Doan on a 35+ contract with a 6 million cap hit doesn't sound good to me

+ we don't know about the Cap for next year. This could really finish the dreams to get a #1 goalie

If you are worried about what the fans think so you don't do certain things then yes that is a problem and to me that seems to be in Bowmans mind, don't really change anything then it's not really your fault.
Bowman isn't afraid to pull the trigger. He just isn't stupid. He won't overpay just to get this guy or the other. He has a full roster that will make the POs with a Core that has won the Cup already. He is in no hurry. He will not overpay for a free agent or give away more assets/value than he gets back in a trade. I'm fine with this.
