Canucks face competition to sign Shane Doan, Ondrej Pavelec apologizes over DUI incident, Subban sole Habs RFA, and Edmonton councillors approve new arena design.
VANCOUVER PROVINCE: Jason Botchford reports the Canucks are among six teams believed to have made offers to Phoenix Coyotes captain Shane Doan, but it appears he might re-sign with the Coyotes.
SPECTOR’S NOTE: For the latest on Doan, check out the “Rumors” section.
WINNIPEG FREE PRESS: Goaltender Ondrej Pavelec has apologized to the Jets and their fans over a drunk driving incident earlier this year in the Czech Republic.
MONTREAL GAZETTE: P.K. Subban is the Canadiens sole unsigned free agent.
SPECTOR’S NOTE: No, I don’t believe this could result in Subban being traded. Some contract negotiations take longer than others, but rest assured, whenever this season begins, Subban will be suiting up with the Habs.
TSN.CA: Edmonton city councillors have approved the design for a new downtown arena, which would house the Edmonton Oilers. The new arena was estimated to cost $450 million, but the current price tag is apparently $35 million higher than estimated.
