Shane Doan could be the most desirable free agent left on the market, but he appears to be in no rush to make a decision.
Teams now appear willing to wait -- among them the Phoenix Coyotes, the franchise for which Doan has played every game of his NHL career.
Doan has expressed a desire to re-sign with the Coyotes, but is hesitant to do so while ownership questions remain.
Coyotes GM Don Maloney told the Arizona Republic that he doesn't mind waiting on Doan, believing it still "may be weeks" until Doan picks a team.
However, he remains confident that when Doan does make a decision, it will be to stay in Phoenix.
"I still remain confident that we will be able to sign Shane," Maloney said. "Nothing has changed in that respect. We still have regular communication despite everything you see and read."
