Shane Doan #19 of the Phoenix Coyotes looks on before taking on the Los Angeles Kings in Game Five of the Western Conference Final during the 2012 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs at Jobing.com Arena on May 22, 2012 in Phoenix, Arizona.
(May 21, 2012 – Source: Christian Petersen/Getty Images North America) The rumors just will not die. If you have followed the Shane Doan saga over the past couple of months, you’ve probably heard about at least eight or nine teams who are reportedly interested in signing ‘Captain Coyote’ if he chooses to leave Phoenix. One of those teams that has been mention has been the Buffalo Sabres. Buffalo has been reported as not being on Doan’s shortlist of teams that he would sign with, but that doesn’t mean the interest isn’t there from the Sabres. According to former player and current analyst Jeremy Roenick, Buffalo has made a huge money offer to Doan, but as of now the deal hasn’t been accepted. With so much uncertainty regarding the future of the NHL due to ongoing CBA (Collective Bargaining Agreement) negotiations, it makes sense why Doan hasn’t signed a deal with anyone. The league as a whole has seemingly already shut down due to labor uncertainty. Doan would bring a veteran and leadership role to a team that hasn’t had that type of presence since the days of Chris Drury and Danny Briere. The odds of the Sabres landing Doan remain slim, at best. However, if it were to happen, it would be a move that brings legitimacy back to the organization both on and off the ice.
