I watched a bit of the 87 Canada Cup... ahhhhh, the good ole days where dirty plays weren't called often unless they stopped a goal from happening.

It is down two - Phoenix and Vancouver. Coyotes Captain Shane Doan will sign a contract deciding where he will play by 5 pm NY time Friday

Same guy that broke the Steve Nash to Lakers deal.

Dear Shane Doan,

The Coyotes will move to Quebec/Seattle and the fans there wont give a shit what you have done for the Coyotes. You will most likely be forgotten by PHX fans once the relocation is set.

^No it wasn't confirmed, just rumors that he'd resign with Phoenix since "they got a deal done".

But tomorrow's the supposed deadline for Doan to sign.

This offseason hasn't been kind to us (Schultz, Weber etc) so I'll say he officially signs with Phoenix

luck's never been on our side, so im just gna assume Doan signing with PHX

IMO as long as they keep the team there he's not leaving, and it wouldn't be too great to have him for 7.5 a year
esp with cap ceiling lowered

For once, I actually agree with Mark Spector on his article about Bettman.

The commish is the main reason why the NHL is facing another impending lockout. Bettman has shown poor judgement in making decisions in running the league.
-expanding the NHL to hockey mad cities like Phoenix, Florida, and Carolina? Really?

This economist that Spector refers to in his article is spot on in his assessment about Bettman. The big problem is that the Board of Governors that hired this guy are also a bunch of buffoons when it comes to running a professional sports league.

With what Trow Brauer signed for today, I think its pretty clear Burrows will be in the 4M range.
From what I recall, 2m/yr for Burrows back then was considered generous. He signed in 2008 and didn't break out until after he signed the contract. I guess 4M is a possibility considering the cap space. But it's still a hefty sum for a player that just happened to fit in.

$29.5M over 5 for Kari Lehtenon via TSN.

Seems like all these recent contracts are over payments but owners want to reduce payroll

While I hate Bettman as much as the next hockey fan, the expansion teams in Florida & Anaheim were already there before his start in '93. The only teams added during his tenure was NSH, ATL, COL, and MIN. Not great, but Minnesota is doing alright.

Rest of the article is spot on.

Doan announcement should be within 2 hours. Will be interesting if he signs here especially with the lockout looming.

Quote:
News1130 Sports ‏@News1130Sports
Terry Bross the agent for Shane Doan tells CKWX that the #Canucks became front-runners the night Doan had dinner with management in Van.

News1130 Sports ‏@News1130Sports
Bross says Doan willing to take less in VAN bcoss he loves the front office - calls them 1st class.
And more Burr news.

Quote:
News1130 Sports ‏@News1130Sports
Alexandre Burrows agent tells CKWX that the gap closed a little bit in contract talks last night with the #Canucks.

News1130 Sports ‏@News1130Sports
Burrows agent says he will talk with #Canucks management in the next couple of hours again in hopes of striking a new deal.

News1130 Sports ‏@News1130Sports
The clock is ticking - Burrows and #Canucks have till midnight tomorrow to strike deal. No talks allowed in a lockout.
