Rangers sign Pyatt, interested in Coyotes teammate Doan


The Rangers have made their interest clear in Doan, the 6-2, 228-pound right wing who recorded 50 points (22-28) last year before adding nine (5-4) in 16 playoff matches for the Western finalists. Doan, a right-handed shot who could move to the off-wing, has scored 20 or more goals in 11 of his past 12 seasons and has a career 788 points (318-470) in 1,198 career matches.

Doan, whose time with the organization predates by a year the move from Winnipeg to Phoenix in 1996-97, will decide his future next week after the situation regarding a lease between Glendale, Ariz., and prospective ownership comes into clearer focus.

Signatures are due by Monday on a referendum that would refer the recently reached lease agreement between the city council and prospective owner to the November general election. Seven candidates for the Glendale city council, including two contenders for Mayor, recently endorsed the referendum.

“As we’ve stated previously, Shane’s priority is to make a decision based on his loyalty to the club, but he wants to get a clearer idea regarding the franchise’s long-term future in Phoenix,” Bross said of Doan, who is coming off a five-year contract worth $4.75 million per.

    Carle to Tampa!

    Now what about Ryan, Nash, bouwmeester, luongo, semin.

    Wings are hurting on the backend.

    The lack of activity by the leafs has left me pretty bored. So I’m going to suggest some unrealistic trades.

    Thornton, Pavelski, Doherty, Hamilton
    Grabo, bozak, Lombardi, MacArthur, Franson, Colborne, 2nd 2014

    Connolly, Kulemin, Gunnarsson, D’Amigo, 1st 2013/2014, 1st 2015

    Or tender him a 1 year offersheet worth 7.8mil. The compensation Is 2 1sts, a 2nd, and a 3rd. If they match they can’t trade him for a year so he goes to free agency.

    Mueller 1 year 1 mil
    Barker 1 year 1mil
    Wolski 1 year 1 mil

      I don’t think you can get either of those 3 big name players without moving Gardiner or Kessel or Lupul.

      I think Toronto’s big move should be to go after Evander Kane.

      I think you either have to trade Colborne, Kadri, Blacker and a 2nd, or a 1st, one of Kadri or Colborne and a 2nd.

      The Deal has to be similar in price I believe as the Kessel trade.

      I think Kane is going to score like Kessel. but he brings jam. he is a hard nosed, physical player. Toronto needs that up front regardless if he is a centre or winger.

      With that, they should then move JVR to centre.

      Otherwise, they should trade upcoming UFA in 2013 Joeffrey Lupul to SJ for Pavelski straight up.

      Pavelski is one of the more underrated, consistent performers in the league. He is excellent two way player, who can play centre or wing, wins draws, can play the point on the PP, and is capable of scoring 25-30 goals. He’d help a lot.

      The new top 6 would be:


      It opens the door to use MacArthur and Bozak, two former top 6 members, to be traded to upgrade either goal, their D or their 3rd/4th lines

      It looks like the price is high for goaltending:

      Gillis it was said wants 3 big time assets, while Bernier is said to be worth a high end prospect and a high draft pick.

      The Leafs maybe should wait til the season starts and see how it goes, see who becomes available mid year. i think they’d be better served improving the D and being harder to play against.

      dude that offer sheet thing is brilliant. Heck I would talk to Weber and tell him I plan to give him an offer sheet with a compensation equaling a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd (not sure but I would think is something like $5M-ish with $4M paid as a bonus). Then tell him that they would immediately sign an extension (that they negotiated before hand), and bam the Leafs pick up Weber for a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd.

      If Nashville matches then they lose him to FA and Toronto has their previous negotiation as a starting point.

      Damn it Burke, time to let your hatred for offer sheets go.

  3. Really? They gave him 7 this year. You don’t get Weber by offering .8 more to steal him away.

    I doubt Wolski signs a contract for 1 mil.
