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.
