NHL Rumors: Coyotes, Islanders, Radulov and Top Remaining UFAs
Shane Doan of the Arizona Coyotes

On the Arizona Coyotes and Shane Doan …

John Shannon: Hearing that a Coyotes – Shane Doan deal is close. He’s not going anywhere.

John Shannon: When he signs, it will be for one year.

Craig Morgan: Source saying that free agent Shane Doan has “several offers,” but is focused on working out a deal with the Coyotes. It’s fair to say that a deal is not close.

On the New York Islanders …

Arthur Staple: Islanders GM Garth Snow said that he could see the Islanders adding another forward before the season starts – either through free agency or trade. They are set down middle – John Tavares, Brock Nelson, Ryan Strome and Casey Cizikas.

On Alexander Radulov

Pierre LeBrun: The Canadiens and Red Wings weren’t the only two teams that were interested in Radulov. He had a few two-year offers, but he wanted to be in Montreal.

Aivis Kalnins: The Canadiens, Red Wings and Panthers were interested in Radulov.

Slava Malamud: By walking away from CSKA, Radulov left about a $1 million on the table.
