When Coyotes captain Shane Doan reported to New York last Thursday for an NHLPA labor meeting, his main responsibility was to engage in discussions about the league's collective-bargaining agreement and its looming expiration date.

But behind the scenes, picking a team remained a top priority for the 35-year-old free agent.

Doan's camp hoped to hear from prospective Coyotes buyer Greg Jamison by the end of the week to gain reassurance that his bid to purchase the team was still progressing.

Without that insight, Doan was expected to examine the 16 teams that have expressed interest in him and study the six offers already extended to determine where he could envision himself next season if he wasn't with the Coyotes.
