08:21 AM ET 08.31 | The Kings made a move that sends the ball back into Drew Doughty's court. After a long lull in negotiations, the Kings have refined some concepts they previously discussed with representatives of [Doughty] and gave him choices for the duration of a new contract, General Manager Dean Lombardi said Tuesday. Lombardi said he spoke Monday with Doughty's agent, Don Meehan, and made an offer that "codifies what we've been talking about for a while." Lombardi said the offer includes "different lengths for him to consider," likely six to eight years. "Everything's been amicable. We're waiting to hear back from them. They said they'd get back to us in a day or two," Lombardi said.

Funny how a 40 point season suddenly makes a player feel that they are entitled to way more money than they are worth...And don't get me started on what Shea Weber was awarded.

Black in your uniform doesn't make you togher or better. At least the purple/yellow colour scheme was different. they should go back to the olde look from the Rogie Vachon days

Don't they mean puck? There is no ball is hockey.

It's LA. The deal will either be a slam dunk or a home run. It will never be a one-timer from the blueline.

I agree with what you saying but when the cap goes up so do salaries. Think of what some of these guys would be asking for and getting if there wasn't a cap.

Excellent idea spiny. I feel like the NFL thread has been dumbed down by years of Brett Favre posts. I think we could take them.

Sorry Spiny, most of the other thread posters don't even qualify for "Are You Smarter Than A Fifth Grader."

The "Chevrons"? pretty bad...I agree.

Oh man, we're taking on the rest of the world this early? Following the time honored tradition of protecting your friends in the bar, who do you want me to hit first?

What is Doughty thinking? 6.5M a year for 9 years wasn't enough? He's good, no doubt, but is he really worth 6.5M per year?
