Unfortunately, Doughty's defensive game leaves a bit to be desired, I would guess $6m would be fair value for both sides.

Just another example of another player not willing to work with his team to ensure they aren't *****ed somewhere down the line.
Doughty needs more consistency. His defensive and offensive game have both been stellar, they just have trouble being there every night, but of course he is 21, so he can ride that for a little longer. As for the contract, that is up to Meehan. Doughty isn't twirling his mustache and cackling manically... They pay agents considerably, it's best they use them, and that is what Doughty is doing, just like a vast majority of the NHL.
