Shane Doan Sets Friday Deadline Regarding Coyotes Ownership Situation And Future Playing Career

Published on July 27, 2012 by   ·   1 Comment

Reports are surfacing that free agent forward Shane Doan has set a Friday deadline to talk to the potential new owner of the Phoenix Coyotes to determine whether or not he gets a good feeling from Greg Jamison. If he feels that there is a good vibe and that Jamison can build a winner in Phoenix, then Doan would be inclined to sign an extension with the only team he has known over his 16 year NHL career.

If he does not, well, then it is time to move on to a new franchise to finish out his career as he continues his quest for a Stanley Cup championship.

One team we can apparently cross of Doan’s list, however, is the Detroit Red Wings.

It is being reported that the Red Wings have said that a mystery team in the Eastern Conference offered Doan ‘ridiculous amounts of money.’ Apparently, Detroit is not about to do the same, as they had hoped to land Doan for a three year deal worth roughly $15 million. At least one team was rumored to have offered Doan a for year deal worth around $30 million.

But nothing has come to fruition thus far, and it is mainly because of Doan. He even admits that it is his fault, and this has all dragged on for far too long. But he now appears ready to make a decision one way or another, at least in terms of whether or not he still wants to negotiate with the Coyotes.

So with Detroit out of the equation, who else is still likely in on Doan, provided he decides it is time to move on from his days in Phoenix?

The New York Rangers remain interested in Doan, even after trading for Rick Nash. Nash has ties to many in the Rangers’ organization, and New York is actually still under the salary cap as it stands right now.

But the Philadelphia Flyers also have to still be talking to Doan, having missed out on almost every marquee free agent target this offseason. Philly has missed on Zach Parise, Ryan Suter, Shea Weber and countless others. While they may prefer to make a trade for a player such as Bobby Ryan of the Anaheim Ducks instead of pursuing yet another free agent, never count out the Flyers, who have demonstrated they are willing to shell out big bucks for top flight free agents.

As for other teams, the Pittsburgh Penguins could still be in the mix, as could the Buffalo Sabres and Montreal Canadiens. If Doan does favor remaining in the Western Conference, expect some offers from the likes of the Los Angeles Kings, Vancouver Canucks and San Jose Sharks.

Either way, it appears as if we may finally start to find out a little more after today regarding the future of Doan.
