If Shane Doan is willing to listen, the Red Wings will pitch hard for him to come to Detroit.
Doan has been an unrestricted free agent for more than a week, but his situation is different because he has been waiting to see how the ownership and arena situation in Glendale, Ariz., will play out. That is supposed to be cleared up today, though the issues could drag on into mid-July.
As of a few days ago, Doan let it be known he'd start taking offers from other teams this week. The Wings will make one, knowing Doan doesn't want to leave Phoenix. In all likelihood, he'll end up signing a one-year deal with the Coyotes, just in case the franchise ends up relocating.
