    Crazy contract. Good for Fowler. What's the saying, you're only worth what someone is willing to pay you?

    Either way, this is a big deal for the NHL dman. Huge benchmark for some up and coming guys.

    Where ever Doughty lands, someone is gonna have to back up the Brinks truck and pay him. I know he's 2 yrs older, but he's clearly better than Fowler and has 2 cups. Honestly I believe Fowler should be playing forward but that's another topic. Wonder if GM Blake, a former dman, pays Doughty and gives him the contract he"ll be seeking.

    Congrats to Fowler on the contract. Smart move by Anaheim.

    Can we start the betting for the buyout year on the Fowler contract?

    I wonder if Doughty is going to give Blake the old Blake treatment.

    Nah, he doesn't have the 'anti-stones' that good ol Blakey showed us that season.
    Has anyone since (in any sport) taken the 'C' or 'A' off their jersey as a result of contract negotiations?

    Doughty held out until well after the season started during his contract year, choosing to sit on the sidelines while his teammates went to work. He hardly has a history of putting the team first in his negotiations.

    If he gets less than Max, I'll be surprised.

    Doughty didn't have a contract. He was an RFA and he signed two weeks into training camp. There was no holdout.

    You are correct, I remembered that wrong. Missed several preseason games, not regular season games.

    The point still remains.

    The point still remains that no player ever stepped down from a C or A on their sweater because of contract?
