I know, I know, it's a 35+ contract, but I think Doan qualifies as a risk worth taking. Here's my lineup with Doan (at 3 years/$16M) and Voracek (signs for 2 years and $6.8M).

Hartnell (4.3M) - Giroux ($3.75M) - Read ($900K)
Schenn ($3.11M) - Briere (6.5M) - Doan ($5.333M)
Voracek ($3.4M) - Couturier ($1.375M) - Simmonds ($1.75M)
Fedetenko ($1.75M) - Talbot ($1.75M) - Wellwood ($580K)
Shelley ($1.1M)

Coburn (4.5M) - Grossman ($3.5M)
Meszaros ($4M) - Schenn ($3.6M)
Timonen ($6.333M) - Gervais ($825K)
Lilja ($737.5K)

Bryzgalov ($5.667M)
Leighton ($900K)

TOTAL CAP HIT: $65.6608M

I'd rather have Gustafsson in the top-6, but that doesn't appear to be in the cards at the moment.

Yay or nay?
I'd love Doan on this team.

I really liked what I saw from Gus during his short stint. I think he is going to give MAB and Gervais some serious competition for a starting spot.
