Shane Doan excited about Arizona’s 15-16 season outlook

Via Pro Hockey Talk's James O'Brien, Shane Doan spoke with Fox Sports Arizona's Craig Morgan on Wednesday evening, and Doan is excited about the Coyotes' outlook for the upcoming season:

[They] did bring back Doan's close friend, center Antoine Vermette, re-signed defenseman Zbynek Michalek, signed forwards Brad Richardson and Steve Downie and traded for defenseman Nicklas Grossman. With more room in the budget, it is clear that ownership has loosened the purse strings a bit in an effort to avoid a repeat of last season's collapse.

"We made a lot of moves this summer, and all of them were for legitimate, really good NHL players," Doan said. "I think it is everyone's goal again to put ourselves in a position where we can see good things happening. There's no question we're going to have to get back to that old pack mentality where everybody is chipping in. We need some young guys to step up, and we need some old guys to step up, but you look at Calgary and how they turned it around, and it gives you hope."

Doan said he has no plans to waive his no-move clause and request a trade in the final year of his contract. He also said he wants to keep playing beyond this year.

"I always want to approach it that way until I know I'm done," he said. "I'd like to have a good year. If I feel I can still help the team and they still want me, we can go from there."
