Rangers Still In Play for Doan

doanJesse Spector at the Sporting News reports that the Rangers are still in play to land Shane Doan.

Spector adds that skating on the opposite side of a line with Rick Nash or Chris Kreider would be a natural fit for Doan.

“New York’s situation also should be that much more appealing to Doan, knowing that his signing there might just be the last piece of a Stanley Cup puzzle.”

Remaining in Phoenix is still Doan’s top choice, but, according to Spector, he does not want to sign a multi-year deal with a team whose future remains uncertain beyond this coming season.

…i really think the acquisition of Nash has made the Rangers a very attractive option for Doan. If winning a Cup is a priority for him, I can’t imagine he won’t take a pay cut to join the Blueshirts.

…now I’ve got to disagree with Spector that Doan could be skating on a line with either Nash or Kreider. I see Doan more as a third line guy, maybe playing with Hagelin and Boyle. Unless of course, Stepan or Kreider struggle, then I could see Doan being given a spot in the top six.
