Hypothetically what does Doan do if the team relocated to Winnipeg? Never happen, I think he still becomes UFA and goes to a contender. Probably the more underlying reason here IMO. Team is in shambles.
Nuh-uhhhhh... according to published sources, a trip from Scottsdale/Cave Creek to Glendale and back requires riding camels uphill both ways in blinding sandstorms and evading hostile Bedouins brandishing serrated golf clubs and shuffleboard sticks.
Additionally, if you live in Paradise Valley (as I used to), you have to tack on a grinding, soulless five-minute detour up to the 101 to take the loop around to Westgate - and I'm told that the detour alone will kill you.
It makes those two-hour commutes up in Canada through blizzard conditions look like child's play.
