Normally, i'm with you on the unused cap space is an unused weapon bandwagon, and Doan's great for 7 mil this year. It's not so much the $$$'s, but the length.
But next years UFA crop is alot more impressive (granted, some/most of those guys will resign), and odds are a few out of Corey Perry, getzlaf, Burrows, Weiss, Scott Hartnell, Filppulla will make it to FA. I'm not sure having 7 mil tied down in a guy who's probably about a 20g-25a grinder who's getting older is wise when 7 mil a year probably lands you one of the above.
I don't see any possible way that 7X4yrs for Doan doesn't come back to bite you in the arse at one point.
