When Shane Doan signed a new four-year contract with the Phoenix Coyotes earlier this month, he passed up an opportunity to sign with a contending team and win a Stanley Cup.
Doan has been with the Coyotes organization going back to its days in Winnipeg and last season's run to the Western Conference Finals was the furthest he had been in the playoffs in his entire career.
The Coyotes aren't talented enough to win the Stanley Cup with their current roster, but if the team is sold in the near future, which is entirely possible, the new owner(s) would likely invest a lot more money into adding players to the team via free agency and trades.
In that scenario, Doan would have a better chance at winning a championship before he retires.
