"How close was Shane Doan to becoming a Flyer? Close enough for the organization to mock up a couple jerseys for the 36-year-old forward: one with No. 18, another with No. 91.
And, apparently, close enough for his agent, Terry Bross, to post a photo of the sweaters hanging in the Flyers' locker room at Skate Zone on Instagram with the caption, “So glad this didn’t happen. It came close though.” (No. 19, which Doan wears in Phoenix, is currently owned by Scott Hartnell here in Philadelphia.)"
The jerseys themselves aren't proof of anything we didn't already know, but the fact that Doan's agent singled out the Flyers after the signing (when he had no longer had anything to gain by doing so) seems significant.
