Was last night the only game Shane Doan will play at MSG this season? Not so sure of that.Carp at Rangers Report mentioned Doan as someone the Rangers could look to go after as well.

Doan, 35, has a cap hit of $4.5 million this season and is a UFA at the end of the season. He has a no-movement clause.
He has spent his entire career in the Coyotes/Jets organization.
Doan has become the hot topic over the last 24 hours and would fit in nicely with the Rangers. I also think that Ray Whitney, 39, is another guy on Phoenix who could be interesting. He is also in the last year of his contract and has a NMC and a cap hit of $3 million. Whitney showed some nice jump last night and is a veteran who has won a Cup before. Nonetheless, these two guys will be ones to keep an eye on as we move toward the trade deadline. The relationship between Don Maloney and Glen Sather could come into play again
Whitney has 14 goals and 22 assists this season.
