If you're Sather, do you try to ink Doan, and at the last minute, give Howson an opportunity to come down on his demands for Nash?
Nash+Doan is tight but doable. I think this is one of the reasons Sather saved his nickles and dimes on the 4th line.
Signing Doan would give Sather the opportunity to move a second veteran forward (AA?) in any deal.
