Larry Brooks at the New York Post reports that it has become more likely that Shane Doan could be wearing a Blueshirt..."Doan, who understandably wants this to be the last move he makes, is believed to have narrowed his sights on Manhattan, Pittsburgh and Vancouver. It's unclear if Rangers general manager Glen Sather is willing to go four years, but if he does, Doan is more likely than not to become a Blueshirt.At the same time, albeit unlikely, it isn't impossible Doan could accept three years to come to Broadway for a reunion with coach John Tortorella..."...if you're sick of Doan rumors raise your hands....with Doan spending his entire career in the Phoenix organization it's obvious he's not a player who likes to jump from city to city, so it is very unlikely he'll decide to sign a three year deal....however, if he does surprise and is willing to take a shorter deal to come to the Rangers, let's hope Sather holds out the way he did with Nash ...

Yes, the Shane Doan talk is beginning to get dragged out to an extent where it's a tad bit annoying to continuously read about. However, the New York Rangers' strong interest in the 35-year-old winger is not going away anytime soon, nor is the mutual interest from the other side.  We all know by now that the Blueshirts and Doan, in some capacity, would like to work out...

Doan Doing Everything He Can Do To Stay In Phoenix

Still Slow In The Hockey News Department

So slow that I’ve read stories today about five teams still have an interest in Bobby Ryan.  Funny, I would think 29 teams would have an interest in him. Another story, Shane Doan narrows decision down to three teams.  Really, I believe Doan when he says he will do everything to remain in Phoenix, but when his agent talks, and notice, he hasn’t in over a week, anything goes...
