    Canucks haven't signed Doan yet, but...

    Vancouver, B.C. - Vancouver Canucks President & General Manager Mike Gillis announced today that the Canucks have signed right wing Guillaume Desbiens.

    Desbiens, 27, has played in 23 NHL contests with the Canucks and Calgary Flames, collecting 37 penalty minutes. In 2011.12 he split the season with the Flames and the AHL Abbotsford Heat. The 62, 205 lbs. forward registered 14 points (3-11-14) and 114 penalty minutes in 59 games with the Heat and 25 penalty minutes in 10 games with the Flames.

    The Alma, QC, native was originally selected by the Atlanta Thrashers 116th overall in the 2003 NHL Entry Draft.

    Yeah, I saw this on twitter like an hour ago. I didn't post it because it didn't feel news worthy to me.

    Any transaction that the team does is newsworthy.

    True, but Desbiens is horrible and not worth my time.

    Would you give Shane Doan $7,500,000 per year over four years? I wouldn't.

    I would not. If you could guarantee a cup than yes, but that's not possible.

    Doan guarantees a greater chance at a cup. Nothing in life is ever guaranteed.

    I would be hesitant to give him 4 honestly. I know the market is crazy but I'm not slobbering over him.

    It's the fact that if he retires we are stuck with the cap hit. Also a 7.5 cap hit for an aging powers forward, who even in his prime was not an elite player is a tough pill to swallow.

    Except for death, taxes, and Canucks winning the cup if Doan signs here.

    I'm not trying to be a 'hater' or anything, but please, back this one up.
