You have to think the Wings are going to throw everything at him. They didn't get ANYONE this offseason, they have a ton of cap space, and some huge needs.

We offer a winter climate his family is more accustomed to, plus the opportunity to be reunited with those guys plus Stammer. Ya never know.
Only Marty's first NHL club was Calgary -- famously, Vinny's was Tampa Bay. He'll spend his entire career with one organization, something rare and precious in the world of work these days

Think he's talking about a World Championship run for Team Canada, could be wrong though.

Oh, they were together for the Olympics in Turin, durr.

Yeah, you have to assume that the Wings can offer him much more money than we can. He'd be a great fit for them too. But he'd be a better fit in Tampa. This would be too great.

Would you pay $30 million for four years of Shane Doan?

Quote:
With Zach Parise and Ryan Suter gone, and because someone is spreading a rumour that Alexander Semin has a highly communicable form of super-leprosy, Shane Doan has become the most coveted free agent on the market.

And, while the Coyotes' winger has made his preference for staying in Phoenix perfectly clear, with the franchise continuing to fight for their very existence like Marty McFly, the mess in Arizona could eventually prompt Doan to head elsewhere.

Now, if it's stability Doan is craving, he might want to avoid the team whose GM had a full-blown mental breakdown recently and submitted the offer Phoenix radio talk show host John Gambadoro alleges is on the table:

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

— John Gambadoro (@Gambo620) July 13, 2012

Let's suppose that some Eastern Conference GM really did down a tall glass of ayahuasca tea and submit this offer. This is insanity.

Doan had 22 goals and 50 points last year, playing first line minutes on the Coyotes. His numbers were fairly similar to what he put up in the two years prior as well, so it's a safe bet that that's the production you'll get out of Doan going forward.

Wondering aloud if it was Winnipeg.

Good point. They're "Eastern" still, while being a team in the west, plus the whole used to play there angle. x_x

I doubt Jersey has the money, but with Zach gone, they may need a replacement.

I doubt Doan goes to Winnipeg. He only played there one year and has been on record saying he won't go back.

The other team that immediately sprang to mind that could use a strong leader is the Islanders.
