Coyotes use Easter Bunny to shoot down Shane Doan trade rumors

From the Arizona Coyotes:

The @SportsHubAZ Twitter account maintains that it is run by one Casey Gagnon, an “Arizona native, ASU grad, professional sports writer and history buff.”

Full disclosure: on Dec. 30, we cited Gagnon’s report that the Coyotes’ sale to Andrew Barroway was on the verge of closing. Which it did, on Dec. 31.

And so, given he was right about that, we admit to have been following Gagnon’s tweets about Coyotes captain Shane Doan.

A sampling:

Granted, those tweets don’t mesh with Doan told ESPN’s Pierre LeBrun in mid-December: “When I made the decision a few years ago to stay with the team at 36 (years old), I said: ‘You know what? This is the bed I’m sleeping in. This is what I want.”

But considering the current state of the Coyotes, we’ll go ahead and keep monitoring the situation anyway.

Just to be safe.
