If it's not about the money, what is it about?

Is this an issue that was around from last year that wasn't resolved, or is it an issue that has arisen since the negotiations/off-season?

I'm curious now.

two possible outstanding issues with DOughty's negotiations

1) term - Lombardi wants Doughty to give up ufa years if he is going to be paid 6 mill plus. Otherwise, the offer is a lot less. Meehan doesn't want to give up any ufa years but wants his 6-7 mill.

2) kopitar is not as good a player as DOughty and his contract was 12% of total team cap space when he signed. The rising cap has reduced the % hit but Lombardi wants to use his actual dollars as the ceiling. Meehan can't agree to this because it sets a bad trend for all his clients. We aren't talking Crosby, we are talking Kopitar who is a very good player but he ain't no Crosby or Lidstrom
