This will convince Shane Doan to come to Vancouver

Written on September 14, 2012 at 07:45, by headtothenet

At 9:33 p.m. last night (Thursday), Phoenix radio host John Gambadoro tweeted the following regarding Shane Doan’s imminent decision:

Now, despite the fact Gambodoro is nowhere near as prolific as the legendary @HockeyyInsiderr, we’ll have to put our trust in him on this one. I’ve tried to keep my hopes down all summer as we’ve been told over and over that Doan would prefer to stay in Phoenix, but I can’t anymore.


OK, I need to breathe… the rest of this post is meant for Doan’s eyes only.

HTTN’s letter to Shane Doan

Dear Mr. Doan,

I know your decision is about more than just the contracts offered, but maybe it doesn’t have to be so difficult. Using precise market research technology, I’ve created a mock up — a life-like illustration, if you will — of what the fans’ reactions will look like in each city, depending on your choice.

If you stay in Phoenix:

The reaction at Vancouver’s Rogers Arena:
Sad Canucks Fan

The reaction at Phoenix’s Jobing.com Arena:
Empty NHL Arena

If you choose Vancouver

The reaction at Vancouver’s Rogers Arena (assuming you’re in the penalty box):
Canucks Flasher

The reaction at Phoenix’s Jobing.com Arena:
Empty NHL Arena

Do it for the fans, Shane!
