Hopefully for your sake Doan doesn't sign the offer. For a soon to be 36 year old who put up only 50 points last year, this potential contract could become one of the worst contracts in the NHL very quickly.

Not sure how many of you here follow the Blue Jays, but a few years ago when they opened up the cheque books and signed/traded for A.J. Burnett, B.J. Ryan and Troy Glaus and re-signed Vernon Wells to a massive $126m contract we thought we were getting three very good, veteran players who'd push the Jays to make the playoffs. Clearly that didn't happen and the Blue Jays have only recently recovered from that fiasco. Signings like this aren't the answer to Buffalo's problems. In a salary cap situation, hope to god that Doan doesn't sign that deal or that management will withdraw the offer or this could be an absolute disaster of a contract. I highly doubt a 39 year old Doan is worth $7.5m per year, especially if he's putting up under 50 points.
