I'd rather see Pavel Bure on one leg than Brendan Morrison.

37 this year.

I think BMo is just about done.

Had a good year in 10/11 with Iginla/Tanguay... but last year traded by the Flames after 28 games. Played 39 games last year with 11 points, -5... less than 50% faceoffs and only playing 14 mins/game.

Other UFA centers make better fits for 3rd line:

-Arnott
-Langkow
-Moore

All better options.

Would've been useful a couple years ago when he had a tryout but sadly the coaching staff went another direction.

Even if we were having this conversation a couple of seasons ago, Alain would never.

3rd line of : Raymond-Morrison-Hansen.
they can shut down teams and put up points. i would offer him 1year @ 1mill, then he can retire a canuck

so what do you think would you risk going after him
why not just bring back Nasland and Bertuzzi as well? Morrison is a 4th liner on a bad team at best

I really don't think this has anything to do with the fact he used to play here, but rather that anyone who saw his excursion in Chicago knows he's done in the NHL.

Who wouldn't.

Brendan Morrison is done, and I'd be extremely disappointed if he was penciled in as the third line center for next season, as I wouldn't even like to have him centering the fourth line.

82 percent against Morrison signing.
If he signed a pro try out and was in some preseason games for nostalgia than that may be worth seeing, but man he was not even bad, but down right terrible in Chicago last year.

Missing out on every FA that didn't grow up in BC isn't a story is it? Surely the naptime advice and splendid buffets make up for wreckage like Ballard? Vancouver is a destination team, right? What about the coaching certainty?

At least Gillis isn't on the hook for Doan. Adding age is folly! FFS!

If Gillis really wants to improve the team he must convert assets into useful pieces. Non fits Ballard and Luongo must be converted into promising youngsters that address team weaknesses.

As much as Gillis refuses to acknowledge it, it cannot be denied any longer that the Sedins need a bodygaurd on the ice with them at all times. Kesler's line is not balanced in the traditional sense. Really, the top six is a top four with one guy on both lines! Clone Burrows or make changes!

Gillis might not be the right guy. I think he is proving that, now. His stubborn refusal to play the game has cost the team very harshly. The league is not moving towards his fantasy model! In fact, it is moving away from the Gillis projections! Perhaps it is time to move away from Gillis?

Fire Gillis. Hire Roy. Trade Schnieder and Edler for a top six fix. Ottawa has the pieces to make this work.

Then we don't have a goalie and our defence is terrible. Come up with a better plan

Wow, someone is overreacting...

Getting Doan was a long shot, he wants desperately to stay in Phoenix. As long as Phoenix has a hope of having stable ownership Doan will be a Coyote.

Before Gillis, we weren't getting any FA's, not even the guys from here. I have no idea how anyone could crap on the GM in the middle of the best run in team history. Baffling.

Greetings Nucks fans!

Curious Coyotes fan coming in peace, here.

It was pretty well reported that Vancouver was Shane Doan's second choice behind Phoenix during his free agency. As we all know, he elected to stay home in the Valley.

Since that time the political climate in Glendale has changed fairly significantly and hope for an agreement with our latest potential owner and the City of Glendale is pretty slight. I won't bore you with the details, but there are several enormous hurdles yet to be cleared and soon the will need to be cleared in an extremely hostile environment and without further rent payments made to the NHL. In short: I expect the Coyotes will be relocated. Given the progress made in Quebec, I expect QC will get the team, rather than Seattle who is at least a year behind.

I don't expect Shane Doan will be willing to move to Quebec. I do expect there are three or four other teams he would be willing to move to. Teams like Dallas, Los Angeles, San Jose, and of course..........Vancouver.

Do you guys guess that there would still be interest in Doan, given the way his contract is structured?

If so, what do you think the Canucks would be willing to give up in a trade?

Thanks.

Mind saving us lazy folk from having to look up how his contract ended up being structured? I imagine there would still be interest.

4yrs, 5.3m cap hit

1. 6.05m (2m of this deferred until AFTER his contract expires, which is retirement incentive)
2. 5.55m
3. 5.05m
4. 4.55m

Full NMC.

I don't know that I'd give a lot. I might be willing to move salary for salary (eg. a guy like David Booth or maybe Keith Ballard if we had another deal worked out to replace him) but I wouldn't be keen on giving up prospects and picks to take on that deal - which in my opinion is a substantial risk.

Each year is worth less than the last and I doubt the team and thus Doan would move until at least year two of the deal, more likely year three.

What is Phoenix looking for? Forward help I imagine? It would have to be a largely futures package, given the team's intent to compete now, obviously.

Given how fast the rebuilding clubs have come on I do not disagree with the panic shown in this post. This is our last year to compete for the cup with the current squad. Given that, I would also not be opposed to moving Schneider as I don't see him re-signing here if we are in the midst of a rebuild.

Kesler and Edler are the other chips. For me the panic moment is Edler. If Gillis keeps him for a cup run only to lose him, he is doing this team a tremendous disservice. Either sign him, or move him.

I like the Philly style rebuild better than the Edmonton model, and that involved trading players in their prime. Granted, Edmonton may one day be dominant, but at what price.

Ballard also has value, but it must be seen if Edler can be signed or not. If he can, Ballard can be traded.

Yeah, I'd love to have Doan, but I wouldn't offer a huge package at this point. I assume the management would likely acquiesce and trade him virtually anywhere he wanted after waiting as long as he did to see where Phoenix was going.

A futures package like Schroeder, 2nd, a 1st in 2014 if we make the SCF in any of the next two years, and Ballard(salary reasons).

Something like that is what I'd expect if things go sour.

It's a shame, though as I really like Phoenix as a team, and I hope somehow things work out.

Ballard (as much as I love the guy) is probably a no go, considering the potential log-jam at D.

I'm sure the Nordiques will be looking to throw some money around during Free Agency, so I wouldn't expect a roster player is totally necessary in return. I know Phoenix management was really, really high on Gaunce at the draft, but I'm not sure that'd matter much in this scenario. Obviously Jensen would be tremendously appealing, but I can't believe Vancouver would part with him, at this point.

Also, the deal could potentially be expanded to include guys like David Rundblad, Connor Murphy, Max Goncharov, David Schlemko, Chris Summers, Mike Stone, etc. Looks like you guys are prospect deep on F and we are prospect deep on D. Could make some sense.

Something simple like picks could also work, I suppose.
