    I'm a bit confused, not really surprising

    It sounded like Gillis (and ownership) were going hard after Doan, even made him an offer. But then I hear his agent saying that Doan will have until July 16 to make a decision on whether he'll request a trade. His agent also mentioned that at that time (July16) they will entertain offers. ???

    I thought the Canucks already had discussions with Doan about signing here.

    I understand that Doan is no spring chicken and nearing the end of his loyal career. But you've got to give him a lot of credit: his work ethic, his leadership and doing as well as he did for many years on a lame team like Phoenix. (aside from the good year and playoffs they had this year). I'm thinking if he signs with the canucks and plays with some real top-end talent, he may get a second wind and excel.

    On the radio just now they were saying that he was giving the Coyotes until Monday to make him a good offer, so he's just giving them first chance. After that he is going to make a decision. He's already been talking with other clubs.

    Canucks have officially offered Doan a contract:

    The third team to offer Coyotes Captain Shane Doan a contract following LA and San Jose is the Vancouver Canucks!

    So Anna, what do you think about the notion that Russell Wilson is better than Andrew Luck?

    That's awesome. I hope it was substantial. I would say around 5.5mil to 6mil. I know its a lot but you cant really justify spending 4.5mil on Booth and pay Doan the same. The market has become super inflated and I for one am willing to show Doan the money. He is a perfect fit for this team. I personally think he goes to Detroit because they have a ton of cap room and a damn good team, even without Lidstrom. I would be stunned if he goes to LA, and San Jose is intriguing to say the least. If he goes to San Jose it will be fun to watch him in the rivalry between the Kings. I really hope he comes to Van, but honestly I just want him to go somewhere he will be happy. He has been the ultimate nice guy with the Jets/Coyotes franchise, and he deserves to choose his destination.

    Signing him would basically be our last gasp effort of winning the cup while the window is still open. Sedins aren't getting any younger, Kesler isn't getting any healthier... we need Doan to help this core win.

    Hopefully its either an expensive one year deal, or a cheaper 2 year deal.

    I predict 4/22.

    I'm thinking 4.5 cap hit over 4-5 years. My hunch.

    I really like Doan, and I think he'd be a great fit on the Canucks. He would add much neeed leadership, a physical presence, his determination and positive attitude. But will Gillis make him a good offer? or will he low-ball Doan, thinking he'll accept a home-town discount? I hope his offer was a good one, and not pale in comparison to LA's and San Jose's offers.

    I noticed Florida signed Mueller to a one-year deal. Could he be a part of the trade coming back for Lu? I can see Gillis making a trade, but the Canucks getting average players back in return, instead of that real top 6 player we desperately need. Hope I'm wrong and Doan signs here.

    He's still good for 50 to 60 points on the right team. I think he brings a lot of maturity, talent and the right type of teammate that we need. If he were to become a Nucker we could finally get rid of Mason Raymond for good.

    Doan would help a lot. And then add to the value we will get in return for Lu would be really great for this team.

    I actually had a dream that we traded Luongo to Carolina for two prospects that have 0 future in the NHL.

    Starting to feel like Doan will end up in San Jose if not PHX.
