But he likely won't.... How many days off do you think he'll be given from the deadline to the playoffs? He'll probably just fly his family in on weekends, which isn't bad. Given that, Vancouver is another attractive option. It's only about a 2 hour flight from Vancouver as well. He'd only be away for 2-4 months, I'm surprised an athlete like Doan without a cup wouldn't want this opportunity. I'm sure his family would understand... Does he have a baby at home or something?

Vancouver really wouldn't make a pitch for him I don't think. I see ZERO way to fit him under the cap, and realistically I don't see Gillis giving up major pieces for a rental he knows he cant re-sign.
