Last night Phoenix Coyotes Captain Shane Doan was supposed to be talking with potential owner Greg Jamison over the phone, but we spent the entire day getting updates saying that as far as Doan's agent knew they hadn't spoken. While I'm not sure if they actually spoke, I am fairly certain that we are going to see a couple of people who know as much as the rest of us speculating on it. Hopefully they talked and everything was positive, especially since the news from Shane's agent doesn't seem overly positive, but hey he is doing what agents are supposed to do.
After the jump we have all our links for today, some links on the Doan Saga, some links from around the hockey world, and a story about a prospect who apparently can't handle his booze.

A little disclaimer, Shoalts said this, and we all know how accurate he is with the Coyotes details. But we know for a fact Coyotes fans everywhere are starting to hate Doan's agent.
