But, Doan's 14 PP Pts will be hard to reproduce as I doubt he's on the Sabres #1 PP Unit. Heck, he might not get much PP time at all here.

that's not what he's saying. Read it again, slowly this time.

Vanek - Hodgson - Pominville
Doan - Ennis - Stafford

Over the past three seasons, Doan has gotten 3:11 to 3:45 PPTOI/G.

Over the past three seasons, the Sabres 2nd PP Unit has averaged around 2:15 to 2:30 PPTOI/G.

So he drops to 8-10 PP points. Goes up in even strength points playing with Vanek.

That would probably be what Ruff does since he likes Poms on the point, Im not the biggest fan of Poms on the point though. I dont know how others feel about Poms on the point.

He'll probably get less ES Ice Time, too.

Over the past three seasons, Doan has gotten around 15:10 ESTOI/G and Vanek has gotten around 13:30 ESTOI/G.

I would be really surprised if Doan were to hit 50pts this season in Buffalo.

Hopefully for your sake Doan doesn't sign the offer. For a soon to be 36 year old who put up only 50 points last year, this potential contract could become one of the worst contracts in the NHL very quickly.

Not sure how many of you here follow the Blue Jays, but a few years ago when they opened up the cheque books and signed/traded for A.J. Burnett, B.J. Ryan and Troy Glaus and re-signed Vernon Wells to a massive $126m contract we thought we were getting three very good, veteran players who'd push the Jays to make the playoffs. Clearly that didn't happen and the Blue Jays have only recently recovered from that fiasco. Signings like this aren't the answer to Buffalo's problems. In a salary cap situation, hope to god that Doan doesn't sign that deal or that management will withdraw the offer or this could be an absolute disaster of a contract. I highly doubt a 39 year old Doan is worth $7.5m per year, especially if he's putting up under 50 points.

If Ruff played Doan with Vanek and on one of the PP units he will be close to 50.

I think it all matters how well Doan handles being 36. I mean Teppo Numminen was huge for us at age 37 and 38, and RUff used him on the PP and PK units.

I think you are underestimating the effect that Doan moving to a new team, city, and conference would have on his production.

There would be a ton of acclimation that Doan would have to do that would likely have a negative effect on his production.

That's one reason why so many guys who change teams have down years in the first season with their new club.

It's overly optimistic to believe that Doan at 36yo coming to Buffalo would be immune from all of that. Especially when you add in the drop in ice time.

Unless the talent surrounding Doan is better in Buffalo than who he played with in Phoenix. Then he may get 50+ points.

It will still take time for Doan to settle in with the new linemates, new system, etc.

It won't be seamless.

Some older players changing teams recently have done ok, Ray Whitney, Eric Cole, Vinny Prospal.

I mean its not like it doesnt happen. We saw Teppo. Like I said, Im not worried so much about year 1 and 2, its year 3 and 4 I would worry about. Might be better off going with a guy that you know what your getting from the start, we know who Doan is as a player. I dont think Ruff would ask Doan to do something he didnt already do.

I get where you're coming from - I just don't accept the opportunity risks.
i just dont see the cap space as much risk... since i dont see any significant free agents coming here until we change the identity of the franchise into a perrenial contender... and that will take close to the life of doan's ridiculous contract.

I also don't see it hindering the franchise in keeping their own, as long as they rightfully let Vanek walk in 2 years.

The biggest risk the Sabres face is the youth movement not developing properly... anything that aids that development is a good move IMO.

dont over think it

bingo...

couple that with the "grooming" affect on the youth...and you have plenty of reason to shovel doan a boatload of cash IMO

When has Doan ever led a domino effect that turned a team into a winner?

Thats a convenient argument since he only played for a cheap organization.

And coming to an organization that has been spending, but perhaps not all that wisely will help matters how?

Woulda, coulda, shoulda.

For that kind of money, I'd rather not bring in a guy that maybe will have this "culture changing" effect.

I'd much rather the Sabres pass and look at next year's culture changer.

Doan would be coming to Buffalo at the same age Doug Gilmour was when the Sabres traded for him. I'm guessing that Doan's "culture changing" effect would be about the same.

Bottom line: not worth that kind of coin.

Why not the Dave Andreychuk affect on the Lightning?

That's more like the Marty, Vinny & Brad effect!

Plus, they didn't give Partychuk a monster contract.

Just like if the Sabres won it would be Miller, Vanek, and Pominville. This team needs a player like Doan in the worst way.

My opinion on Doan hasn't changed -- nice player, would be good to have at the right price. I don't view the reported $7.5M/4yr deal as the right price.
