But besides that, as much as I'd like to see Doan on my team, I don't want him for the amount of money and years he is said to be asking for. I can't even afford to dream about him!
And that is why I don't take him into consideration.
If adding both is something we want/need to do it can be made to work out cap wise. Not only could an additional trade be made as many have suggested, but I'm someone in favor of sending Leino overseas to make room on the roster and under the cap in order to improve the team. Again, not saying I'm ready to give up on Leino if he has a place on the team, but should we sign Doan he's not necessary. And if moving him means we can add a player like Arnott, a true veteran center and cup winner, then make it happen.
Arnott, IMO, isn't really what this team needs. However, options are running thin and I wouldn't mind bringing him in. Its just not a cap concern for me.
