I was a big fan of the JMFJ trade when it happened but I'm still waiting for Jack prove his worth. A 10 year contract for 5.5 is ridiculous imo. He either gets a short term team for $3-4 mill... or he gets a long term deal at a lower cap hit.
I agree with the JJ part. still a wildcard that could go either way.
As for Doughty, he grew up a Kings fan, was drafted 2nd overall by them and is living a Cinderella story. If he is smart and wants to be part of a long term winning team he would forfit a little salary to give us that extra bit of caproom. I am hoping for a 12 yr 70 - 72 million contract which = 5.83 mil - 6 mil a year. He gets long term stability and is a free agent at 32, where he can still get another big contract. It may not be as high as a few of the guys but its more then Keith, Weber, Pronger, Visnovsky, Green, Markov, Souray, Robidas and Seabrook are making.
