screw you all

i still want doan

you losers whine all year for signings and then when you have to wait you just give up

get the fudge outta here


Yep, it's pretty funny.

Everyone is complaining how Gillis has done nothing all offseason, yet the one signing that we have a chance at that would significantly upgrade our team is not good enough.

It's not as easy as just acquiring player x because you think they're good. Any trade we would make for a top 6 would take significant assets, if we even had them. That's why this is the best option for us, and it's worth waiting it out for.

But at the one sign that things may not be going our way, people suddenly pretend they don't want him. These people better not get all excited if we sign him then.

How did those idiots get that arena in Glendale in the first place?

I guess my question for the taxpayers is, 'Well, you shut it down... Now what?'

It's not like they have people knocking down their door to fill that bloody arena...

As for Doan, we've seen every one of his so-called deadlines come and go. All he's done is weaken his bargaining strength with the Coyotes.

But imo a hand shake is a done deal to a guy like Doan. He'll be a Coyote until they nail the doors shut.

The deal that he shook hands on was that he'd agree to a contract, IF ownership is in place by the 15th.

If Jamison can't get that done, he will have broken his part of the deal, therefore Doan will walk.

Still want Doan of course.... especially if the deal is like what he has apparently agreed to in principle in Phoenix.

4yr, 21 million = only 5.25 cap hit... that isn't so bad for a player nowadays.

Most of it paid up front in signing bonus so that at the end of the contract if he isn't playing well or retires (assuming they grandfather all existing contracts under current rules), he would be paid very little actual cash, and easy to move off the books to another team who needs the cap hit.

I wouldn't be surprised if Doan continues to wait for Jamison after the 15th......

But he might sign somewhere for that signing bonus, who knows.

Hard to say at this point. His loyalty to the Coyotes will be tested even further.

I think Doan would want a little more than that. But if we got him for under $6M I would be ecstatic.

fact is if he doesnt want to risk them making a deal come the 15th ( dont rule it out , these things heat up in the finals 4-5 days)

he could screw himself out of any big payoff considering his age and what the new CBA may have in it

in that case he could end up in phoenix yes , but with alot less money and im sure he does not want that

times a ticking doaner

Phoenix Coyotes on the move? NHL may soon consider relocation

With all this sudden Jarome Iginla chatter, most hockey fans spent the majority of Wednesday evening talking about a player that probably should have been moved last year, at the very least. But somewhat overshadowed in the rumoured end to the Iggy Derby was Darren Dreger's update regarding a team that probably should have been moved last year: the Phoenix Coyotes.
According to Dreger, the NHL may be running out of patience in Phoenix. After years of doing their best to keep the team in Glendale, the league could make a decision on relocating the franchise in advance of the Stanley Cup playoffs.
"It's clear time [is] running out and relocation must be considered," Dreger tweeted.
The TSN analyst listed Quebec City, Seattle and Kansas City among relocation sites, none of them new options to puckheads.
But at this point, I think hockey fans know not to react too quickly to any report about the Phoenix Coyotes, and this one is no different. Don't think that's the end of the Coyotes as we know them just yet.
"Current focus remains on selling the Coyotes to ownership in Glendale," Bill Daly told Yahoo!'s Nick Cotsonika. "We haven't spent much time on anything else."
Adding to that, John Shannon passed on new information Wednesday night regarding another comeback by Ice Edge. According to Shannon, Ice Edge CEO is part of a new group that he leads along with George Gosbee, head of AltaCorp Capital and Vice Chair of AIMCo, a $70 Billion investment Fund. "Word is they are finalizing a proposal with NHL," Shannon said.
Basically, nothing is set in stone at all, which means there really isn't anything new here. It's seemed like just about anything could happen in the Glendale ownership kerfuffle for years, and now it just seems slightly morelike that.
Still, if the Coyotes do move, where they go could have a big impact on another recent hot topic: realignment. The Coyotes were supposed to be part of the Westernmost grouping in the new setup. A move to Seattle would be ideal from this perspective, since they're even further West than Phoenix. There's little headache there.
But a move from Phoenix to, say, Quebec City, which Dreger said was the frontrunner, throws the conferences as the Board of Governors approved them into disarray. Somehow, I suspect Quebec City won't so into that.
Would Kansas City?
They'd probably be more comfortable in Division B, with midwestern teams like the Minnesota Wild, who are almost a straight shot north of them. But if the Coyotes go East, someone is going to have to move West, and as we've seen, pretty much no one wants to move West.
Stay tuned on this one.

I still say Portland is the best choice. Population may not be in the same ballpark as Seattle/KC/Houston but it has an arena and more hockey history than some of the oft suggested cities.

Seattle and Quebec can bid on expansion teams for 2015 when arenas are in the process. Let the NHL get a big pile of money.

Toronto can grab a team like the bjs or florida when they finally lose enough money.

They better move. If it is Quebec City, I guess they could move a team like Dteroit or Columbus or Nashville back into the central division, then move the Avs to the Pacific.

Nashville is in the Central division, it would have to be one of Detroit, Columbus or maybe both to keep 15 teams each.

Seattle is not possible at this time. The arena is no where near done whereas Quebec has an arena that can be used until the new one is built.

I personally don't care for the move to seattle... I am in quebec and wouldn't mind a second chance for the canucks to play here close to home

“Since the beginning of recorded history, which is defined by the invention of writing by the Sumerians around 6,000 years ago, historians have cataloged over 3700 supernatural beings, of which 2870 can be considered deities.

So next time someone tells me they believe in God, I’ll say “Oh which one? Zeus? Hades? Jupiter? Mars? Odin? Thor? Krishna? Vishnu? Ra?…” If they say “Just God. I only believe in the one God,”

I’ll point out that they are nearly as atheistic as me.I don’t believe in 2,870 gods, and they don’t believe in 2,869.”

I think if the team does move to the east then Detroit should stay thare and Columbus should get the boot. Original 6 should trump an expansion team

Seattle makes total sense. The Hanson group, including Steve Balmer of MicroSoft, already have bought the NBA franchise in Sacremento. They expect an arena completed in two years. The Yotes could play in the existing 10,000 seat arena until then.

Canucks can only hope this is what comes down. It would cut how many miles & hours off their travel? The ownership group is absolutely solid. They don't have to scratch deals together like Ice Edge. Kansas City has no history of success. Quebec City cannot run a province so why would a NHL team be a go for a 2nd round?

Wonder what Doan is thinking, considering he apparently felt confident a deal would be done and they would be staying in Phoenix

Seattle have two temporarily arenas they can use in the mean time while the new one is under construction. They can use the Key Arena or the Tacoma Dome.

Also why move Phoenix out of the West into the crammed East? That is pretty unfair... Quebec can wait out longer, they should be part of the expansion..
