This was the rumor posted from the Ottawa Sun's Bruce Garrioch:
Phoenix captain Shane Doan is reportedly looking for a four-year, $30-million deal to leave the Coyotes. The talk is the Penguins are prepared to put a four-year, $24-million deal on the table if they haven’t already.
Few things about this, first off. Garrioch is the same guy who predicted "Malkin to the Kings" however many years ago. And this whole rumor wasn't even the subject of the article. Such a Trib thing to do.
The first reaction of the mention of Doan getting a 4-year contract is that feeling you get when your significant other invites someone over to your house when you had your mind set on just relaxing by yourself for the night and not having to put on some kind of show.
Then again, at the end of the night, most of the time you're like, "Well, that wasn't so bad."
Shane Doan could be the same. The breakdown of the good and bad after the jump.
