I would guess that it's a team that's not really in the running for the guy, figuring they might still be able to lure him by throwing a ridiculous amount of money his way.

Why Montreal? Aren't they trying to get young and develop?

If it was indeed Montreal that offered him the contract, it wouldn't surprise me that much. Doan ain't getting any younger, but when Bergevin was hired he had a 7.5M dead contract on his team, in his eyes if he buries that contract and ends up even (cap-wise), and has Doan in the line-up instead of Gomez, he's coming out on top.

Of course it's a ridiculous contract but I'm just trying to put it into perspective, Montreal would actually end up on top if Doan signed this contract, all things considered.

I hope it's the Islanders, **** it.

We're gonna get laughed at anyway.

Let's get laughed at for trying too hard for a change, rather than not trying.

Any team would be idiotic offering that to Doan but Montreal might be one of the worst of the bunch. Even with Doan I question playoff possibility given who they have to beat out to get there. One would think after the contract disaster they endured, the new regime would be smarter. Hopefully, this all nonsense.

Wow, something a person said on Twitter might be a lie?

No way guys, Shane Doan obviously got a 4 year offer at $7.5 Million per year.

As I said on our board in the Doan thread, I don't believe it's the Isles for a second. Unless they just gained interest and reached out to him today, I don't buy it. They haven't been on the list of interested teams.

There have been 16 teams that have reached out to Doan; BUF, CAR, CHI, DET, LAK, MTL, NYR, PHI, PIT, SJS, STL, TBL, TOR, VAN, and WPG is the believed list. Counting Phoenix, that's 16. Fans of Eastern Conference teams on that list, if this is a true rumor, which it very likely could be considering how many teams have money to spend, there's a 1/9 chance it could be your team.

This didn't happen, otherwise Doan would have put pen to paper by now.

He's no mercenary, but he'd have to be crazy to pass on a deal like that.

I don't understand why Montreal is being mentioned here, there is no logical reason why they would offer this - none.

what would be wrong with garth offering a straight 5 million per year for 4 years with 10 million in bonus money if bonus clauses are met?

1.25 million bonus for each year doan scores 60 points.
1.25 million bonus for each year doan collects 180 hits.

my math tells me that its a 20 million dollars contract with 10 million available in bonuses.

60 points and 180 hits are what he averaged over his last 4 years......so theres a very good chance for him too pick up 10 million in bonus money.

Unless the team making the offer won't even sniff the Cup in any of those 4 years.

Not if he's taking his family into consideration. At this point in his career it will be more of personal and family preference than money. Also, if he'd like to win a Cup.

Would you make that big of a life decision that isn't only a major significance in your life but in the lives of five others that quickly? Doan and his family have been in Phoenix for A LONG TIME. It's his and his family's home.

Except he may still want to stay in Phoenix. So even if the deal was offered, he may not accept it until he finds out the result of the Coyotes situation.

I got to work and I friend told me he signed with the Flyers for like $4 mil a year. I thought he was a Flyer for 5 hours.

Hope he signs with Buffalo (Not for 7.5 a year, though)

I could see 7.5 if it was a two year deal, but on a 4?

That is an overpay of Sather proportions...

This. If you get offered that kind of money you accept ASAP! You don't even risk waiting. The GM might change his mind.

Also, I believe Eklund on him saying the Flyers AREN'T the rumored team. Ek is usually always on top of Flyers stuff, for whatever reason. He broke the M. Richards trade, afterall. If you're looking for a team for Eklund to actually spew correct information about, it's the Flyers.

I would prefer $5 to $5.5 million from Vancouver, LA, Pittsburgh, Detroit, Philly and a few other teams. While the contract is disgustingly good. This is likely Doan's last opportunity to win a Stanley Cup and honestly, what chances does Phoenix have of a repeat performance like this past season? You can always make money, even if only through good investment. Cup chances have an expiration date.

Only reason I can't see this as being true is that if this was offered i'd be shocked if Doan didn't immedietely accept it...

$30 mil garaunteed for 4 years? That's a boat load of cash, he can fly back and forth from Phoenix.
