09:18 AM ET 08.04 | The San Jose Sharks are among the favorites to land the services of free agent forward Shane Doan, a source has told CSNCalifornia.com. Doan, who will turn 36 in October, is the top unrestricted NHL free agent still available. According to the source, the Sharks, who are generally very tight-lipped about personnel decisions, have flown "under the radar" in their pursuit of Doan. Doan reportedly met with the Vancouver Canucks on Tuesday, and has also drawn interest from the New York Rangers, Philadelphia Flyers, Pittsburgh Penguins and Buffalo Sabres. His preference is to remain in Phoenix, but the uncertain ownership situation there has led to him exploring other options.

They would be better off signing Evander Kane to an offer sheet...

That could set off an Sharks/Jets clash.

Is the NHL up for "West Side Story?"

The NHL has had its own musical going for a number of years now...it's called Rent.
