Sunday Larry Brooks of the New York Post reported that free agent forward Shane Doan cut his list of destinations to three teams, Pittsburgh, the New York Rangers and Vancouver. This is obviously concerning for some Wings fans who were still holding out hope that Holland would continue to make a pitch for the veteran forward.
However according to Mike Sunnucks of the Phoenix Business Journal, the Brooks report isn’t accurate.
Despite the still unresolved ownership issues in Phoenix, Sunnucks says it’s still possible the Coyotes re-sign their captain. Sunnucks also goes on to say that the Los Angeles Kings, San Jose Sharks, Detroit Red Wings and Philadelphia Flyers all remain in the running if he does decide to leave the desert.
Bottom line though it still seems like Doan is going to re-sign with the Coyotes and later become a trade candidate come the deadline.
