What are your thoughts on Shane Doan possibly opting to pursue a Stanley Cup with another team?

Marcus Velasco — Playing with one team for your entire career is a remarkable achievement, however if Shane Doan were to be traded to a team that eventually won the Stanley Cup how can we be mad as Coyote fans.

He has done everything for this franchise and has earned the right to be traded if he pleases.

I think he should pursue it because he deserves to end his career in pursuit of sports most prized trophy.

Drew WaltersThinking about Doan leaving makes my heart hurt.

Few players have given what Doan has to a team, city, and fan base, and while I would love to see him retire having only played for one franchise, I will support his decision 100% if he wants to take a shot at winning a Stanley Cup. He deserves it.

I can also see the value in allowing the rest of the team to spend part of a season without his leadership. It would be the perfect opportunity for a new leader to step forward.

Ultimately, it doesn’t matter which path he chooses. He’ll always be Captain Coyote.

Alex Temes — My feeling on this topic are much like that Kermit the Frog meme where Kermit says one thing, then argues with himself.

I want Shane Doan to retire a Coyote. But I also want Shane Doan to get a real shot at a Stanley Cup run. I’ll be happy for him either way though and I hope he gets a fair shot at the Hall of Fame in a few years.
