Getting Doughty will be a pipe dream; Johnson on the other hand is a different story.

Yeah the only way we could get him would be if we gave up a ton of players for him in trade or if he wanted out of LA so bad that he signed a short term deal to hit free agency. Neither would happen in the real world.

Tootoo does NOT belong on this team. He is classless and I would rather see the Wings be bad than classless. I feel the same way about Bertuzzi as well, but he at least CAN make the team better. With Tootoo the team becomes worse and in danger of being classless. Would you have liked Claude on the team? Or Roy? No. So why would you be okay with that POS.

not saying its going to happen but Lids might be done after this season, Johnson Doughty,Simmonds,Moller and Bernier are all FA at the same time, which puts the Kings in a bad spot because at least Bernier,Johnson,Doughty and Simmonds are going to get raises, and if Lids retires and Doughty hits the market you can bet your child/unborn child Holland is going to try and bring him in.

But of all their other D men, the Kings are going to dump the most salary on Doughty. We won't be able to match what they will give him. Lid's 6mil freed will be nothing. He'll get at LEAST 8m with a cap of probably 6. They'll do a long term deal, I'd bet on it.

8mil for Doughty? No way.
7mil is tops and that's if they overpay by an extra million.

Doughty is great, but not that great.

It is 99% certain the Kings are going to get Doughty signed before or during Free Agency.

Doesn't mean I can't dream of Detroit getting him anyway.

I don't wanna see Jack Johnson here. He was a -15 on a Kings squad that made the playoffs last year. He was a -5 in the playoffs against Vancouver as well. Just doesn't seem defensively solid.

No Doughty is great. The sky is the limit for him. In junior he never touched the weight room and then once he got drafted he hit the weights hard and look now, he's 20 and has a norris nomination. Wait 3 years when he really fills out and gets some experience, it won't surprise me if he becomes an all time great

RIP BOB PROBERT #24

maybe Doughty wont want to stay in LA or doesnt want a long term deal, look at Bobby Ryan was offered a 4 and 5 year deal but says he only wants a 3yr deal tops

Probably because he won't have to face up against quality d-men like Bourque, Leetch, MacInnis, Chelios, etc. at such an early age.

Yeah. 'Cause Brain Campbell makes $7.1 million. I'm sure Doughty can't do a spin-o-rama quite as well as Campbell. He must be worth far less than him. At least to the Ice Capades.

Doughty is the real deal and there's absolutely no way LA will let him go.

True - however he does have some good upside to his overall game...Haven't seen much of him to be honest, but he did well in the Olympics.

Doughty is far and away my #1 choice to "replace" Nick. I'm hoping they can seduce him with the thoughts of carrying on the legacy or something. I, too, believe Doughty's gonna go down as an all-time great.

I don't know. Is there going to be anyone better than Doughty? Holland may very well sell the farm for Doughty simply because that would be the only chance to get a truly big difference maker on the back end to be the backbone of the team.
