You add a guy like Doan whenever you can.
Do you want him? My God, yes. His scoring might be down a bit over the last few years but he was never a big scorer. He is a warrior and that part of his game has only gotten better. Remember he has been playing with linemates like Daymond Lankgkow and Lee Stempniak the past few years. His value is going hard into the corners, hitting people hard and at playoff time, he turns it up three notches. He can bomb it from the right point on the power play. And even if his scoring tails off, he will still be a substantial player. He's got a lot of Mark Messier in him, starting with body type.
I don't want to see Shane go to the Rangers because I want the Coyotes to stay here and I want him to finish his career here but if he is available, you have got to sign him.
