According to the Vancouver Province, via Rory, the Vancouver Canucks offer for Shane Doan will likely top out at $6.1 million per year as that is the number that the Sedin twins make and it is unlikely that Doan would get a higher cap hit than they have.
Vancouver is hoping that it’s location and presence in Doan’s life will draw him there.
The report says that the Rangers are willing to match the four-year offer worth $30 million that the Buffalo Sabres have on the table for Doan.
According to Sarah McLellan of the Arizona Republic, Shane Doan’s agent Terry Bross says that Doan will sign a new contract, with Phoenix or somewhere else, before the CBA expires on September 15th.
Bross told McLellan, “(Ownership 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, so we want to make sure we sign before then.”

In the Arizona Republic, Sarah McLellan writes that the CBA is the latest that is holding up Shane Doan.
Don Maloney said “I don’t foresee a lot happening around here right now.”
On the ownership situation and Doan, Maloney told McLellan “It’s still trending positively. We’re still very optimistic about it. Once that happens, hopefully we can re-sign Shane to a deal that works for both of us.”
