That's the problem. The Kings have over $9.9 mil in cap space right now.

How much do you offer Doughty before LA doesn't match? They match anything under $8 mil easily. $8.5 mil, they match but aren't gonna be real happy. I think you have to go north of $9 mil before they consider letting Doughty walk.

Is Drew Doughty really a $9 or a $9.5 million player?
