Red Wings Rumors: Activity On Shane Doan Front Expected To Start Picking Up

NHL free agency may have started on July 1, but July 9 (Monday) is the real start for free agent forward Shane Doan. He didn't want to talk with any teams until July 9 because he is expecting to get a better idea about the future of the Phoenix Coyotes on that day. Assuming he does get some things cleared up and is ready to start exploring the open market, his agent says that Doan will "start listening to some offers" by Tuesday.

For Doan, there is already quite a bit of interest in him on the open market. To be exact, 11 teams have expressed interest in Doan, although that doesn't mean all 11 will actually be in contention to sign him.

In fact, the list of teams Doan would actually consider leaving the Coyotes for is quite small. According to his agent, Doan would only "take a long hard look at" two or three different teams, and the Detroit Red Wings are believed to be one of them. MLive's Ansar Khan reported last week that Doan's agent was in contact with the Red Wings about getting an offer for his client, so it's a safe bet that Detroit will be on the short list should Doan opt to leave Arizona.
