I can understand the concern about Doan's age but he is a gritty hard nosed player who can still produce at a decent clip. He had a good playoffs--or at least what I saw of his Coyotes against the Kings--he was one of (if not the best) Phoenix's better players.

And in Doan's case we're just throwing money at a player--in Nash's case we're really taking on a huge contract and if Howson gets his way we're sending him a bunch of good prospects and players--all of whom are still young.

If Doan were to come here--I expect he will come to fit in. It won't be like Messier to take over. I don't know if there is a downside out of this apart from making the term of his contract too long. Two years would be okay--three would be pushing it.
