Doughty offered 5 year deal, ~$5.7 per; has not signed

http://lakingsnews.com/2011/06/25/un...s-5-year-deal/

This is a rumor right now. This is not confirmed. Thought I'd just post this here to open it up for discussion on the main board.

Don't shoot the messenger.

EDIT: If these are the terms of the deal, Doughty will be a UFA. The current CBA states a player will become a UFA after age 27 or 7 years in the league. This deal will bring Doughty to 8 seasons in the league.

But, here is tweet by TFP.

Decent deal. If he starts to look like Doughty of two years ago, a fantastic deal.

If not, I'm sorry mods. Just wanted to see what main boarders thought of it. Feel free to lock or delete if there are any problems.

Should be a good deal a couple of years down the line as he continues to improve.

I think 5 is a great length for an elite player. You never know what could happen. He could become injury prone, or end up having off ice issues at some point. I think the 8-10 year contracts are just way to big a risk

5 year deal averaging 5.7 mill a year, not to bad.


If true does that make him an rfa or ufa at the end of his contract ?


Also how credible is this guy

If you start eating into UFA years, the price is going to go up.

Plus I think teams are leery of giving out the big long term 10-12 year type contracts without knowing what the new CBA will be.

I think because it's a rumor it's okay. But, I really don't know.

To the 1st question, UFA. It would give him 8 NHL seasons. The cutoff for RFA is 7 seasons or age 27.

That would be awesome for the Kings.

Plus it would hopefully keep the price of re-signing Karlsson down.

Great deal. He's only going to get better.

Kings have already took on Richards contract, and to sign another player LONG term wouldn't be bad but it's just not necessary.

This deal is good because Doughty is still young, he's got another shot at hitting a home run if he can win a Norris or two in these years (Lidstrom and Chara have to slow down right?)

Poster above said UFA.

But regardless, at that price, this is a great deal!

I think he'd be a UFA becasue he would have played 8 seasons. Rule is 27 or 7 nhl season iirc.
