NHL Free Agency: Top 5 Candidates to Land Shane Doan

Shane Doan will enter his 18th NHL season this year and has spent them all with the Winnipeg Jets/Phoenix Coyotes franchise. It is honestly hard to imagine him playing for any other team, as he has been the face of the Coyotes name ever since they came into existence.

Although his age is starting to become a factor, Doan's production has hardly slipped. Since the 1999-00 season, Doan has had at least 20 goals in every season except for the 2009-10 campaign (he had 18) and at least 50 points in every season except for in 2001-02 (he had 49).

With the big names like Suter and Parise already signed to new teams and Shea Weber's fate to be decided on Wednesday, Shane Doan is one of the top names left on the board.

While he is past his prime, the veteran leadership that Doan will bring to any franchise could be the last piece of the puzzle for the following teams to win them the Stanley Cup. He was awarded with the Messier Leadership Award in 2012 and still has a few more years left in the tank.
