I think Doan is on the Pens' radar, but more as a back up plan if they don't sign Semin.

Nothing too bad. Michalek didn't feel he fit the Pens uptempo system and rumor was he wanted out. The Pens were actually nice enough to send him somewhere he wanted to go.

Doan is more of a Shero/Bylsma style player than Semin. I think they have interest in both. Probably more in Doan than Semin though.

That if he didn't like the style of play they would trade him to a team he wanted to go to?

I don't know what you mean, Michalek didn't fit Bylsma's system so they traded him back to a city and team he (and his family) are familiar with. Also Michalek played the majority of his career in Phoenix and is a perfect fit for Tippet's system.

Also traded Jordan Staal to where he wanted to go, to Carolina to play with his brother. That tells me that they care about the interests of their players.

That if things don't work out, the Pens go out of their way to make sure the player returns to somewhere he's familiar and comfortable?

If that was the case with Michalek, that was a very classy thing for the team to do. Phoenix being his preferred landing spot would also explain the small return Pittsburgh received.

I think Phoenix and Ottawa were the two teams Shero entertained trading Michalek to and Ottawa wanted to give salary in return which didn't work for Shero.

watch, Doan will be completely irrelevant to the team he signs with.
