Shane Doan to test free agency

Rate this topic

61 posts in this topic

I've always had the sort of love/hate thing with Doan watching him play. He plays on the edge, and often over it. But the guy's a competitor and has strapped his team on his back time and time again in the playoffs. That's hard not to like.

I have to say though, I lost respect for him not for his antics in the handshake line with LA, but his whining in the lockerroom about the officials being against the Coyotes. He sounded like a bitter fan, not the captain. I have a feeling Tippet used an "everybody is against us" mentality to motivate his team, but it might have created an air of victimhood too.

It's one thing for Smith, who's just another insane goalie, but I was just surprised to hear Doan say things like that.

I think if givin a chance Doan would take those comments back in a heart beat. I would take a player that gives a s*** over one that isnt interested in the regular season 10 times out of 10.

Actually Blue, I like this lineup except I would still try for a healthier back-up....let's give Montoya a try! Although I heard thru the twitter-vine that Holland likes Monster or Clemmenson as back-up...

That's the thing, Doan is absolutely a competitor. It's what makes him play on and sometimes over the edge.

His comments showed a surprising lack of maturity, but I'd still take him on the Wings in a heartbeat.

Doan would be a great addition to the wings, someone who can really bring the pain on the forecheck and just goes all out 24/7,

I cut him some slack on the comments. Yes, he wasn't a gracious loser, but I think we all say things like that when no one is listening. It was the playoffs. He probably forgot that people outside of the Phoenix area listen to hockey players during the playoffs.

The way he plays, I'd love him here.

Give Doaner 2 years at 11M. Give him a shot to win the cup then he can go back to Phoenix and retire a Yote, if they still have a team by then.

Agreed, as long as we can convince a few of them that we can make a run. However, realistically I'd be happy with 2 or 3 of those names joining the squad.

^ That's actually great news for the Wings. The Parise sweepstakes will likely be over well before that and if the Wings can't lock him up, this will give them time to shift their efforts.
