Predators GM would be interested in Doan

The Nashville Predators would be "very interested" in Shane Doan should he decide to leave the Phoenix Coyotes, general manager David Poile told The Tennessean on Tuesday.

"First of all, I’m hoping the Phoenix situation gets resolved and he can stay there and finish his career in Phoenix," Poile said to the newspaper. "If he decides it’s not a fit for him and would like to pursue other opportunities, the Predators would be very interested."

Doan, an unrestricted free agent, is waiting to see if the team will stay in Arizona under new ownership. It is believed several teams have an interest in the 35-year-old forward.

Poile, whose team lost defenseman Ryan Suter when he signed as a free agent with the Minnesota Wild this offseason, said he has started negotiations with defenseman Shea Weber.

"It’s ongoing and hopefully we’ll talk later in the week," Poile said. "I would say (we discussed) everything about the Predators, where we are and where we’re going and what part Shea has with that."

When things aren't going well for us in this city [Toronto], I think there is a lot of overanalyzing going on. You've got the most passionate fans in the world here and a lot of (media) coverage, so you know there's going to be a lot of people giving their two cents worth on us.
