily overpay for his services. Gillis doesn't like giving multi-year contracts to players over 35. That's probably a good thing, considering how many players of that age group have been overpaid and turned out to be underwhelming. There are just too many teams out there willing to pay $5 milllion a year for three years of more. The only way it turns out that Doan lands in Vancouver is if he really wants to play here, and is willing to give up term to do so.

We'll see if he chases the money. I have no problem if he does, just the problem of hypocrisy really. But overall who can blame him if someone offers him that type of smack. But if the team is not a contender I doubt he takes it.

I have a couple of plants at the golf tournament this weekend so i'll see if I can get some gossip. :D :D :D :D
