Is Drew Doughty the real answer?
 
I read the following article and got me thinking...

What would it take to get Drew Doughty? Especially compared to other potential defenseman. For example, Weber and Suter who could cost a lot more IMO (especially Weber).

Doughty's contract is huge which could be a stumbling block, but for argument's sake could JVR straight up get Doughty? Or JVR+ for Doughty?

Both are young, up and coming stars who are signed long term, and could fill a void in the other teams lineup.

The kings cant score and the flyers need a defensemen.

Doughty needs a change of scenery and some would argue JVR does too.

I like JVR a lot and usually am arguing to keep him in a flyers uniform, however, if I have the chance to land Doughty and have him in for the next 7-10 years I would do it in a heartbeat.

Thougts? Other potential parts to trade?

LA can keep Doughty and his monstrous contract.

That said, a JVR swap for Doughty straight up would be highway robbery...

The conversation would start with Schenn+JvR++

Krishna 12-20-2011 12:23 PM

Dear god no.. He is good but i don't want that contact.

DrinkFightFlyers 12-20-2011 12:24 PM

JVR straight up for Doughty would be absurd.

Link doesn't work.

I would love drew doughty, as I still think he's going to be one of the best defensemen in the league. I think he's just having an off year.

However, I think it's pretty unrealistic, as la would be foolish to trade him just because he hasn't played as well as he has in the past so far this year. They know what he's capable of, and he's still very young.

Doughty at 7 mill < weber at 10 mill


Id rather have so many more players than having to pay doughty 7 mill.

With that contract LA signed their fate to the success of doughty

Do you think it would take more to get doughty or weber?

Doughty. Easily.

Weber has one RFA year left. If Weber was signed long-term, ever at a $7M caphit, then he would cost more than Doughty.

Trade Bryz, JvR, Schenn, a 1st and a 2nd for

Rinne
Weber

I have no idea what I just wrote.

Didnt he already get knocked out for a couple games with a concussion they were playin off as a shoulder injury? It sounds like we really are gonna wind up with Suter. Dont you think they'd rather keep Weber now that they got rinne locked up?

Kaktus* 12-20-2011 01:27 PM

I'd buy JVR a ticket to LA.

Spongolium* 12-20-2011 01:29 PM

I would seriously consider waiting before jumping on the doughty bandwagon. He should of been a healthy scratch a few times this season. That's how bad he has been in stretches.

Anything behind this beyond speculation? Not being smart. Just curious.

funghoul 12-20-2011 01:35 PM

complete and utter B.S on my part. After Poile threw out their available now and with the whole scouts here and there thing plus Rinne being signed and Weber being their captain i would just assume if were gettin someone from Nashville it'd be Suter.

Ah. np. Just got hopeful for a moment (as long as it was a fair trade).

That's almost as absurd as the thought of prying away Richards AND Carter from the Flyers :D

Throw in Bob instead of Bryz and they may actually consider it?! Not sure how this could work cap wise...

Gert B Frobe 12-20-2011 02:53 PM

I'm not a huge Doughty fan. Granted I haven't seen him play much - but it seems like he disappears for games at a time. I guess for a defenseman that can be good - but not so much when your team is losing.

His contract is pretty bad but would be ok if you could send some money the other way.

Bad link, assuming bad source. Thread closed.
