However, Coyotes GM Don Maloney quickly reiterated that Doan was staying in the desert.
"Shane is the soul of this franchise, as long we we're here and he wants to stay here then he'll be here," Maloney told ESPN.com. "I have no question whatsoever that if we get an ownership group in place, then we'll get a deal done with Shane. He's not going anywhere, unless of course he came to us and asked us otherwise. He's still a very good player and we want him here for a few more years."
As for the trade deadline, Maloney has yet to decide if his Coyotes will be buyers or sellers as he prefers to see where they are in the standings in a few weeks.
If Maloney chooses to sell, left wing Ray Whitney, who is also slated for unrestricted free agency this summer, could draw the interest of several teams.
However, if the Coyotes can make a successful run in the upcoming weeks and feel like they can become potential buyers at the deadline, Maloney mentioned that his club still has cap space to add a player or two.
The Coyotes currently sit in 12th place of the Western Conference, three points out of a playoff spot.
