Gambadoro adds that the hangup with Doan signing with Phoenix is that the City of Glendale has reneged on its original lease agreement deal with Greg Jamison.
It was reported last week that Doan had a 4-year, $21.5 million agreement in place with Phoenix.
...this whole Doan saga has dragged on for way too long. If true, I'll be happy to see it over. And even happier he didn't end up in New York.
And why is Doan making his decision by 5pm today?...
NHL players have to sign by today if they want their contracts to count under current CBA. Work those signing bonuses, fellas. #guaranteed$— Jesse Spector (@jessespector) September 14, 2012
...Del Zotto better get his agent on the horn with Sather. You know, since his contract situation is out of his control.
H/T to Puck Daddy.
@TheNYRBlog So glad to hear we are out of running for Doan. If this new cap goes through, #NYR will have enough problems.
Sather won't sign DelZ by 5 today because the Dolans will be in a better position after the lockout to get him cheaper. If we lose an entire season there will be other free agents on the market.
@TheWrage @TheNYRBlog Yes thank God...let him average 17-18 goals a year for the next 3.5 years for one of those teams
