    Default King's rate second to last in contract efficiency by The Athletic

    I got verbal beatings for saying the Dougty contract was bad but I think this is a pretty good assessment of the state of our contracts.

    The only caution I'd put on that article is how even Dom noted that if Doughty goes back to Norris Doughty the efficiency changes a ton. That doesn't even include any bounce back on kopis part. But yeah I would say the only surprising thing was that Detroit is worse. Kinda makes you wonder what Steve y has up his sleave.

    The Athletic also had Doughty's contract ranked as the second-worst in the league, but again, only based on last season which was easily the worst of his career.

    Doughty's contract was based on the last 3 years, but heavily weighted to last years.

    No one should be surprised.
    If the Nhl had Nfl cut rules, the Kings would let go a whole lot of players.

    In the same vein, the off-season so far:
    Los Angeles Kings

    In: Mario Kempe, Martin Frk
    Out: Brendan Leipsic, Nikita Scherbak, Dion Phaneuf
    Wins Added: 0.8 wins
    Salary Added: -$4.9M

    How did the Kings get almost a win better while shedding nearly five million dollars off their books while adding basically no one of significance? It’s as simple as the team buying out Dion Phaneuf, who had that much of a negative impact on the team.

    Yeah, but did all the STHs of the teams ahead of the Kings get a free beach chair?
