I still think the offer came from the Canadiens, not the Sabres - and that's why Doan is visiting them next week after having earlier told Montreal he wasn't interested. My guess is that the offer, combined with his relationship with Price, changed his mind enough to at least agree to a face-to-face with the Canadiens' management.

My theory would also explain why he hasn't visited with the Sabres - because they haven't done anything in terms of an offer to stand out from the other 5 offers he's gotten.

I don't see what one really has to do with the other. A 1 year contract at 7 million dollars is reasonable for pretty much any first line player because it's, obviously, only 1 year. Doan at multiple years over the age of 35 isn't really comparable. Not saying he won't get it, but this hardly cinches it.

Get the popcorn, Giroux dished on Crosby hacking him in the playoffs -

Quote:
That's not to say he doesn't have any though, as one look at his hands reveals a pair of nearly symmetrical scars.

“Those are from (Sidney) Crosby,” he says half smiling, but with some tension in his voice. “Every time we'd line up against each other for a face-off during our (2012 playoff) series, instead of going for the puck when it was dropped, he'd hack me across the wrists. I ended up playing the series against (New) Jersey with one of them fractured and had to go for surgery on both of them after we were out of the playoffs.”
Good times.

Enstrom is one of the earliest 2013 UFAs off the board. Re-ups with the 'Peg for multiple years.

Definitely my favorite playoff moment this year. Giroux is a lot of fun to watch.

Greg Jamison’s bid to buy the Phoenix Coyotes and keep the team in Glendale faces yet another deadline Friday along with renewed concerns over whether his ownership group has the investors and money to buy the team from the National Hockey League.
Quote:
The sports executive has experience managing and running arenas, but he needs investment money to buy the team. That has proven complicated with Jamison relying on multiple investors, and perhaps financing avenues, to try to close the deal.

That includes some international and Middle Eastern money. There have been discussions with a Saudi investment group about a stake in the Coyotes.
Seems totally legit.

Then close down the Coyotes, and then "expand" a team.

Per TSN:

Enstrom extends with Winnipeg.

5 years, $5.75 million per.




Great deal for both sides, IMO.

Next year's UFA defensemen class is going to be putrid. Alex Edler must be licking his chops.

If Philly wants to add a top-tier defenseman, they're going to have to make B. Schenn or Couturier available.

Or fire up the next offersheet?

Edit - Pietrangelo, Bogosian, Ekman-Larsson, Fowler, Shattenkirk, Alzner, McDonagh, Demers are all up next summer. I wonder if one of their agents isn't thinking ahead right now....

I would offersheet one of those three. Pairing one of those LHD with Myers for the next decade would be other worldly.

Not 100% sure. He's not a guy that tweets out 100 rumors a day like the others ... So I'm not certain as to what he gets right or not.

Myers, Ehrhoff, Pysyk would likely be your RD.

McD or OEL or Fowler/Myers
Sekera/Ehrhoff
McNabb/Pysyk

Whispers of the prospect of folding the Coyotes go back to the Stanley Cup final. But itís unlikely the league would do that. What could happen is the same thing that occurs in the American League from time to time. When a franchise there is beyond hope, the league usually suspends its operations until such time as a new owner can be found and the franchise is moved.

That is, what Iím being told, a possibility with the Coyotes. Industry insiders have suggested that prospective owner Greg Jamison hasnít been able to take over the franchise yet because his investors are getting skittish, even with the City of Glendale paying up to $324 million over the next 20 years as part of the lease agreement. One observer close to the situation said Jamisonís investors have actually bailed on the project. Even though the transfer of ownership appears to have cleared the possibility of a petition that would put the NHLís deal with Jamison on the ballot, the organization is still very much in a state of limbo.

And this was said yesterday re: Doan:
Quote:
azc_mclellan From Bross: Doan is hoping to hear some type of news from the Jamison group tomorrow. If he doesn't,likley starts negotiating w/ other teams
http://twitter.com/azc_mclellan/stat...32424093999104

And then today..:
Quote:
azc_mclellan As of 2 p.m. PST, Terry Bross, Shane Doan's agent, said Doan hasn't heard from Greg Jamison as far as he knows.
http://twitter.com/azc_mclellan/stat...66467901718528

Quote:
azc_mclellan As of 7 p.m. PST, Doan has still not heard from Greg Jamison, according to his agent Terry Bross.

Sounds like the old man doesn't have the cash.

There is a report that Jamison is $20M short and the NHL refuses to lower the asking price.
