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.
I agree Doan is a workhouse, big body forechecker on the wing that is great along the boards...he would thrive in laviolette attacking system..He also has an above average shot and with giroux feeding him and hartnell grinding with him it could be a tremendous line. Not to mention he is a class act, a great leader, and is hungry to win.
