Target Doan! Trade for Iggie! Trade for Morrow! Send Clowe in a package for Kessel!
So your dream is to get a trio on the twilight of their declining careers.

Is anyone keeping a running tally of Sharks contracts? I want to know if we have room to give an NHL contract to Yanni Gourde if he impresses in camp.

A lot of these Canadian players (and coaches, gm's) grew up with the Canada/Russia rivalry. I don't think it will be a problem. There's no way the hatred is as great.

Just spoke with someone very close to Parise. Thinks Pens and Devils are front runners. Said Lou is guilting Parise heavily about leaving.

..and offensively really. His numbers are right there with Parise but for some reason he is getting all the attention. Semin is bigger and can shoot better than Parise too.

Either way, I don't think DW should be closed off to the idea of adding any snipers than can skate. Speed and hands are at a premium right now for sure.

He's not going to come here even if that was the case. He'd be further away from Russia, and as a few people have pointed out he doesn't speak english well and there are no Russian players on the Sharks. As far as I know the only Russian player we even had in the system was Sobchenko until he died. The only reason I could see him coming here is because he get's overpaid, and DW does not overpay for star free agents.

Honestly, I think we have a better shot at Parise, and that isn't saying a whole lot.

Nash is more likely followed by Ryan, or someone totally out of the blue.

Shane Doans priority is to remain a Coyote but if the Glendale lease deal is delayed beyond July 7th look for him to entertain offers.


John Gambadoro‏@Gambo620

If that happens San Jose could be the leader for Captain Coyotes services. Doan is looking for a 5-year deal with Phx.

Hmm. Want Doan but doubt DW gives him a 5 year deal.

This scares the **** out of me! DW is stupid enough to give a guy like him that many years which would completely eliminate any chance at being a contender. That dude is OLD and SLOW. We cannot afford ANY more slow players.

I wouldn't give Doan more than a 2-3 year deal. Preferably 2 years.

He's 35. If he signs for 5 years and retires due to injuries the next year, whoever signs him is on the hook for the next 4 years.

I'm not a big fan of signing Doan, but if they do I'd give him 3 years. Then when he wants to retire in 2 years we can trade him to the Coyotes so he can retire a Coyote and thus getting rid of his cap hit.

Doan would be great! His kind of game would be perfect on the Sharks, don't know what you're talking about. I understand the risks but I think Doan would be fine playing til he's 40ish. Anyway our window be closing peoples, we need to act now!

I think the 5 year deal is with Phoenix. I suspect if he leaves Phoenix, the term will be shorter than 5 years.

Depends on the price tag. Will he be an effective NHL player in 5 years? Probably. Will he be a 4-5 million dollar player in 5 years? Highly unlikely.

Yeah but when you take into account that our window is closing and Jumbo and Patty and Boyle aren't getting younger, I say its worth the risk.

The Sharks are in a somewhat similar situation as the Caps. It's time to win now. Sadly, there is zero chance Doan heads East. SJ does make the most sense, it is close to home (he is not going to play for the Kings) and the Sharks are contenders.

5 years? Though it is nice to hear San Jose is a leading candidate for a UFA.

Which is exactly why it should be no more than 2-3 years. Boyle, Jumbo, Marleau contracts are all done in the next few years.

I just feel like Iginla and Doan can break down at anytime. They're physical players their whole careers. Players like Whitney and Selanne can play into their late 30's to early 40's because they're fast finesse players. They don't give or take as many hits as Iginla and Doan.

Do not want Doan at all. Most overrated player in the league, will earn 1st line money while playing like a 3rd liner. Really is nothing special defensively. Five years for a player his age is ridiculous.

I'd take Doan on the Sharks, however not at more than $3.5 million which he undoubtedly will get more.
