    What exactly did you not say? "Too high" is somehow not a negative judgement towards Kopitar's contract?
    Can we not do this? Can't we just once have a nice dinner together!?!

    Anything under $10M is a steal, and it wont happen.

    I fully expect Doughty to demand $12M+ , same as I expect from Karlsson

    I expect he gets around $11.5M/year

    12 milion is 15% of our total team budget of 80 milion. Not saying he's not worth a lotta cheddar but ouch.

    You infer I disparaged Kopitar, which is not the case.

    Deano giving away big contracts is what hurts the team long haul. Hence where we are today.

    Clearly Kopi earns his money (or at least this year for sure), however it's the GM who sets the bar.
    Where Deano set the bar is where Doughty starts from and will surely be much higher.

    I wonder if we're going to see no-movement contracts come back to this team. That was one thing Dean did right, squashing that nonsense.

    Well, Kopi has a 4 yr NMC with his new deal, plus a limited NTC for the remainder of the contract. I expect Dewy to get something similar

    I don't think any player is worth that. Even if they player is that good, it is too much of the total budget to allocate to a single player. That is a contract that hamstrings a franchise. The only thing worse is the star player being paid like a superstar because the team needs to sell their local market that they have somebody who is great (OEL and Eichel come to mind).

    I'll split the difference between these 2 good guesses and say he takes the same 8 year $88m as Tavares. No significance really, since they don't play the same position. Just because 11 is a nice even number. Even though it's odd.

    Doughty has been arguably the best dman in the league for years. He's consistent night to night and game to game. Kopitar mailed it in 2 seasons ago. That's the difference.
