I am hoping Dean is able to lock up both Doughty and Kovalchuk to 12 year deals at 6.8 million a season. Doughty's contract structured at 6.8 a year for the contract and Kovalchuk's top heavy for the fist 7-8 years then diminishing the last 5 to 6.

That would keep our top 3 on even ground, no jealousy etc. Give us 3 decent cap freindly contracts vs a Crosby, Ovy, Malkin type 8.6 plus million.

Johnson on the other hand has not proven a thing. I would let him play out his final year and see which way he goes or if he was willing I would try a 1 year extention for 3 mil a year and re-look at it after that, as Smyth's heavy contract will be off the books.
