That being said, it's either a Pacific team or Eastern Conference (anyone else think it would be awesome to see him play for the Jets?).
I bet DW structures a deal such that IF the Coyotes stay in Phoenix, then Doan gets traded back for nominal value. There'd be no sense to keep him if Phoenix stays.

That would win some brownie points with other vets around the league.
