Shane Doan's agent sets deadline, Canucks still in running

Quote:
A big NHL free-agent domino is expected to finally fall.

While several suitors, including the Vancouver Canucks, have patiently waited while Shane Doan hopes the Phoenix Coyotes ownership picture can be resolved so the club's long-serving captain can remain in the desert, his agent Terry Bross has changed the timeline.

A looming Sept. 15 lockout could create uncertainty how long-term contracts of players 35 and older will be affected. Under the current collective bargaining agreement, multi-year deals to those players count against the salary cap in the second year, even if a player is inactive. Hence a deadline, finally.

"[It has to] be done before the 15th, otherwise we're signing somewhere because we don't know what the new CBA is going to look like and I don't know if it's going to limit any scope of a contract," Bross told the Arizona Republic. "We want to make sure we sign before then. I guess in that respect, time is ticking."

While prospective Coyotes owner Greg Jamison has been searching for an additional US$20 million to complete the Coyotes purchase, as many as 16 teams have shown interest in Doan. The biggest offer has been a four-year, $30 million contract from the Buffalo Sabres - one the New York Rangers have said they will match and one the Philadelphia Flyers must be wary of - but the Canucks are counting on the right playing environment and Doan's provincial ties to help sway the durable 35-year-old winger.

The Pittsburgh Penguins and Nashville Predators are also among the top pursuers but Doan has only visited with the Rangers, Flyers and Canucks.

The Canucks have made an offer and it's not a stretch to suggest that the $6.1-million cap hit for Henrik and Daniel Sedin is the bar. If so, the Canucks would have to hope that other factors - a cosmopolitan city to raise his four children, a competitive club and proximity to Kamloops where Doan honed his junior hockey skills, met his wife and became part owner of the WHL Blazers - in the end are more important than more money.

Doan's durability, leadership and ability to raise his game in the post-season are coveted by the Canucks who lack a true power forward.

Although he turns 36 in October, Doan has missed just 15 games the last five seasons and is coming off 22 goals and 50 points last season. There is risk in a player of that age staying on the books if he retires before a multi-year deal expires, but Doan isn't wired that way and could probably play into his late 30s.

It would also help resolve the Canucks' ongoing search for another top-six forward and would offer flexibility if such a deal came to fruition. If could allow Alex Burrows, who's in talks regarding a contract extension, to play on the second line if coach Alain Vigneault believes Doan would bring a needed grit and skill element to the top line.

It would allow for a different return on an eventual Roberto Luongo trade - perhaps needed youth and depth - if the Canucks believe that UFA centre Jason Arnott, 37, might be a good one-year fit on the third line and can eat up second-line minutes until Ryan Kesler returns from off-season shoulder and wrist surgeries.

Hey guys, I spotted this on Georgia Straight... Jason Garrison will be a celebrity judge at the BBQ & Chili event in Gastown this weekend... maybe there would be a chance to meet him or sign something? Who knows...

I'm not sure if this has been mentioned in this thread or others. I pre-ordered NHL 13 at EB Games and they told me at the Metrotown location at midnight, there's going to be Canucks player(s) there for the release. Any word who *might* be there?

Garrison is doing everything he can for this community, must be him to meet and greet gaining new fans. Don't know who else is in town that would be doing signings since NHL is going to be locked out.

New nickname for Garrison = the heart of a canuck

Nah. The NHL13 launch is EA sponsored. So the regional cover boy will sign it. Sure as hell I don't want any Canuck signing my collectors edition with the cup on it

NHL's proposal is interesting. First year of the proposal pushes the cap to $58M. I think sixteen teams would be over, especially the Rangers.

Rangers are actually in an amazing cap situation at just a tad over $58mil now, with over $11mil in cap space under the current cap. They have a lot of contributing good young talent on ELC and cheaper contracts.

Vancouver would be trouble with a $58mil cap.

I'm sure the caphits get rolled back, so it'll be relative. The only concerns for players would be whether they'll be allowed to keep the salary the same

Careful, last year's midnight launch and player signing as a joke. Don't be surprised if you wait in line for hours and not end up getting what you were supposed to get.

I think salaries take the same amount of percentage roll back as the cap drops.

How can they roll back salaries when it's a signed contract?

I can't remember last week let alone 2004. What did they do then when they implemented the salary cap? Or was there any teams that were over the salary cap.
