Doan was close to being a Flyer
 
"How close was Shane Doan to becoming a Flyer? Close enough for the organization to mock up a couple jerseys for the 36-year-old forward: one with No. 18, another with No. 91.

And, apparently, close enough for his agent, Terry Bross, to post a photo of the sweaters hanging in the Flyers' locker room at Skate Zone on Instagram with the caption, “So glad this didn’t happen. It came close though.” (No. 19, which Doan wears in Phoenix, is currently owned by Scott Hartnell here in Philadelphia.)"

Doan was as close to becoming a Flyer as he was a Canuck, Sabre, or King. He entertained the thought, but he had no real intention on leaving the Coyotes

Meh....I'm more bothered by how close we came to having Weber. I wonder how really close Doan was to signing though. Not sure the jersey is all that much proof of an imminent signing...

The jerseys themselves aren't proof of anything we didn't already know, but the fact that Doan's agent singled out the Flyers after the signing (when he had no longer had anything to gain by doing so) seems significant.

Speaking of Weber, to bad we didn't offer sheet him before Suter signed in Min, we could have slipped some cash under the table for those guys to keep their deal hush hush for a while

I doubt Weber Signs without Suter leaving first..

#18 looks wrong without "RICHARDS" above it.

I actually don't think Doan would've been that much of an addition.
Rather develop Simmer.

This makes me wonder if Homer was the one who offered the rumored contract with a $7M cap hit to Doan.

Speaking of Weber:

Did he ever sign the contract with Nashville?

Back on topic:

I would have loved Doan on the Flyers, not like it matters now, but I'd like to know what Holmgren was offering?

CC96 11-29-2012 04:08 AM

Wow! I find this very interesting since I thought he was going to sign with the Canucks if things didn't work out in Phoenix. Thanks for sharing
