Coyotes acquire Derek Stepan, Antti Raanta from Rangers

The Arizona Coyotes continued their overhaul Friday, acquiring center Derek Stepan and goalie Antti Raanta from the New York Rangers for defenseman Anthony DeAngelo and the seventh overall pick in the draft. The Coyotes have made massive changes since Andrew Barroway became sole owner this month, trading No. 1 goalie Mike Smith, parting ways with head coach Dave Tippett and opting not to offer captain Shane Doan a contract. The 27-year-old Stepan had 17 goals and 38 assists in 81 games with the Rangers last season. Raanta went 16-8-2 with four shutouts and a 2.26 goals-against average in...

The Impact of Shane Doan’s Departure on Fans and the Need For Unity

With the face of the franchise gone, fans are in dissent when unity is most needed. The Shane Doan Era of Arizona Coyotes hockey has ended. There is no sweet talking or dancing around that fact. It wasn’t the right ending, but it ended and the team is going to use this opportunity to the best of its ability by integrating the growing pool of younger talent into the lineup. Doan, for as long as the Coyotes have existed, has been the face of the franchise. He was a sign of integrity, of strength, and loyalty. With his unsanctimonious departure, by way of the organization’s “corporate...

Zdeno Chara is the longest tenured NHL captain

Zdeno Chara is the longest tenured NHL captain

At 12 seasons, Big Zee now stands alone, with some talented company right behind him. Shane Doan was the NHL's longest-tenured captain. That title now belongs to Zdeno Chara. https://t.co/9zxPWKMQaG— Adam Vingan (@AdamVingan) June 19, 2017 Shane Doan was made captain of the Arizona (then Phoenix) Coyotes in 2003, leading them as far as the Western Conference Finals in 2012, but no further. With the news of Doan not returning to Arizona, that now leaves our very own Zdeno Chara as the longest tenured NHL captain. Given the “C” upon his arrival on July 1st, 2006, he helped the...

Doan’s Departure: It wasn’t perfect but it’s real

Reality bites, but facing it might be the best thing for both the Coyotes and Shane Doan. In a perfect world, the Arizona Coyotes would have found a way to accelerate the rebuild that started just two years ago to win a Stanley Cup, and long time Captain Shane Doan could ride off into the sunset like the cowboy he’s always wanted to be. BREAKING: The world is not perfect. It was announced on Monday that the Coyotes and Doan would be parting ways. When the season starts in October, for the first time in its 21 years of existence in the desert, the franchise will not be announcing his...

The case for and against Shane Doan joining the Tampa Bay Lightning

With his departure from the Arizona Coyotes, speculation is flying about where Doan will land. Winnipeg Jets and Phoenix/Arizona Coyotes forward Shane Doan will not be brought back by the Coyotes for another season. Doan is a rarity in the league, especially ever since free agency allowed players to freely move around. He has played every game of his NHL career for the same franchise. That franchise has had three different names, but he’s been with them all the way. Now Doan has a choice to make: retire having only played for one franchise, or take a shot at winning a Stanley Cup? The...
