According to a tweet from David Pollak of the San Jose Mercury News, the Sharks are no longer in the running for Shane Doan as he has made it clear he wants to sign a deal that is longer than three years.
The Sharks reportedly would only offer Doan three-years and $4.5 million per season.
In a poll asked over the weekend, 44.23% of readers said that their preference to sign Doan to a three-year deal is based upon the cap hit he would bring. 39.68% of readers said that they would sign him to a three-year deal and 16% said No.
69% of readers said that they would sign Doan to a three-year deal worth $5 million per season.
81% of readers said that they would not give Doan the reported four years and $30 million that he is seeking.
