I can't quite recall the source, but it was from a sports broadcast on a TV station (CHCH, maybe?).  Anyway, the report was that Buffalo was rumoured to have offered Doan 4yrs / $30M. 

If this is even remotely true, well, I'm not even sure what to say.

I heard this too.  They are trying to top their Leino deal from last year.

In some ways this one would be better than that, but, in other ways, worse. I mean, Doan is a more proven, better and more consistent player than Leino. But, at the same time, this would be an even more significant overpayment and a 35+ contract. It would make them a little better on the ice, but, it would hurt them so much more in terms of the cap.

The Leafs could help them out trading low cost Franson for that bum Tyler Myers who is slated to make $12 MIL this year with a $5.5 cap hit.

Come on, Buffalo sign Doan and dump Myers!!

Bulldog, you've obviously got your hands on some good stuff but it's time to back away from the pipe!  ;) ;) ;)
