While this is true, if Shane Doan really wants to get out of Phoenix if their ownership situation doesn't stabilize then he won't have nearly as much leverage. He could end up pricing himself off of every other team, and then be stuck in Phoenix where anything can happen. Paying a guy that much money, which cannot be taken off of your cap if he gets hurt, for that amount of years is stupid, even for teams that can afford it without blinking.
