Anything beyond 2 years is suicide.

Mayers is here for a second year and is three to four years older. Productivity would not be an issue.

However, I agree on not paying him $5 million at age 38.

Comparing mayers, who is going to be a part time 4th liner, to a 35 plusyo winger paid top six money is a bit silly don't you think?

Doan's agent has said he's interested in Detroit and SJ.

http://blogs.denverpost.com/avs/2012...-sharks/11076/

http://www.freep.com/article/2012071...t-in-Red-Wings

As mentioned earlier in the thread, there are plenty of tweets saying who is in and who is likely out of the running. I've read a tweet that LA and Doan are rumored (as we suspected) as having mutual interest from Dennis Bernstein tweets.

Plenty more to pop up today and tomorrow, Doan will be a difficult and expensive player to land, I'll be very surprised if Bowman will get a decent chance at landing him even if he could somehow put Chicago ahead of LA or SJ on Doan's list.

Doan will be good but a little overpaid if it exceeds a couple years.

Everyone wants Bowman to "trade for someone". However, whoever it is better be young, a 50+ point scorer who can play solid defense, can win faceoffs, be physical, and have a good contract....oh ya, and he better not trade any of 9 best players or best prospect.

My favorite is in terms of goalies, people don't want Bernier or Markstrom becuase they are unproven, they don't want Backstrom or Luongo because they are too old. So they want a young proven goalie but they don't want to give up any of the core, what LA won't take Stalberg, Frolik, Crawford and a middle round pick for Quick.

Agree, goalies are the best. Despite no #1 goalies ever changing teams, people expect Bowman to get a top flight goalie and not give up much in return.

I'll complain about Bowman not improving the team because he hasn't done so this off-season, to date.

I don't want Luongo.

I do want Doan.

I do want Bowman to trade prospects.

I'll berate Bowman some more because I don't think he'll end up improving the team.

i haven't complained about bowman yet

I dont' want luongo

I don't want doan

I'll gladly trade any prospect or draft pick we currently have for a player in his prime

I'm giving bowman one more season because I've liked his drafting and some of his trades so far. Though, he does appear to err on the side of caution.

So do 29 other teams. Doan is most likely not coming to Chicago.

Is it possible for one of the mods to add a poll to this so we can vote on whether we want him or not?

No. Even if his contract demands aren't completely insane (no more than 5 mil per year) its been reported he is looking for multiple years. The Hawks are a cap team with a lot of talent on the wings already and there is no reason to risk giving Doan a 35+ contract that he may not finish. I would much rather get Andrei Kostitsyn for less money, without the risk of a 35+ contract, and someone who should still have value after the season if a prospect develops and is ready to take his job. AK in a top 6 role will give the Hawks around 20 goals and a decent physical presence.

Doan is good, and I want him.

TFP says he has narrowed his list down to 6 teams, and the Kings and Hawks are near the top

Good news. 3 years, 15M would be perfect. 2C, both ways, tough, brings leadership. Ahhhh, what am I saying? Bowman will find a way to **** it up.

I am almost positive that the the Kings will not sniff a repeat, with our without Doan.

It simply doesn't happen anymore. LA has become incredibly overrated in a very short time. Now that they won a Cup, people are all thinking dynasty... I don't feel it at all.

not just that...but i suspect that there's going to be a level of "fool me once..." when it comes to some of their shenanigans. they've got quick...who, i think, will only get better...so they can't be ignored at all. i can definitely see every other team heavily keying in on brown, et al.
