Doan would of been nice as he was the type of guy we need, but Burr signed for less and is in the prime of his career (unlike Doan who looks like he may take a dip anytime soon).
I don't agree that the Canucks "low-balled" him - at the time of his signing, March 3, 2009, he had scored 16 goals in the 2008-09 season, and had previously racked up:
2005-06 Goals 7
2006-07 Goals 3
2007-08 Goals 12
It was after his signing that he exploded for 12 goals over the next 20 games (after potting 16 in the first 62)...
