Kings Sign Drew Doughty to 8 Year Deal

http://www.nhl.com/ice/news.htm?id=5...id=DL|NHL|home

Don't know how well this is gonna turn out, but sources are saying an average of 7 mil per year... definitely what he was looking for. Hope it works out for them, but it seemed to me like he wanted out.

Looks like he'll be in Germany with the team.

That's good for those of us going to the games next week.

Thank god, between the trade posts about getting him and Zach Bogosian I was going to delete my whole HF membership.

Now we can all go back and imagine us getting another player... Quick someone give me a top player that will cost JT,KO,Bailey,NINO and the 2012,2013 and 2014 first round pick in order to get because the price is always so high when you deal with the Islanders

I guess once we signed Staios the Kings saw Garth wanted to go another direction and took their trade offer off the table and had to settle for signing Drew instead of getting a bunch of our leftovers and maybes.

The kings wanted us to take kopitar also, and Garth didn't want to hurt baileys development with reduced icetime.

You know, word around the league is everyone knows that Garth is a man of his word and a stand up guy.
