You know why I'd rather sign Drury, Gomez, Holik, etc. over Doan? BECAUSE THEY WERE NOT 35+ CONTRACTS.
What's the difference between signing a declining player at age 31 (Redden) to a 6.5 a year contract, and signing a 35 year old to a 2 year deal at 5 a year? Both contracts take you to 37 years old, and quite frankly, Doan is much better than Wade Redden at age 35. And the cap hit would be less than Redden's.

Using hindsight, please don't tell me you'd rather sign those listed players, at the price they were signed for, rather than sign Doan.
