Around 5 if it's not for too long. Doan would fit nicely in the group and we'd be able to move an offensive forward on the 3rd line

Max I'd give is 6m, but would obviously prefer lower.

As much as Gomez's salary cap.

This is Montreal guys. You want a free agent you have to pay them more mostly because of the inflated tax rate.

Max 3 years @ 6 million per year.

The priority after PK is Patches and DD and in all honesty I would get those two under contract this summer than wait until their value goes higher.

DD will be a UFA and Max an RFA!

For Doan 3 years at 5, only because we have number of good RWers coming up.

Now if we can get rid of 2 out of the 3 lousy contracts we all know about.... Maybe 3 6 million

That what Doan at 4 @ 7.5 million which is "rumored" is not a fit for us no matter how much we want him.

I'm more concerned with term and cap hit than actually salary.

To answer the question, I don't think he's worth over $5M per. Anything else over is gross over payment.

More money & less term or less money & more term

Nothing more than 4 years or more than 6M.

I'm not concerned about money, I'm concerned about term. We have $7.5M we can knock off the cap if and when we please. But if we throw a 4 year deal at Doan at the same cap hit (say we bury Gomez), that's a cap hit we can't do anything about--its permanent.

assuming that he's adamant about getting 3-4 years... not a penny over 6M$.

even that seems too much, 4yrs @ 5M or 3 years @ 5.5M would be reasonable, but doubt that we have the winning bid at that price.

5.5

he'll get 6+, but not with the Habs anyway.
Giving 6m to a 35yo, who wont likely score more than 20-25goals and 50-55pts doesnt sound like such a good idea.

I'm not really convinced that the Habs need Shane Doan right now.

4 to 5 M/year sounds about right.

It's not the amount that's an issue. It's the length. 3 or 4 years is out of the question.

Which doesn't mean the maximum we're willing to pay is much higher.

Max I'd offer him is 6.5m for 2 years, 5.5m for 3 and 4m for 4 years. Doan's value is going to go down dramatically every year. He's probably a 6m player for the next two years but chances are he's going to be a 3rd liner pretty soon.

Well for one year I would go as far as 7,5 millions. The time frame should be said.
