Found July 12, 2012 on Pro Sports Daily:
The New York Rangers continue to make moves to fill in the second-tier holes on their roster. The vacancies were left by the defections of a handful of key role players from the team that lost to the New Jersey Devils in the Eastern Conference finals. All along, the Blueshirts and their fans have had their eyes on something significantly grander. While the waiting game continues in trade discussions with the Columbus Blue Jackets for star winger Rick Nash, the Rangers also are among several NHL teams to have expressed interest in Phoenix Coyotes captain Shane Doan in free agency. Rangers coach John Tortorella and top assistant Jim Schoenfeld were members of the Coyotes' coaching staff early in the free agent forward's career in the late 1990s. "We haven't entered into negotiations with any other teams, but Shane wants to be forthright and honest with clubs that have contacted us, and so we've let these clubs know whether there is mutual interest," Doan&...

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. The last member of the Coyotes who also played for the Winnipeg Jets, Doan is the team's captain and centering force in the locker room. He's beloved by the fans, and he wants to stay in the city he calls home. He's lived there for sixteen years, so...

Report: Shane Doan Gets 4-Year, $30 Million Offer From Eastern Conference Team

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 →

Red Wings don’t mind playing the waiting game with Doan

MLive’s Phillip Zaroo spoke to Red Wings GM Ken Holland about a certain Shane Doan and the fact that, well, his agent claims that Doan’s interested in playing for every team in the frickin’ universe, and that his “deadline” for actually considering free agent offers keeps on getting pushed back and pushed back. Given the silly level of sales pitching going on, the Wings...

NHL Free Agency: Where Will Shane Doan Go?

Captain Coyote Shane Doan could be on the move this offseason. By Rhys Richards (@RREsq) This free agency season in the NHL is most notable for its lack of big name signings. While the forward and defensive classes were thin going into July 1, the biggest names have taken their time signing contracts. The Zach Parise and Ryan Suter saga lasted almost four days as the NHL, its teams...

Canucks in hot pursuit of Shane Doan… at least they should be

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...

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...

Red Wings morning news: on the waiting game, prospect camp and the Wild’s Ilitch?

You and I already know that the Red Wings are playing the free agency waiting game as the marketplace has slowed to a crawl, and just as importantly, the Wings’ management has chosen to wait for free agents’ asking prices to drop and/or teams’ asking prices for defensemen to slide back down from the stratosphere before adding a defenseman and possibly a goal-scoring forward...

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...
