Yes, and then we could offer up our next four first round draft picks in the process. No thanks.

No, he won't be pissed off if we don't get Doughty, because it will mean the team hasn't mortgaged its future for a D-man who suffered a major concussion last season.

What are the odds that one of those first round picks turns out to be anywhere close to the player Doughty is? We're talking about a 21 year old whose already one of the best in the game. He would be the face of the defense for the next 15 years. I would do it in a heartbeat. Won't happen though.

Doughty is the type of player that doesn't become available very often and considering the state that our defence is in at the moment, I would take the gamble on him in a heartbeat...
He will be a perennial Norris finalist with Weber for years to come...

That's precisely why L.A. would match an offer sheet.

Holland doesn't give up draft picks. He'll explore the UFA market.

well there is a catch... As long as our offer is below 7.8 million then we would give up only 2 1st round picks and a 2nd and a 3rd. Yes that is a still a steep price but I highly doubt we draft a Doughty character with the 3rd and 2nd and if we stay competitive our 1st round picks will be 25 and later. This isn't like the leafs giving up a the picks and getting the 2nd overall pick. I say we offer him around 7 and either jack the price up on LA or we get him and he is our Lidstrom replacement 1 year ahead of time. Lidstrom, Doughty, Kronwall, Stuart as our top 4. That would be AMAZING!!!

It would have to be an absolutely insane offer for L.A. to let him go. It's a pipe dream to expect him to leave for another team via offer sheet.

We'd only have to give 4 1sts if it was over 7.8 million. Anything up to is 1 2sts, a 2nd and a 3rd. Well worth it, IMO. Four 1sts would be too much though.

But, there is a 99% chance that LA matches it anyway.

Who knows-- some of those first round picks could be lottery picks (assuming Lidstrom retires next summer). If Lidstrom wasn't close to retiring I'd be more comfortable gambling on 4 first round picks. Ask Leafs fans what happens when you gamble with 1st rounders.

Not that LA wouldn't match any offer Holland made, but you see what I'm getting at. We can't assume this team will be a top team after Lidstrom retires.

I undestand the chances are very slim, but would you rather him get a contract offered to him by us so LA doesn't get him for so much of a steal? Best case scenario, we get him. Worst case he has to sign for more in LA. Just dont offer more then 7.8 and if we get him we only give up 2nd round picks and with Doughty in our line up I don't see us Pick in the top 5 in the next 2 season. That is when the two first rounders would occur. With Datsyuk, Zetterberg Lidstrom, Doughty, Franzen. We wont be getting Lottery Picks. If we don't get Dougthy we will have our 25-30th picks and no harm no foul.

I think he'd take this offer, LA is now a contender and Doughty has already played with Richards on Team Canada, Gold Medal winners, and there's no way LA would let him slip away.
