NHL source just confirmed to me that an Eastern Conference team has offered Coyotes Captain Shane Doan a 4-year deal worth more than 30 mill
"It has not been a good day. I lost my glasses early this morning and I had to go buy a pair of 79 dollar reading glasses today. 79 bucks. You can literally get them at Costco, three-for-20." - Darryl Sutter's response to going up 2-0 in the series.
Like I said in the previous thread, I wouldn't be totally shocked if it was the Jets. What other team in the East would want Doan that badly?
We're still under the cap floor (although we'll be over once Kane re-signs), but Mark Chipman was a diehard Jets 1.0 fan and he and Assistant GM Craig Heisinger knew a lot of the former players personally. We're talking about a management team that offered Selanne a contract last summer, even though he had made it clear he wasn't going to leave Anaheim. I could see them making an offer to Doan, but whether it was for 7.5 million per remains to be seen.
All I can say is I spit food out. Wow, that's how desparate a team has gotten to acquire a top 6 forward. Personally I would think that team has to have contacted Semin as well. Winnipeg would be an interesting team to say the least.
