This story just seems to never go away does it? Will this guys just make a decision already and we can put it to rest. Shane Doan who is still and unsigned free agent better make up his mind and make it up soon. Shane Doan or shall I say Dora the Explorer has visited every East Coast team you can think of, I think he even stopped in and tried to work out a deal with the Yankees.
With the NHL lockout staring us right in the face it seems that Shane Doan and his agent will have a place for him to call home before September 15th, 2012.
“Shane is going to sign a contract before the CBA expires on the 15th,” said Doan’s agent, Terry Bross.
“(Ownership has to) be done before the 15th, otherwise we’re signing somewhere because we don’t know what the new CBA is going to look like, and I don’t know if it’s going to limit any scope of a contract, so we want to make sure we sign before then.
“I guess from that respect, time is ticking.”
Everyone thinks this guy is going to stay in Phoenix and good for him if he does but I’m saying its all a bullshit act to make him look like mister nice guy and he’s going to jump ship and be able to point the finger like someone else didn’t get the job done. Time will tell where he will land but my gut is tell me somewhere in the Western Conference.
