I did feel earlier that it would be horribly sad to see him leave, and that it would be hard for fans to accept it. Now I've come to the conclusion that he's more than earned the right to play somewhere where there is stability and a good team on the ice - it seems like he's always had one or the other, but never both. He's given everything we could possible ask of him - and more - and it's not appreciated by the people who control the purse strings.
I will still be sad to see him go - but I will wish him all the best and I really hope to see him lift the cup, no matter what team he is playing for over the next few years. I have a sneaking suspicion that many other Coyotes fans will feel the same way, and are sad to see it play out this way, while harboring no ill will towards him. We all know where his heart is.
I feel bad for Doan and I feel bad for the Fans, but at the same time no one is forcing Doan to sign with another team and nor is he being forced out by the franchise or trying to screw him over. At the end of the day this is his decision and whatever he decides to do is all on him.
