Shane Doan’s new four-year, $21.2 million contract includes a no-movement clause, RDS reports.

(Let’s take a moment for a wave of “too bad the Phoenix Coyotes don’t have a no-movement clause” jokes.)

It’s well-documented that the Coyotes’ captain has spent his entire NHL career with the Winnipeg/Phoenix franchise, so it shouldn’t be surprising that he received an NMC. Especially considering the many free agent suitors he attracted.

On the other hand, many will view that clause as a risk.

Doan will turn 36 in October and while he’s been remarkably durable for a power forward, his rugged style could wear his body down.

He scored 22 goals and 50 points in 79 games during the franchise’s most successful season yet.

        They’re moving the entire city of Phoenix to Seattle … that’s remarkable.

        FYI, where does jimw81 get his information because I’m watching the Phoenix news currently and Jamison is on the TV stating how the NHL had an “emergency meeting” last week where they unanimously approved him as owner. He also agreed to defer $20 M that the City of Glendale owes him on the deal for 5 years and the City of Glendale unanimously approved to sale to Jamison.
        Deal is supposed to be finalized next week (heard that before, right?)

        Either way, if the team moves anywhere, it would be Quebec City so I’m still confused where you get the information that the team is moving to Seattle. Please elaborate.

    No Fans equals NO REVENUE, which means no salaries for players. Who wins, NO ONE. Oh wait, the fans WIN, we save our hard earned money. Hmm, just saying. Tic, toc, that’s your NHL career passing you bye.

    As fans, we need to call Comcast, Directv, and Dish Network demanding a partially monthly refund for no NHL games on the NBC Sports Network.

    This way the fans don’t get screwed by the players or owners.

    The worst thing that could have happened to Phoenix(and even the Ialanders) was this lockout.Keep on killing that interest in those cities NHL

    Hmm, he’s old and this season is toast so I guess he won’t have to worry about moving anywhere at all, unless he decides to sell his place in Phoenix. He isn’t going anywhere via trade or even travel with no season to play.Hope you saved some of your money so you have something to live on for the rest of your life.
