In what has emerged as an accessory to the ownership saga that has plagued the Coyotes for the past three years, the uncertainty surrounding captain Shane Doan's future with the franchise may be nearing a resolution.
Doan will chat over the phone with potential buyer Greg Jamison Friday in what appears as a last-ditch effort to gain insight into the status of Jamison's bid to purchase the Coyotes. If Doan's camp doesn't receive the reassurance it's seeking, talks with other interested teams are likely to begin.
"We're expecting some type of announcement or debriefing (Friday) regarding the ownership group, and hopefully we get good news and (General Manager) Don (Maloney) and I can start putting pencil to paper," said Doan's agent, Terry Bross. "If we don't, I think we're going to start to negotiate with some of the other clubs."
