Apparently, the Shane Doan insanity has taken over the Rick Nash insanity as a day after it was reported that the Phoenix captain was interested in San Jose and it looked like he was staying in the West, Will DePaoli at Inside Pittsburgh Sports reports that the Penguins are now on his short list.It was also reported yesterday that the Penguins have made an offer to Doan...Have confirmed the #Penguins have made offer to UFA Shane Doan and there is mutual interest. Don't have terms of offer. No timetable.— Shelly Anderson (@pgshelly) July 16, 2012 So this must mean the Rangers are out, right? Wrong. As WGR 550 SportsRadio in Buffalo reports that the Blueshirts have shown some real interest in Doan.They also add that Doan has received confirmed offers from Pittsburgh, Los Angeles, San Jose, Vancouver, Detroit and Buffalo.And how much will the 35-year old cost? Gregg Krupa at the Detroit News says the bidding for Doan might start at $7.5 million per season for four years....officia...

Possible Landing Places for Shane Doan

Throughout his seventeen-year career, Shane Doan has been looked at as one of the most respectable figures in the game of hockey. Doan has spent his entire career with the Phoenix Coyotes, a lackluster franchise to say the least, but still gives the franchise everything he has every night. Despite no owner, minimal money, and a lack of star power, Doan has led the poor franchise...

Doan’s Agent Says Sabres Still In The Running

Don’t take this for more than what it is, but Terry Bross of Lagardere Unlimited did tell me less than an hour ago that the Sabres are still in the running for Shane Doan.  Bross wouldn’t say if Buffalo is willing to do a 4-year deal with his client. “They are still on his list.” Bross said. “Out of respect for the team, I won’t comment on offers made.” Buffalo is...

Locking Up Evander Kane Long Term Will Be Costly, But Winnipeg Can't Afford Lose Rising Star

Ask most Bruins fans, and chances are they'd say Evander Kane's value is priceless. After all he's the guy who delivered this devastating KO to Matt Cooke about a month after the Pittsburgh cheap-shot artist effectively ended Bruins center Marc Savard's career with a blindside hit to the head in 2010. But the Winnipeg Jets have to set an actual value on Kane, a restricted...

NHL Free Agency Rumors: Nash to Holdout; Doan Likes Sharks & Weber Deadline Extended

Aaron Portzline at the Columbus Dispatch wonders if a training camp holdout would be an option for Rick Nash if he's not traded this offseason....that would be an absolutely nightmare scenario for Columbus and their GM Howson. They'd lose what little leverage they might actually still have and the Rangers would probably be able to get Nash for some 1994 memorabilia.In other...

NHL Free Agency: Rangers Last Team Standing for Nash?; Semin Asking for Too Much; 90% Sure Doan Stays; & Weber, Preds Talk Long Term Deal

It's obviously too early...

LINK CITY: Pens make Doan an offer, re-sign Strait, Top 100 radio host

  Two semi-newsworthy things today. 1. Brian Strait signed his qualifying offer of one year, 605k. Strait wasn't terrible last year when he got some play. Could probably see him sneaking into the top 7 on the Pens. [ PG+ ] 2. The Pens apparently offered Shane Doan a contract.
