You're out of your mind. don't get too enamered with flashy numbers. Shane Doan would be a tremendous signing for a young team that could sorely use veteran leadership upfront. Yes, he's getting older and no he's not the player he was 5 years ago, but when you look at the Flyers, what they need, and what it'll cost to acquire.... Doan is as good a value as any player outside the big two.

I trust Doan over the next 4 years to make a difference as much or more than I trust Semin over the same timeframe.
