I totally agree with those thinking it'll be a 2 year deal similar to PK Suban. VV has not played enough NHL games to get that big of a raise (even though we know his value is higher long term). If he were to get big money now, DL probably offers him the same deal he signed Jack Johnson to.
Oh I am well aware of that.

Caphit /= Salary. Bonuses /= Salary. It's unlikely Doughty received all of his bonuses in the that final year, most bonuses are notoriously hard to get (there's a listing of what bonuses teams can offer and for how much. It's pretty limiting. People too often confuse bonuses and caphit with salary.
