There have been several new developments and some NHL rumors since last writing about Shane Doan‘s decision being up in the air as to which team he is most likely to play for next season.
It’s been reported that the Pittsburgh Penguins are one of at least six teams that have extended a contract offer to him. And it’s more than likely that the New York Rangers are no longer among them since acquiring Rick Nash from the Columbus Blue Jackets on Monday.
Doan’s agent, Terry Bross, has stated that last week Doan was in New York for a collective bargaining agreement meeting so he took the opportunity to visit some of the east coast suitors like the Rangers and the Philadelphia Flyers. Bross has said that Pittsburgh is likely to be on that list as well and that it could take place sometime this week, but nothing has yet to be confirmed.
Look for this scenario to continue until a decision has been made on the future of the Phoenix Coyotes. And, until then, it’s highly likely that all interested organizations will remain equally in play for Doan. In fact, according to several articles that quote Bross, it is certain that he’s interested is playing for alot of those teams.
