    Default Doan't let the door hit ya on the way out...

    https://www.nhl.com/coyotes/news/coy...an/c-289991732

    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
    Monday, June 19, 2017

    GLENDALE, ARIZONA --- Arizona Coyotes Owner, Chairman and Governor Andrew Barroway issued the following statement today regarding Shane Doan.

    "After serious consideration, we have decided to not offer Shane Doan a contract for the upcoming season. The time has come for us to move on and to focus on our young, talented group of players and our very bright future. This was a very difficult decision given what Shane has done for the Coyotes and his unparalleled importance to the organization. With that said, this is necessary to move us forward as a franchise.


    "On behalf of the entire organization, I would like to sincerely thank Shane for everything he's done for the Coyotes on and off the ice the past 21 years. Shane is a Valley icon who had an incredible career and was one of the best captains to ever play in the NHL.

    "Shane deserves an enormous amount of credit for keeping the Coyotes in the Valley and for growing the game of hockey in Arizona. He is beloved by our fans, corporate partners and the media and has been a tremendous leader for us in the community, and a great role model for kids. We wish him and his family all the best in the future. He will be a member of our Pack forever."

    In a way, they just ****ed themselves. They won't get a veteran to sign there for the foreseeable future.

    I think his strategy is to just suck balls with a really cheap lineup to be able to draft better, while their fanbase shrinks even more than it already has. Then, he'll be able to justify to the NHL ownership that he has to move the team to Seattle or Quebec.
    at the draft party a couple of years ago, and under a considerable haze, i heard Birdman yell out the following (about 4 or 5 times, i think) - "don't marry yourselves to players!" he went on to reiterate that idea more than once on the boards, and i believe it to be absolutely sage.

    I don't think Doan being there or not was going to have any influence on their ability to sign UFA's. They need to get out of Glendale more than anything.

    Well it makes sense, he is 40. But think of it, 21 years, over 1500 games for the same franchise...YET, only 9 playoff appearances and only 55 playoff games. And 16 of those came in one season. Guy never really had a chance to win a title in Phoenix.

    Shunned by the pack the former alpha-male must now run with the hunted. Poor Shane. On the plus: His next gig could be a more humanitarian one where he helps people find their soulmate after eating insanity peppers at a chili cook-off.

    A humongous chip on his shoulder.
