How much more patience can Doan afford with Coyotes?

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- As the Coyotes opened the preseason on Monday at Gila River Arena against the Los Angeles Kings, it was tempting to ponder the divergent paths these franchises have taken since they met in the Western Conference Final in 2012.
