As July closes, the Red Wings sit and wait on Shane Doan.

It's well known that Doan, 35, wants to stay with the Phoenix franchise, the only club he's ever played for and the one he's captained since 2003. It's equally well known that the Coyotes have ownership/arena/attendance issues, and Greg Jamison's unsuccessful attempts to finalize the purchase of team from the NHL have left Doan wary of re-signing. So, other teams expressed interest in Doan, including the Wings, and that's where it still stands.
