Shane Doan talks Dustin Brown and LA Kings controversy

After the LA Kings defeated the Phoenix Coyotes in the Western Conference Finals some shady things apparently went down in the post-game handshake line. If you’re unfamiliar with the particulars, you’re highly encouraged to first check out these few articles:

Now, let’s flip over to the other side. We caught up with Coyotes’ captain Shane Doan at the NHL Awards in Las Vegas this week – here’s his take on things…

If you missed it, yesterday we posted an interview with St Louis Blues coach Ken Hitchcock – who had a lot of positive things to say about Kings dman Drew Doughty – check that out here…and prior to that, we also posted our interview with LA goalie Jonathan Quick – that’s available here.

  1. great article, too bad Doan’s laugh is awkward. i expected a manlier laugh from such a tough dude. #BlackShirtKarma

  2. I guess that leadership…. Maybe he won’t even be playing with Yotes next year… Both Doan and Tippet owe Sutter and Brown an apology if not for the handshake line than what was said to the Media after games 3 & 5…

  3. SHANE DOAN – APOLOGIZE! YOU OWE EVERY KING AN APOLOGY AND SO DOES MIKE SMITH… HE OWES A BIGGER ONE! I OFFICIALLY HATE PHOENIX MORE THAN THE DUCKS!

  4. Media Guy says:

    It is hard to hate a guy like Doan. Great to see he is a great guy off the ice. Class guy. Great questions Mayor m

  5. DOAN YOU JUST GOT 75% of the respect i lost for you back. the other 25% will never be there unless you’re playing for the kings or the redwings. peace out and keep your head up, brownies coming for you.

  6. Bringing up something that happened over a month ago at the NHL Awards ceremony shows our lack of class. Get over it – we won the cup.

    Brownie admits he plays on the line and some would say over the line now. Playing like that will get you wins but also enemies. Deal with it and stop focusing on this incident. There will be plenty more now that we have a big target on our back.

  7. It wasn’t Doan that kept bringing that stuff up. I thought he was gracious. Take him on my team anytime. I’m a 30 year Kings fan.
