Like I said before, had I been in Doan's shoes, I would have been throwing the goalie net into the Kings dog pile. You wouldn't have completely lost it after a "dirty hit" leads to an OT goal? come on...
That's right, it's speculative, as is the belief he would be a good fit. None of us really know. Before last season, I didn't have any negative opinions about Doan.
Brown has never been suspended for a illegal hit to the head. Go back and look at Doan's. It was bad.
Brown's hit in the WCF wasn't dirty. I understand Doan being pissed. I can't condone his actions in the handshake line, however. That was unprecedented in it's poor sportsmanship.
I'm not saying he's an *** or the Kings shouldn't sign him. I'm just saying these are things that should be evaluated before bringing him into our locker room. I trust Lombardi/Sutter/leadership group will make that judgement properly.
