If Anaheim says Ennis must be included for Ryan no matter what I also walk away. I would however move McNabb if I must. Otherwise, go after Parise.
It's not going to be about money or giving him the best contract. I think if Doan determines that he must leave Phoenix, it's going to be about finding the best situation in which to win a Stanley Cup. The guy is 35 and didn't win a playoff series until this year. And Sabres fans think he's going to come to Buffalo, where the team has missed the playoffs in three of the last five seasons and hasn't won a playoff series during that period, just because we offer him an additional million or two? Very doubtful.

If he comes east at all, I suspect it'll be to play for someone like the Penguins, not the Sabres.
