As if Coyotes fans didn't lose their gasket when the Kings eliminated and decimated them, imagine their reaction when they sign the face of their franchise. That'll be a double whammy.

His parents own and operate Christian Youth camp in Alberta. Shane was literally raised in church camp. He lived at church camp until he left for Kamloops.

He does not have a dirty mouth and would not make a Franco slur.

It was all nonsense.
From my time in this Province, I've learned that there is only one thing that can make any Albertan swear. Quebec citizens.

Was somewhat hoping for him to go to the Kings, but I don't want that if he actually wants 5 years. I'd go 2 tops right now. And that still depends on cap hit.

Doan is a farm boy. Anyone who thinks he'll sign in SoCal is out of their minds.

Doan on the Canucks on the same line as Kessler would be scary

Doan and Darryl Sutter can exchange farming tips.

Dean and Daryl can like Doan as much as they want, but I highly, highly doubt he considers signing with the Kings after how the WCF went down. It just doesn't make any sense.

I also hope Dean isn't getting doe eyed and ignoring all the potential chemistry issues a strong personality like Doan would pose in the locker room. There has been all kind of talk about some of the apparently very nasty things Doan said to Brown in the handshake line. I really don't think those wounds have healed. Yeah, sure, "they're professionals they'll get over it" is the auto-retort, but be realistic here. Doan lost it after that WCF. I really don't think he'd be willing to sign in LA, and I don't think the room would accept him, anyway.

With all that said, a line of Brown-Richards-Doan would truly be a force to behold.

Gagne-Kopitar-Carter
Brown-Richards-Doan
Penner-Stoll-Williams

Is probably the best top nine in the league.

Obviously, only if Phoenix doesn't work out. I'd like to see him stay there, naturally, but would love to see him in a Stars' sweater even more.
Don't forget he co-owns the Kamloops Blazers with our new owner Tom Gaglardi. Doan being a star wouldn't surprise me one bit, but then again I'm a Stars fan.

I'm not entirely sure why but I have a feeling Doan will be wearing teal next year.

Marleau-Thornton-Doan
Clowe-Couture-Havlat
xxx-Pavelski-xxx

Marleau/Couture/Pavelski and Doan/Havlat switched as needed.

I need Doan to sign with Phoenix, i dont want to lose that 'rivalry' he currently has with Dustin Brown and the Kings. Looking forward to Yotes v Kings first meeting, but i need Shane there.

Not in a positive way....I like Doan, but I don't think he would fit well with Kes.

i can't imagine why not
in his last 4 years he's averaged close to 23g / 37a ...so while he can score he's also a great assist guy too. Plus he's a fantastic leader and physical player .. he is EXACTLY what the Canucks need, and I think he could compliment either of the top 2 lines beautifully.
I just think he's very likely to stay in Phx
I like him WAY more than Semin, who is equally unlikely to come as he'll want monster $ and term.

Is probably the best top nine in the league.

Doan , during an interview said, "that Brownie wanted to talk about the hit, and told him now was not the time to discuss."

Doan actually called him "Brownie" now if a guy is very bitter towards another guy, they probably are not going to use the guy's hockey nick, when they refer to him.

Players get over things quicker than fans do.

Clearly the guy does not want to uproot his family otherwise he would not care where the team ends up. So he is going to look for the next best option to try and stay as close to home as he can.. On off days he will want the ability to go home, LA-Anaheim, he is there in less than an hour. Dallas/SJO/Denver an 1.5 to 2 hours.. Those seem as the logical choices.

I know some people have suggested it might be nice for Doan to come full-circle and end his career where it began, in Winnipeg, but as a Jets fan, I just wanted to point out that I definitely don't want him coming here.

He's a very good player, but I don't like his personality at all. To me, anyway, he always seems so insincere in interviews, like he's trying to put on this holier-than-thou image while not actually behaving that way on the ice.

I mean, he goes on and on and on about how he's a Christian -- which is completely irrelevant to hockey in any way, shape or form, by the way -- and then he'll go on the ice and do some ridiculously dirty play, hitting from behind or whatever. It never really matches up to me. If you're going to goon mother****ers out there, don't pretend to be all pious and ****.

I think the alleged anti-French slurs are related to that. Doan is always talking about how he doesn't swear (because of Jesus or some crap). We all know he changed his story in court and finally admitted that someone made the anti-French slur. I've always felt that he denied it so strongly not because he was ashamed that he said something racist, but that he was ashamed that he swore. In the term "****ing frog" or whatever he called the ref, the "****ing" part was way worse for Doan's good-little-Christian image than the "frog" part, so that's why he was so adamant that he didn't say anything.

I've always felt that way, ever since his kind-of admission after the fact that, "OK, I'll admit that someone said it." You said it, mother****er. Own up.

Also, I have to acknowledge that his attitude toward the Coyotes potentially moving back to Winnipeg left a really sour taste in my mouth. Obviously he's not going to say "oh boy, I'm excited my team might relocate," but he could have been a little less of a dick about it.

There were heavy rumours that he'd made a comment on TV in Arizona that based on his experience here, the new Jets were gonna have a hard time selling out games if the team started losing. Of course, he was only here for the lame duck season after the team had already been sold, so he had no frame of reference for what Jets fans were like.

The worst part about this was that he didn't apologize or even publicly deny he made those comments until he had to come here to play a game. Then he was all repentant, all "that's not what I said, I really like Winnipeg." Yeah, right, buddy. **** you. I was among the fans at the sold-out MTS Centre who booed him every time he touched the puck. It was glorious.

(To be fair, we did give him a little ovation to acknowledge he's the only ex-Jet still with that franchise, but after that was done, it was boos all around. **** Doan.)

I don't need to. He writes Bible verses on his sticks. He's well-known for not swearing. Others have referenced that on this very thread. Everyone is well aware that he's a religious nut.

My theory about why he denied the racism stuff is just that... my theory. I never claimed that it was proven fact.

As for the issues with Winnipeg, there was a whole discussion on the HF Jets forum specifically about whether Doan should be booed or not. Our local papers even discussed whether Doan had been offensive or not to this city and its fans. It was a big issue.

I know we boo people every game here in Winnipeg, but Doan was booed longer and louder than pretty much anyone else all season. I was at the game. It was a very charged atmosphere. There's obviously a reason why that happened, and it's not that he's an ex-Jet. When Teemu Selanne came back as a Duck, Jets fans gave him a standing ovation pretty much every time he touched the puck... and he was playing for the other team. Winnipeggers met him at the airport in the middle of the night. The man is absolutely adored here.

Doan isn't. In fact, quite the opposite. So you have to assume there's a reason for that, and not just that he used to play here.

So apparently Dallas is going hard after Doan. Dallas owner Tom Gaglardi and Shane Doan are good friends and co-owners of Kamloops Blazers. If Dallas gets him hopefully they trade Morrow to the 'Nucks.

Given what those 2 are going to make they could probably buy the Coyotes, and move them to a destination of their choosing..
