He's the second or third most significant free agent that'll be available this summer after Parise. Maybe $6M is stretching it (which is why I put it as my high range), but some team's will go through drastic measures to lock up a highly desired player. Just look at what the Panthers did last summer when they signed Fleischmann at $4.5M.
I think that Doan is definately worth 5.5 on a two or three year deal. Wouldn't do longer term than that.
