The San Jose Sharks are considered among the clubs interested in Shane Doan, but he might prove too expensive.
CSNCALIFORNIA.COM: Kevin Kurz noted reports suggesting Phoenix Coyotes captain Shane Doan was seeking a four-year, $30 million contract, which would be $7.5 million per season. Kurz cites a source claiming if those demands are accurate, the Sharks won’t be among the suitors, as they won’t offer more than three years at $4.5 million per.
SPECTOR’S NOTE: Doan’s agent denied his camp was seeking that much. I think what happened is the rumor several weeks ago of an unnamed Eastern Conference team offering a four year, $30 million contract got blown up into speculation Doan was seeking that much. I realize over half the league is interested in Doan, but most of them won’t offer up that kind of dough.
