I truly believe that acquiring Doan would instantly make us a Playoff team, he's a warrior, plays a physical game and will be an amazing fit with Gionta and Plekanec which the organization should be desperate for. He's good for 45-50 points, He has the physique to have 2 to 3 very solid years.

I would also not be against offering him a front loaded 4 year deal

something like

1-8m
2-8m
3-7m
4-1m

With such a contract chances are he retires after 3 years which would be ideal. Yes, 8M sounds like a lot but it is free agency, and trust me he will probably get similar offers which are front loaded. It's a risk I think Bergie should take here unless he's totally committed to a full rebuild which means if we aren't a playoff team to trade Plekanec, Gionta, Markov etc for picks or prospects when the time comes.
