But he is coming off of his ELC, isn't he? Or did I misunderstand you?

I explained poorly.

Players signing their ELC before the age of 20 need four years of NHL experience to be eligible for arbitration.

So that excludes any player signing before the age of 20 from being eligible for arbitration when they come off of their ELC.

So what it boils down to, Drew Doughty is not eligible for arbitration until next summer, but obviously he'll have a long-term contract before then.

They're trying to say that if anyone offers Doughty an offer sheet, he'll decline it, and then LA will enact arbitration for him... I don't think it's that cut and dry, but that's the gist of it.

Again they are assuming that will happen, but everything is just speculation.

I know, I know. I was just teasing you guys. xD

If that's the case, then LA needs to lock him off before 7/1.

Not really, they'll match any offer sheet, so I don't see it being a major issue.

It would have to be a pretty outrageous offer for L.A. to let him go.

Yeah but that's still more money they'll have to pay him. Potentially a lot. Especially with teams so far below the floor this year.

Just cause you look like the gimp don't mean you play like the gimp!

not a big deal, all he does is thrown hipchecks and play the point on the second pp, the dude is worthless defensively

He was very good in their system and that is a great price tag... good signing for the Bolts, the only question now, is if he can stay healthy, but at that price tag, I guess it's not as big of a concern...

The problem with him is that he is so defensively liable that you almost always see 7 defensemen in the line up when he's playing. He gets minimal ES ice time. Although he can definitely be effective on your second PP unit he definitely comes with some pretty glaring drawbacks.

I dont know much about this guy, but I was under the impression alot of people were wanting him to come to Detroit. Not to replace Raffi, but Big E.

M.A. Bergeron has some solid puck moving skills and for $1M/y it's a good deal for Tampa imo

Brooks Laich signs six-year contract extension with Washington Capitals

$4.5 mil per season for Brooks Laich? There's some serious overpayment.

I don't know many people that wanted him here period, he's a good depth signing for TB and fits their system well, but I wouldn't want him here...

I like Brooks Laich and think he can do a lot for any team. But man, that is a ton of money. That is crazy. I can see players upping their asking price since the cap is so high.

I would have been all for him here at 2 to 3 tops, but that is a major overpayment

Daaaammit. I was really hoping the Wings would land him.

I think Laich could have landed 4.25 on the open market, the Caps paid what they felt necessary to keep him around.

Now seeing that price tag though, you gotta at least admit it was never happening here... that is at LEAST a mil more than he is worth...
