Offers keep rolling in for Shane Doan

Jul 13, 2012, 5:36 PM | Updated: 6:50 pm

Shane Doan has made no secret of his desire to stay with
the Phoenix Coyotes, provided they remain in Arizona.

Though the prospective sale of the team to former San Jose
Sharks CEO Greg Jamison appears to be moving forward, Doan
knows he must at least be prepared in case he has to move
on.

And, as it turns out, it appears the rest of the NHL is
readying for that prospect, too.

Arizona Sports 620’s John Gambadoro is reporting the
Coyotes’ captain will not be short on suitors should he
decide to leave the desert.

Makes sense, because what contender wouldn’t want a
player of Doan’s caliber on the roster? Sure, he’s 35
years old, but the veteran is coming off a season where he
tallied 50 points and 48 PIM, leading the Coyotes to the
Western Conference Final.

So yeah, he’s still got it.

That’s a a considerable sum, though it’s tough to say how
much more or less that is compared to what the Coyotes
would offer. But again, it really seems like it will come
down to one thing for Doan, and it has nothing to do with
how this next deal affects his bank account.
