The Vancouver Province believes the question isnít still are the Canucks on Shane Doanís short list - the question now for Vancouver is how many years are the Canucks willing to commit to Doan to stay on his short list?

What has become clear by the offers which are already in is a three-year deal, the lowest term heíd even consider, is not going to be enough to land Doan.

To stay competitive, itís going to take at least a four-year offer, something the Canucks would probably do.
