The Doan Watch Begins

from Sarah McLellan of the Arizona Republic,

After sitting on the sidelines for a week, Doan is expected to begin exploring his options Monday.

“I expect by Tuesday we’ll probably start listening to some offers, get an idea of where he kind of fits in the market, and take that next step,” said Terry Bross,Doan’s agent. “I wouldn’t say anything’s imminent.”...

Since free agency opened on July 1, 11 teams have expressed interest in Doan, but re-signing with the Coyotes has remained his goal.

“There are two or three that he’d take a long hard look at, and it’d break his heart to do so,” Bross said.

Maloney has had regular talks with Bross, and the Coyotes are willing to agree to either a one-year deal or a multiyear contract. Neither side has discussed money or terms since before July 1, but both are confident a deal can be reached.

Doan hasn’t set a deadline for when he plans to commit to a team. If he opts to explore free agency, Bross isn’t sure what the process will entail.
