Coyotes to retire Shane Doan's No. 19


Recommended Posts

Doan played forever for a team that didn't deserve him. Deserves to have his number retired, even though I think the idea is a bit wacky. If only they had more success with him there. Have they ever had a 4-5 year stint of being a playoff team in his time there?

They missed the playoffs 12 out of 20 seasons he was there. Were first round fodder 7 out of 8 playoff seasons.

 

Made the 3rd round once.

Yeah, in 2012 which was a fairly easy run to the Cup for the Kings. I'm still butthurt at the teams they got to play that year :P

Great player and part of the great Kamloops Blazer classes of the early to mid 90's. 

 

Kamloops had some good ones back then including Iginla, Tucker, Sydor, Niedermeyer,.....There's about three hall of famers in that list, good times for us Blazer fans.

Nice to see other teams retiring jerseys without ever winning a Cup. Seems like a natural thing to do, honouring Doan.

Just think they should retire the jersey and have it hanging in the rafters, but leave the number in circulation. That goes for all retired numbers so others can aspire to and where numbers of idols etc. It in no way disrespects those already retired.

 

Doan, awesome career and one of those great leaders and class acts who never won the Cup.

Yes, same with Marcel Dionne, Gilbert Perrault, Darryl Sittler, Eric Lindros, etc. Lots of great players that have never won the Cup.

Title should be Jets to retire Shane Doans 19th 

Doan only played 1 season in Winnipeg before moving to Phoenix so having the Jets retire his number makes no sense, like how the Coyotes organization honoured Dale Hawerchuk and putting him in their ring of honour when he never played in Phoenix and the fans in attendance didn't seem to know who Hawerchuk was.

I think he was referring to the Jets (rightfully) never moving from Winnipeg therefore Doan would retire a Jet having only played for one franchise Jets/Coyotes.
