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 "Semin, Doan, Standing Pat"

Jan Levine: Semin - A Look Behind the Numbers, Should the Rangers Make an Offer?

As we continue to wait and wait and then wait some more for any type of resolution on Nash, Yandle and Doan, speculation turns to who else the Rangers could look to acquire and/or sign with Alexander Semin receiving prominent mention. If you believe what Pierre McGuire and Marc Crawford said on TSN’s Free Agency Xmas (otherwise known as July 1), Semin is a coach killer and one...

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.

He's beloved by the fans, and he wants to stay in the city he calls home. He's lived there for sixteen years,...

Lack of Interest in Alexander Semin Not As Mysterious As His Enigmatic Play, But Skilled Forward Should Find Work Soon

Normally, a player with a 40-goal campaign and two other 30-goal seasons on his resume would be a pretty hot commodity in NHL free agency. Zach Parise, who has topped the 40-goal mark once and reached 30 four other times, had just about every team after him on July 1 and ended up inking a 13-year, $98 million deal to head home to Minnesota. Shane Doan, who has never reached the 40...

John Jaeckel: Significant Offer To Doan

Follow me @jaeckel Just hearing the Hawks have made or are prepared to make a very significant offer to Shane Doan, both in terms of average annual value and term. Without going into the specifics, both variables are likely at the high end of what any team would offer the free agent forward.

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...

Todd Cordell: Alex Semin is Better Than You Think + Notes on Krys Barch and Shane Doan

Alex Semin is undoubtedly the most talented player left in free agency, but he's also the most criticized. Some of it he deserves, but he takes a lot of crap he doesn't deserve. Here are some notes on Semin, the possibility of Shane Doan ending up with a division rival and more. - As you all know, I'm a fan of Semin and I think he's a damn good hockey player. Sure...

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...

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.
