If it's for his leadership alone, that'd be a waste, imo.
There's a team out there that will benefit from adding Doan to their lineup, for sure. I just don't think Montreal makes the best, nor easiest, fit. We could use better wingers, so if we're talking about making a "more serious" investment than ~$5 million/year, I'd start leaning toward Semin, I think.
Isn't Doan mostly a right winger? I think he can play center but hasn't in years. Its Cole's minutes he would compete for. Those and Gionta's.. Semin being a left winger makes him more valuable to the Habs.
