This is a future 6M+ dollar d-man that would have made 5M easy if he was a UFA.

I think all of us here wanted him to sign in the 4.5M range and he did for less than that! Not to mention this is a 7 year deal...great job DL and there is no doubt JJ loves this organization.

Fantastic deal. Very happy with it. Also very happy with the commitment to Johnson. Both he and Doughty need to be locked up long term. Very smart decision with not allowing him to leave the Kings. With the youth coming up. Johnson-Doughty will be a permanent pairing in the future regardless of what happens this season.

Great to have Jack locked up long term!

Now get it done with Doughty and we're good to go for a decent stretch.

...Hopefully this should finally end all the conspiracy theories and maybe allow some posters to really rethink a lot of the garbage about Jack, and his intentions, that was thrown around here for awhile. None of it has proven to be true.

oh wow, with all the nonsense that is thrown about, never thought i would read about an extension that long.

Love it for 2 reasons. It shows JJ's heart for the club to take a 7 year deal at what i see as a discount, and shows DL's loyalty to Jack to give him a lengthy contract like that, showing he isnt trade bait

How will Herby feel about his boy being locked up for seven years? Change his mind about Dean?

Atta Boy Matt

I have been getting pm updates from him for the past few weeks, Matt was all over this one and has been pretty consistent this year in as far as what he does anyone can be. Matt's a solid guy and an asset to our boards in my opinion. Like him or not the guy brings plenty of talk around here and doesn't get half the credit he deserves in my opinion.

GREAT deal/signing by DL. Great Job.

Complain about Lombardi's FA signings all you want, but he's building a great core in LA with reasonable deals given to character young players and showing them the commitment that he expects from them in return. JJ is breaking out this year offensively (25 assists so far, those are top NHL defenseman numbers) and is a competitor who turns it up when the games get going. Love this signing, Jack just keeps getting better and when we're in the middle of this contract we'll be loving the fact that he's getting paid well but we don't have to worry about him up and leaving. Something similar for Doughty (who has fallen down to earth this season) would make everything perfect.

Either way, Jack's as untouchable as Kopitar and Brown are now.

Hopefully a long commitment to JMFJ doesn't mean DMFD is signing 2-year contracts all the time.

Of course Matt's critics are silent. Give him his credit.

Good signing. I expect DD to get only 2 years, at about $9 million

Great signing by the Kings. He gave up four UFA years.

Very strong move by Johnson, just like his last contract, despite ridiculous rumors saying otherwise, he has proven his loyalty to the Kings. I am glad to have him for the long haul.

I'm impressed with Jack. He gave up his chance at the lottery and gave the Kings a very modest deal.
