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."

Quote of the Day

I feel that responsibility, I've felt it for the last two years. We core guys get a lot of minutes, we get a lot of opportunity out there. Our teammates, the organization and fans look to us to be the guys to put the puck in the net and to create momentum out there.
