I hear you …. and had Stan acquired him, that’s what Parise would have been. Big bucks for a great player that does not plug the gaping holes we have however. Furthermore it leaves no cap space to fill those holes.

Doan isn’t the “sexy” pick of a Parise nor does he have the talent or the youth of a Parise, but he is what we need at the moment and a perfect player to bring in for a few years while the kids develop. This is so blatantly obvious to me. A player like him doesn’t come around every day, and though in his twilight years, I think he has a lot of hockey left in him. But I’m through repeating myself.
