With Zach Parise and Ryan Suter signed, the attention of the hockey world is on Shane Doan. Doan, 35, is still unsigned but apparently wants to stay in Phoenix. He also wants a multi-year deal. The big question is, if he signs a multi-year deal with the Coyotes, will they still be in Phoenix after next season? With all of the uncertainty of the Coyotes’ future in Phoenix, it’s looking more and more possible that Shane Doan will look elsewhere. If he does, the Canucks will likely be on his shortlist. Doan is from Western Canada and his wife is from Kamloops. He is a part owner of the Kamloops Blazers. If Doan is to change teams, he likely will want to join a team with a chance to win the Stanley Cup. All of these signs point to the Canucks, as well as a few other teams. There’s no doubt that the Canucks will be interested in Doan, but they won’t be alone. It’s probable that all 30 teams in the National Hockey League are interested in Shane Doan. Lots of competition means a higher pr...

Mystery Eastern Conference Team Makes Mega Offer to Shane Doan

Shane Doan appears set to cash in on a mega deal from a mystery team in the Eastern Conference. While we do not know which team submitted an offer to the soon-to-be former Phoenix Coyotes right winger, it is reportedly worth $30 million over the next four years. That would be pretty big money for a player who will turn 36-years-old during the first month of the upcoming NHL...

Shane Doan wants to stay with Coyotes, but huge offers making it tough

Shane Doan has always been more than vocal about the fact that he wants to stay put with the franchise that drafted him.

Shane Doan Won’t Be an Easy Grab for the Toronto Maple Leafs

Shane Doan is a name being mentioned around the NHL quite a bit lately. Doan is a proven winner on the ice, and his hockey resume proves it. He won the Memorial Cup and Stafford Smythe Memorial Trophy (MVP) with Kamloop Blazers in 1995. He netted 17 points in his rookie season in Winnipeg, but [...]

If it's true, then we probably have the high bar in the Doan contract offers, both in terms of length and money offered. Continue reading →

Semin, Doan, Standing Pat

Alexander Semin’s waiting for one thing: Shane Doan.  Once Doan signs, so will Semin.  For less.  If you think it’s his attitude that has kept Ken Holland from signing him already, you’re wrong.  The Wing Way can solve attitude issues and I believe Semin would take a one-year deal to prove the anti-Semintics wrong. But not until the Doan decision is made. Continue reading...

Devils brace for post-Parise era

The New Jersey Devils began life after captain Zach Parise wondering how they replace the leadership, grittiness and production of the guy who had been the heart and soul of their team. Parise, 27, signed a 13-year, $98 million contract with the Minnesota Wild. Two seasons ago, Parise played only 13 games because of a knee injury, and, after he had scored 146 goals over the previous...

Bruins made a play for Parise

The Boston Bruins' offseason of ho-hum continued with the club signing some extra pieces and apparently ready to hit the 2012-13 season with basically the same roster as the one that left the 2012 playoffs in the first round. Oh, and word got out that Boston made an offer to free agent Zach Parise before he signed his 13-year contract to leave the New Jersey Devils and join...

Loyalty Is For (Fantasy) Suckers

A lot of the talk surrounding this summer’s free agent activity has centered on the loyalty, or lack thereof, shown  by players to their long-time employers. Martin Brodeur and the New Jersey Devils renewed their wedding vows with a 2-year contract that will see Brodeur in a Devils’ sweater through his 42nd birthday. Meanwhile, career Phoenix Coyote (dating back to the franchise’s...

A whole new world for Red Wings

Since Ryan Suter and Zach Parise agreed to terms with the Minnesota Wild on Independence Day, the Detroit Red Wings have been reassessing what appears to be their limited options. While the Wings take a long, hard look in the mirror before they begin to implement Plan B, C, D or even E, there's a theory being bandied about as to why the mighty Wings have not fared well in the...

NHL Offseason: Do the New Jersey Devils Have a “Plan B”?

By: Mike Luciano (@MikeLuci) After the dust settled in the wake of 2012 free agent frenzy and the outcome of the Zach Parise sweepstakes, it reflected the continuation of a turbulent offseason for Lou Lamoriello and the New Jersey Devils.

NHL Free Agency Leftovers: Alexander Semin

                By: Joe Veroni  NHL Free Agency has been underway for nearly two weeks and Alexander Semin is still available. He’s the biggest fish left in a very small pond of Unrestricted Free Agents. Zach Parise and Ryan Suter were the consensus top FA prizes on July 1, but Semin is no slouch. Just compare Parise’s career stats to Semin’s and it might be surprising...
