Shane Doan wants to keep playing after the 2015-16 season.
"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," said Doan, who is eligible for unrestricted free agent next summer. "I always want to approach it that way until I know I'm done." He has spent his entire career with the Jets/Coyotes' franchise and has been the captain since 2003-04. Aug 14 - 8:28 PM

Phoenix Suns owner Robert Sarver doesn't mind his team sharing a new downtown arena with the Coyotes, but he isn't sure if the numbers will add up for the hockey team.

Arizona's lease in Glendale was favorable, but the team is now looking to get out of arena and make a move downtown. A facility that can host both a basketball team and a hockey team is expensive and as Sarver points out, he's already paying $23 million per year to play at US Airways center. It may be extremely difficult for the Coyotes to afford paying prices in that neighborhood given their financial issues. If the team can't make the numbers work, their days in Arizona may be coming to an end.

The Arizona Coyotes will have a few bucks to spend as they currently sit about $18.6M under the cap floor.

With just seven forwards, three defenders signed, and Mike Smith as their goalie, the Coyotes have a lot of room for change and the dollars to create it. Albeit by mandate, that is. In fact, the Coyotes have just five players on the docket for 2016-17. Be that as it may, their UFA's include Martin Erat and David Moss, while their RFA's include Mikkel Boedker, Mark Arcobello, John Moore and Brandon Gormley. Of those, the highest cap hits were achieved by Erat ($4.5M) and Boedker ($2.55M). Which means the desert will likely see a slightly different team in October, wherever they play.

Shane Doan said he's happy for former teammate Antoine Vermette.

Doan and Vermette were teammates with Arizona. "It goes without saying how good of a guy he is," Coyotes captain Shane Doan told over the phone Saturday night. "He is such an enjoyable guy to be around. I’m just so happy for him. He deserves it. We knew here what kind of performer he was in the playoffs. It was just a matter of time before he got his chance and he’d make the most of it." Vermette scored the game-winning goal in Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Final on Saturday. He and his teammates are one win away from winning the Stanley Cup.

Shane Doan is hoping that the Arizona Coyotes' soap opera is finally in its final act.

"There have been a lot of little skirmishes in recent years," Doan said. "Hopefully, this is the final one. The stake goes in. It comes out. You either live or you don't." The City of Glendale voted to terminate its arena deal with Arizona, opening the door to a legal fight with the team and once again raising the question if hockey will remain in Arizona. This certainly has the potential to be the final battle with Glendale either winning and the Coyotes moving or the Coyotes winning, securing that their lease deal stays intact. That being said, Arizona has provided so many twists and turns over the year that it would be best to never rule anything in or out.

GM Don Maloney said Shane Doan is motivated to help the Coyotes improve next season.

"He's back. He's refreshed. He knows what we need to do," Maloney said. "We're going to need leadership and good leadership, and he's been dragging this franchise along for five years. Maybe his role gets reduced somewhat. It's up to Tip and his staff, but he certainly is important to who we are, how we want to play, the image we want to show to the world. So I'm happy to say he's refreshed and excited to go to training camp." Some wondered whether or not Doan wants to be part of a rebuild, but he still has one season left on his deal with Arizona before those questions will be answered.

Shane Doan underwent toe surgery in May.

Doan is now fine and has started to work out with the Coyotes strength and conditioning coach. The 38-year-old veteran had only 14 goals and 36 points to go along with a terrible minus-29 rating. He has one year remaining on his contract as he is the only Coyote player with his roots dating back to when the franchise was in Winnipeg.

Shane Doan thinks the "urgency is going to be high" with the Coyotes after their rough 2014-15 campaign.

"We can't allow what happened last year to linger and be a part of this year because that was unacceptable in so many ways," Doan said. Arizona finished with just 56 points in 82 games. It's easy to see the Coyotes doing better in 2015-16, if for no other reason than because they set the bar so low. Plus they do have plenty of talent in their farm system, so the team should start to swing upwards. Unless they have a very productive offseason though, they wouldn't enter the 2015-16 campaign as favorites to make the playoffs.
Jun 5 - 9:43 AM

Shane Doan's future with the Coyotes is unclear, but for now it appears to be business as usual.

The 38-year-old winger has one season left on his contract and perhaps he doesn't want to finish his career on a rebuilding team. "I definitely want to be competitive, and I want to be on a team that has a chance," said Doan. "Obviously, I want to do it here." He is eager to see what changes the team makes during the off-season after Arizona finished 29th in the league in 2014-15.
Jun 4 - 3:29 PM

Shane Doan suffered through his worst season on the ice this millennium.

Doan had only 14 goals and 36 points this season and was a horrid minus-29 to boot, playing for the lowly Coyotes. Playing at the age of 38 means that Doan has seen the best of his playing years but with a center like Connor McDavid or Jack Eichel, he could return to the 20 goal and 50 point mark next season.
Apr 12 - 6:09 AM

Shane Doan is expected to play in Saturday's season finale against the Anaheim Ducks.

Doan comes in looking to finish his worst offensive season since 1999-00 strong. He's posted 14 goals, 36 points, 65 PIMs and 188 hits over 78 games.
Apr 11 - 8:05 PM

Shane Doan will be held out of Thursday's game due to a lower-body injury.

Doan also missed the third period of Tuesday's game due to the ailment. He might still be available for Arizona's season finale on Saturday.
Apr 9 - 3:29 PM

Shane Doan (lower body) hasn't been ruled out for Thursday's game.

Doan missed the third period of Tuesday's contest. The plan is to wait to see how he is Thursday before making the final determination about his availability. If there's a possibility of returning that quickly, then his injury probably isn't too severe, especially when you keep in mind that the Coyotes have nothing left to play for this season so there's no reason to rush him.
Apr 8 - 6:46 PM

Shane Doan (lower body) is being regarded as day-to-day.

Doan didn't play in the third period of Tuesday's contest due to the injury. Given that there's less than a week left in the regular season, it remains to be seen if he'll play again in 2014-15.
Apr 8 - 10:43 AM

Shane Doan suffered a lower body injury in the second period of Tuesday's game with Calgary and did not return.

Doan wasn't skating well and it makes sense that the Coyotes took their captain out with nothing left to play for this season. Doan has recorded 14 goals and 22 assists this season in 78 games.
