They ask, should the Devils sign Doan?

KuklasKorner : Devils Advocate : Shoud [sic] the Devils target Shane Doan?

[...] With the Devils losing Zach Parise to the Minnesota Wild, do the Devils need to bite at the chance to sign Shane Doan if he decides to leave the Coyotes?

Doan is reportedly asking for as close to a 4 year – 30 million dollar contract which is quite a lot, even for him. Still, if the Devils feel they need the scoring presence in the absence of Parise, would you want the Devils to reach out to Doan and try to reach an agreement?


p.s. $7.5 million a year for four years for SHANE DOAN? Har-de-har-har. If that’s the case — and I hope it is — the chances of him signing with the Kings is exactly and unequivocally zero.

    Maybe, as an older team with a lot of headaches the older Devils can use a bottle of Doan’s Pills.

    I have no clue how Shane Doan thinks he’s worth that.

      Assuming that report is true, the only explanation that makes sense to me is that he still really wants to re-up with the Coyotes, but if someone makes him a crazy-favorable offer like that, it’s worth it to take the money/security and leave Phoenix.
