If so I'd imagine the Canucks would be the front-runners for him.

EDIT: This was from when Doan was choosing betwen the Canucks and Coyotes

Quote:
Doan, an unrestricted free agent, was reportedly “blown away” by a presentation the Canucks made to the 35-year-old. Vancouver is eager to add a character power forward of Doan’s ilk to its top-six, and the opportunity to play with the Sedin twins and compete for a Stanley Cup is presumably an attractive one.

Also worth noting:

—- Canucks assistant GM Laurence Gilman, formerly an executive with the Jets/Coyotes, has a good relationship with Doan.

—- Doan’s wife is from Kamloops, British Columbia, and the couple spends time there in the offseason.

—- Doan is also a co-owner of his former junior team, the Kamloops Blazers (WHL).
