Shane Doan frustrated with Coyotes situation

Jun 21, 2012, 8:59 PM | Updated: 10:19 pm

Of all the professional athletes that play in Phoenix,
Coyotes’ captain Shane Doan has been here the longest.

Doan moved with the Winnipeg Jets as a 19-year-old in
1996. Sixteen years later, Doan is still in the Valley.
But as a free agent, his address could change very soon,
depending on the franchise’s tenuous ownership situation.

The 16-year veteran joined Burns and Gambo Thursday on
Arizona Sports 620 and talked about his desire to stay
with the Coyotes and the uncertainty that goes along with
his upcoming decision.

“They have been unbelievably open and honest and great
with me and I can’t say enough about how good they’ve
been,” Doan said. “And yet their hands are so tied with
the whole stumbling block that keeps popping up with the
team, and that is frustrating.”
