I think it all matters how well Doan handles being 36. I mean Teppo Numminen was huge for us at age 37 and 38, and RUff used him on the PP and PK.
I think you are underestimating the effect that Doan moving to a new team, city, and conference would have on his production.
There would be a ton of acclimation that Doan would have to do that would likely have a negative effect on his production.
That's one reason why so many guys who change teams have down years in the first season with their new club.
It's overly optimistic to believe that Doan at 36yo coming to Buffalo would be immune from all of that. Especially when you add in the drop in ice time.
