And that article still suggests that someone will give him $7.5M for 4 years.
@ ProHockeyTalk. Nobody is paying Doan an average salary of $7.5M.
MAYBE someone will do this 4 year deal, but probably not the Sharks:
$7.5, 4, 4, 2
I could be wrong, but I think that is okay under the CBA (who knows about a new CBA).
That would be 4 years, $17.5M, cap hit of $4.375M, but front loaded with a nice year one salary. Not only would the Sharks not do it because of the front-load, but also if Doan retires after year 3 so as not to play in year 4 for the $2M salary, in year 4 Sharks still have the $4.375M cap hit due to the contract being a 35+ contract, another reason they wouldn't do it. But I think there are other teams in the league who would.
NHL Head Coaches are, by and large, vastly overrated, especially when correlating the success and failure of the team to coaching prowess. Todd McLellan is the epitome of this.
