Doan to remain in Phoenix, agrees to four year deal

September 7, 2012, by

Per Arizona Sports, the Shane Doan saga is over. The veteran winger will remain in Phoenix on a four year, $21.5 million contract ($5.375 million per year). This ends the two month debate over where Doan would wind up, which included two missed deadlines and an ownership drama that rivaled most soap operas. Doan is remaining where he belongs. Unfortunately for the Rangers, they miss out on some great depth on their top-nine wingers.

    Did anyone really expect Doan to really leave the dogs? Looking at the terms, he gave Phoenix a home toen discount with this contract.

    Personally I’m glad this is over with, I feared the possibility of a four year contract, at $30 mil, wow that would have been a killer!!!! Shane good luck with the contract, the terms, and demonistrating loyality to your organization, you are a class act!

    Who cares, lockout is coming. I am forcing myself not to care about anything Rangers, until the CBA is signed.
