    Drew has been quite poor vs the Knights and has been a large reason the Kings are on the verge of being swept.

    Will it hurt him come contract time?

    Yes, 2 games is what will determine how much he gets on his next contract.

    I don't think Doughty's play has been poor. The problem is with Doughty, Kopitar, and Quick, the Kings are a mile wide and an inch deep.

    Man I hope so, the Kings need to sign him at a discount ;)


    Seriously he is who he is. A great defensemen who is an absolute arrogant A-hole. But the man is one of the best players in the world

    No. If he wins the cup next year, people will forget all about this.

    Will next year's playoffs not be after Doughty is likely to sign his new contract?
    He is eligible to start talking to the Kings July 1st.

    The problem is not with Quick. It’d be nice if he saved that one on Neal last night, but he has been outstanding otherwise.

    As for this thread question: NO :facepalm:

    Yes it is, but if the kings are using this years playoffs as a reason for him to take less money, then he definitely won't re-sign then.

    Doughty had a great season, he might win a Norris, unfortunately he is gonna get paid.

    Not a chance. The whole league knows what he is capable of already. There will be a bidding war if Doughty goes to UFA.

    Definitely. At the start of the playoffs he was a D1, but after the 2 games he has played he's clearly now a D3-4

    No. Someone will back a dump truck full of money up to his house.

    Literally zero effect. He's coming off a season where he'll either finish 1/2 in the Norris race and already has a great playoff rep.

    My point is after Doughty, Kopitar, and Quick the Kings have very little depth outside of Carter.

    Probably not. Regardless of this series Doughty's among the league's best defensemen, he'll get a good contract either from LA or another team.

    By "this series" you mean "one play" or "two plays" depending on how much you want to blame Doughty for the goal (literally Toby's guy, even if he could have read it better) or how personally you took the taunting.

    He was marvelous in game 1 and in most of game 3.

    Well these two games have forever confirmed Matthews as a playoff choker.

    Not in the slightest.

    His play has hurt his team in game 2, and to a lesser extent in game 3- but that will have no effect on the huge payday he has coming.

    Yes. At this point he'll be lucky to get a contact in the ECHL. :sarcasm:

    Absolutely. A 4 game series in one year will completely erase a decade of stellar Norris play (including this past 82 game season).

    He'll be lucky to get a 2 year / $3mil contract.

    Ahhh my bad, I should’ve read your post closer...now I see what you were saying about a mile wide/inch deep.

    You have no idea what you are talking about. If he was injured, I would guess that would hurt his next contract too? Right?

    I think he has a strong chance of being a Norris finalist this year. So.... yeah.... no....

    No, Doughty will get paid handsomely.
    L.A will lock him up for 8 more years.
