07:18 AM ET 07.19 | For going it alone when it came to negotiating, Dustin Brown did pretty well for himself. The average annual value of Brown's contract is $5.875 million, an increase from the $3.5-million salary the right wing will earn this season in the final year of the prior six-year deal negotiated by his former agent, Scott Norton. "I was more comfortable doing the contract on my own given the history I have with this team," said Brown, a nine-year King who counts Kings owner Philip Anschutz and his wife, Nancy, as friends. "That goes a long way in my comfort level to be in negotiations. We cut through negotiating tactics with no agent. If I had an agent, I believe I would still be in negotiations."

Brown's autobiography covers his solo negotiations. It's called 'The Kings and I".

So he was able to Hammerstein out a deal on his own.

Good move by Dustin. Saves himself the 10% agent fee on top of getting the raise.

There's a tie-in I promise. Regardless it's my favourite misheard lyrics.

I hope he noticed the small print where he is 'on call' 24/7. Sometimes you need that agent for dealing with the small stuff.
