I still think Doan is a better fit for the Devils than another year of Petr Sykora or even taking a chance on Kristian Huselius... but I don't see him signing for anything less than 2 years and too much money. If his demands are actually reasonable and he believes the Devils could compete this year, I'd welcome him.

There's no way the Devils' offer would be as competitive as, say, Detroit's or Pittsburgh's, though. And in Pitt he really could be the next Ray Bourque, walking onto a team loaded with talent as-is.

let sykora go somewhere else, he's too soft as is Huselius. How good is Semin on the wall?

Players still haven't got the message that playing for an organization like the Devils increases their value come free agent time.

Great leadership and not a bad player. If the price is right I have no problem.

Word is Doan's agent has made inquiries with the Red Wings. I'm pretty confident he'll end up there.

If he doesn't sign in PHO, this is def the place I'd put my money on. It's the perfect destination for a career western conferencer who wants a Cup.

Doan probably wants a contract that will last until retirement. If NJ got him, I could see Rolston all over again. Put him on the Penguins with Crosby or Malkin and he can probably overachieve longer than he would anywhere else.

If that is true then I assume that would take them out of the running for the Semin sweepstakes.

It might, but the buzz on the internets is Semin is close to signing with Pittsburgh. So that still leaves us in the lurch.

His agent is ridiculous trying to crank the price With all those reports about "mutual interest" with teams and doan...

I swear to god ive seen and read reports coming from his agent or teams saying that they were interested in doan and that he was also interested... Ridiculous.

Red wings, sharks, habs, pens, avs, cannucks, hawks... They all have interest and doan have interest in them... What a whore

He has to create a market for Doan just like Marty's agent needed to do in order to pry the 2nd year out of the Devils. What I don't understand is, if he is that married to his current team, then why doesn't he sign a 1 year deal to stay in Phoenix as they are not moving prior to the 2012-13 season no matter what happens with the potential new owner. It's probably not in his best interest $$ wise, but sometime players take less money to play somewhere they really want to with their new BFF in tow as we all have come to find out recently. :whistling:

We have leaders in our locker room already, but I wouldn't mind him being a stop gap measure for a year or 2 in our top 6, but I highly doubt he comes here. As much as I'd like Tedenby to step up and grab a top 6 spot, I just think he's too small, has a poor shot, and is not physical enough to play the role he needs to on this team.

Because his last season might be the best season of the rest of his career. It's very likely he could get lower offers as he enters his late 30's.

Exactly. If he signed a 1 yr deal and put up sh!t numbers, he would be toast for the next contract. Too much to risk for him at this age to sign a 1 year deal.

Shane Doan, is no longer accepting offers...for now.

http://www.nhl.com/i...vid=DL|NHL|home

Shane Doan is willing to give the Phoenix Coyotes until next Monday before he starts considering other options available to him in free agency.

Doan originally set a July 9 deadline to get a new multi-year contract done with the Coyotes. His initial deadline coincided with when he was hoping to get more clarity on Greg Jamison's bid to purchase the Coyotes.

However, the deadline came and went without any more clarity on the ownership situation. Doan, though, isn't ready to give up on the Coyotes, so, according to Fox Sports Arizona, the longtime Phoenix captain has set a new deadline for July 16.

Imagine if it's us? Lmao. (Which it most likely isn't.)

EDIT:

Hockey Buzz Єklund (2.3% accurate) ‏@Єklund (2.3% accurate)

The Flyers are Confirmed NOT the alleged eastern Team who made a 4 year/ $30M offer to Shane Doan.

So based on the way Єklund (2.3% accurate) worked where he says the opposite of what is true...he's going to the Flyers! :lol:
