from Frank Seravalli of Frequent Flyers,
Even after making the biggest splash of the summer by signing Shea Weber to an offer sheet on Wednesday, the Flyers may not be done shopping just yet.
Shane Doan visited Philadelphia to meet with Flyers executives and get a peek at the city on Saturday, multiple sources have confirmed to the Daily News.
One league source said that while there is mutual interest between the Flyers and Doan, the visit was more about Doan “just checking his options.” He also spent 90 minutes with the Rangers on Friday, after spending time in New York for the NHLPA’s Collective Bargaining Agreement negotiations.
Doan, 35, has spent his entire career with the Phoenix / Winnipeg franchise - the only original Coyote still playing in Phoenix. In fact, Doan, Nikolai Khabibulin and Teemu Selanne are the last active players from the final 1995-96 Jets team in Winnipeg. He has been the Coyotes’ captain since 2003.
That history is one reason why many believe Doan will remain in the desert, but not without first considering all of his options.
