Yes... cause signing Burrows to a solid contract and signing Garrison is horrible...

Not to mention Weber and Doan were longshots.

4 yrs,$21.2 for Doan to stay in Phx.$2 mil in bonus will be deferred until after contract expires.$1 mil in 2016-2017 and $1 mil year after.

Jesus that team is brokety broke broke.

Welp. Lu will be gone for a top 6er now, at least that much is clear.

What's most upsetting is knowing that we're going in to the season with the same crop of forwards who can't score in the playoffs.

Gillis has failed to address that, badly.

How do you suppose they do it? Short of hog tying Doan and forcing him to play for us. Everyone knew he wanted to stay in Phoenix. Excluding him there really wasn't anyone that would address our scoring needs.

As did almost everyone else in this THIRTY team league.

I think "failure" is played a bit fast and loose in the sports fan world.

Gillis has added players throughout the lineup (Higgins, Lapierre, Booth, Sammy etc.) that have improved the team while Nonis added guys in the bottom of the lineup that shouldn't have been in the league. There is no comparison.

Because this summer was the only time he could have addressed that.

The only way Doan was leaving was if the Coyotes weren't staying (as we all know)... If their house was burned down, Doan is probably a Canuck... But, his house is still standing, by what looks like a little more than a thread, but it's still there... Gillis could have offered $1 mill more per year, and I don't think it would have changed Doan's decision to stay... Completely out of Gillis' control...

Before anyone starts moaning too much about this "failed" offseason, realize that it probably isn't ending until September 2013....

The thing that boggles my mind is that it's not even close to a failed offseason. We have some scoring issues, sure, but name me a team that doesn't have an issue on their roster. It's the life of the cap era. Every team has holes. We have a fantastic team and we added a top 4 defenceman this offseason and lost nobody. It's ridiculous to suggest we've had a poor offseason.

Want a poor offseason? Look at Nashville. Look at Detroit. Those teams are the ones that should be worrying.

Even the scoring issues are slightly overblown.

According to Doan's agent it was a last second decision.

Wouldn't have wanted him for that long.

Cool that he is staying with that franchise but I hope he doesn't mind retiring on a loser.

I'm not that upset. Between the owners insisting the cap go down and the players not wanting a salary rollback, our cap outlook isn't great. The addition of another big contract could have made a real mess, especially if Lu can't be moved soon. I'm not sure adding Doan would be that much of a win if we had to dump significant assets with no return as a consequence.

It's things like this, they should just keep to themselves... What's next, he was about to dial Gillis' number, when at the last number, hung up the phone?

Spare the bloody details! Holy ****... Rub salt in the wound...

Oh, you still think we can a top 6 forward for free during the season?

We could have gotten Doan for free now. No team will give us a top 6 for free during the season.

...

Doan wasn't for free. Doan was for 5M.

I don't understand your logic, I really don't.

Lot of "the sky is falling" ... I miss westcoaster pointing out 15 consecutive losing seasons to the whiney glass is half empty crowd here ...

We went to game 7 of the SCF and 2 PT ... I want a SC as much as anyone, but you would think we were the TML ....

How do you suggest we could have changed Doan's mind about wanting to stay in Phoenix, and if we couldn't, then why complain as if we could have? It is what it is.

Well, for starters the Aquillinis could've built a massive greenhouse over the city of Vancouver, covered it in sand and added some desert flora and fauna, convincing him it was Nuevo Phoenix. Next, they could have mowed down half of Yaletown to make room for Doan's horses right next to the arena. Furthermore, they could have and should have traded Kesler and the twins in order to lock Shane up for an unprecedented max contract for the next 11 years.

If Doan took 5x4 to stay in Phoenix how much do you all thinking would've made him come to Vancouver? Probably way too much.
