The last time Coyotes coach Dave Tippett was at Arena he started brainstorming possible line combinations for next season.

On his whiteboard, he wrote everyone's name with a black marker -- everyone except captain Shane Doan's. For that name, Tippett used a red pen.

But when he arrived back at the arena on Friday for the announcement Doan had re-signed a four-year deal with the Coyotes, Tippett quickly erased Doan's name and rewrote it in black.
