According to Sarah McLellan of the Arizona Republic, Shane Doan’s camp hasn’t heard from prospective Coyotes owner Greg Jamison recently and is planning to make a list of teams that he is interested in joining.
His agent says that Doan is just preparing for any option and that his first choice is to remain with the Coyotes, “When we get the news, whether it’s good or bad, at least we’ll be prepared. Otherwise we’ll have to take a week to make a decision. If we find out it doesn’t happen, then we’re behind the 8-ball trying to go visit teams and make a decision.”
Doan visited the Rangers and Flyers over the weekend while on the East coast for the NHLPA and NHL labor meetings.
Doan and his agent expected to hear from Jamison last week but did not.
Doan has visited the Rangers and Flyers so far in his search for a new team.
In the NY Post, Larry Brooks writes that the Rangers plan isn’t to sign Shane Doan OR trade for Rick Nash, the plan is to try and acquire them both.
Brooks writes “Know this: It isn’t either Doan or Nash for the Rangers. It is, on Sather’s blueprint, Doan and Nash.”
He writes that the Rangers are a favorable landing spot for Doan if he leaves Phoenix.
At Rangers Report, Carp writes about Shane Doan and how he thinks he could fit in with the Rangers.
He writes, “I think he would fit very, very nicely into the Rangers; into their identity, into their leadership group. He could play on their second line, no problem. He could theoretically play on their first line if they don’t make another major move.”
Carp writes though that the wouldn’t go anywhere near the reported four year deal worth $7.5 million per season, but would give Doan a two-year deal around $6 million per season.
According to John Gambadoro of Arizona radio station 620 KTAR, Shane Doan met with Rangers officials today in his first meeting with another team.
Doan was in New York for the CBA talks.
Gambadoro tweeted recently that the Rangers were showing “real interest” in Doan and that “If the Phoenix Coyotes weren’t worried about losing their captain before, they should be now.”
Doan didn’t rule out NY as a place to play when he spoke with the media yesterday.
Doan played under Jim Schoenfeld and John Tortorella in Phoenix and was teammates with assistant coach Mike Sullivan.
Adam Rotter: To me, this was a meeting out of convenience as Doan was in the area for CBA talks and the Rangers are very interested in him. I think he has interest in becoming a Ranger, otherwise he wouldn’t have taken the meeting, but he will also likely be meeting with the Canucks, Kings, Penguins and Red Wings. The Rangers have made their push for Doan and they will have to see what the next step is.
