Why? Duncan Keith signed one without stupid retirement years past 40. It is still up to the player and team to design a team friendly contract.

Also, what leads people to believe that Doughty wants a 15+ year contract as a 21 year old? He's probably looking for a Kopitar type deal, 5-7 years. Just because LA wants to lock him up for as long as possible doesn't mean that Doughty does. Most of these contracts are given to late 20's and early 30's players. None have signed them after their ELC.
