Perhaps Doan would not have minded playing here; however, his agent obviously was directed to keep the bids up. It just doesn't pass my stink test. And until Iginla is in green and blue, Lebrun's rumour won't either. (That said, I don't blame Doan for signing with Phoenix. He got great term length).
