According to Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News, the New York Rangers are a favorite to land Phoenix Coyotes’ Shane Doan. “The Rangers’ strengths include their formidable roster but also Doan’s connections with their coaching staff: Assistant GM/assistant coach Jim Schoenfeld coached Doan for two seasons in Phoenix (1997-98 and 1998-99), with John Tortorella as the assistant. Goaltending coach Benoit Allaire was an assistant for seven years in Phoenix, and assistant coach Mike Sullivan played as Doan’s teammate from 1998 through 2002,” says Leonard. Pittsburgh and Vancouver are the other top-two destinations to land Doan’s services. The Penguins offer the obvious young talent that is capable of winning a Stanley Cup. Vancouver offers a chance to win a Stanley Cup as well as a homecoming for Doan’s wife who grew up in the Vancouver area, according to Leonard. Things are about to get interesting in the next few days. Check out other NHL articles at Next Level Sports Network. Chec...
