I'm hearing that things are really heating up on the Alexander Semin front and Detroit, Pittsburgh, Chicago and New Jersey have gotten down to brass tacks with serious offers for the controversial Capitals free agent. Also, on the Shane Doan front, a Flyers source has told me that the club has had talks with the Doan camp to gauge interest but has not YET made a formal offer. More to come...

Red Wings morning report: on courting Doan, the Semin rumor and prospect talk

The Red Wings and almost a dozen other NHL teams will begin pursuing a prototypical power forward today, someone who can add size, grit and especially goal-scoring acumen to the equation…And his name is Shane Doan. The Free Press’s Helene St. James isn’t sure whether Doan is really willing to leave Phoenix, despite his declaration that the potential ballot initiative designed...

Rangers Still Pursuing Shane Doan

Last week I reported that GM Glen Sather and the New York Rangers had sincere interest in Phoenix Coyotes captain and current unrestricted free agent Shane Doan. Regardless if the interest was mutual between the two parties, Doan, at the time, would not make a decision on whether or not he will be talking to teams other than the Coyotes about signing a contract that will last him...

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...

Mike Augello: Don’t Hold Your Breath For Doan

According to an article in yesterday’s Toronto Star, the Maple Leafs have made preliminary inquiries about veteran free agent winger Shane Doan, along with about half the league. According to Doan’s agent Terry Bross, who appeared on the FAN 590’s Prime Time Sports Monday afternoon, indicated that the 35 year old team captain of the Phoenix Coyotes has received...

Eklund: Is Shane Doan 2012's version of Ron Francis circa:1990? Halpern to NYR

Just a quick addition to the Shane Doan talk today..... It is being reported Doan has anywhere from 10-17 teams expressing interest. The Arizona Republic list The Penguins, Kings, and Red Wings as where Doan would consider signing if he does decide to leave town. it's a list I concur with completely. And while I am sure the Flyers, Rangers, Hawks, Sabres, and Leafs...

Count(ing) on Doan

Only 2-3 teams would warrant serious interest on Doan’s part, Bross said. Location, management/players and Cup chances are all factors.— Sarah McLellan (@azc_mclellan) July 9, 2012 Based on tweets from @pgshelly, @reallisa and @HeleneStJames, those three teams could be Pittsburgh, LA and Detroit.— Sarah McLellan (@azc_mclellan) July 9, 2012 According to Shane Doan’s agent...

Eklund: Where will Doan end up?

While the rest of the prominent members of the NHL's free agent crop (minus Teemu Selanne) has already signed a new contract or has been considering offers, Phoenix Coyotes captain Shane Doan has been patiently waiting for something that is out of his hands. He's been waiting on the status of a petition deadline in Glendale, Ariz. to force a November referendum tied to...

Todd Cordell: Alex Semin is Better Than You Think + Notes on Krys Barch and Shane Doan

Alex Semin is undoubtedly the most talented player left in free agency, but he's also the most criticized. Some of it he deserves, but he takes a lot of crap he doesn't deserve. Here are some notes on Semin, the possibility of Shane Doan ending up with a division rival and more. - As you all know, I'm a fan of Semin and I think he's a damn good hockey player. Sure...

Richard Cloutier: Dream a Little Dream

K, I'm gonna day dream now. It was 35c here at one point today (39c with humidity, which might not sound like much for you people from the south, but in Northern Alberta, anything over 20c is hot). On a hot day, you can't really accomplish much. Just day dream. What if the Oilers actually signed Shane Doan? It's not impossible: Doan is local, after all, and the Coyotes...

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...
