Unconfirmed Report Of Drew Doughty’s 7 Year Deal Or Offer

I am writing this on the run so time is short but I heard Matt Barry has tweeted: “7 years for Doughty is what I am hearing.”

I don’t believe he has offered any other details as I write this at 7:30pm on Tuesday. If he has, I am sure someone will post it in the comment section.

Normally, I don’t post anything unless it is confirmed by our source as reliable. This has not been confirmed. I am going to make an exception to that rule and tell you what we have heard but please consider (1) this information has not been confirmed to the point I can represent it is reliable and (2) we are working on getting more details but we have one thing beyond our control (time) working against us due to a hectic schedule in the next 48 hours. I will do my best for you.

The unconfirmed report we have heard is there are two deals on the table. The first is a 9 year deal that is less than $7 million. The second deal is 7 years at $7 million ish. What ish? Can’t confirm any of that right now.

Now, Matt’s tweet does not state whether the 7 years he tweeted (without dollars) is the most recent offer, if a contract is imminent or something else. For those that do not know Matt, first, where have you been? Second, he is a very passionate, diehard LA Kings fan. He has received his share of grief over the years (some of it deserved) but each time I have met him, he has been friendly, fun and knowledgeable about the team and the sport.

When I know more, you will know more. GO KINGS!

  1. I really how this rumor turns out to not be true. If those are the offers then I really have no idea why he hasn’t signed yet. That makes him highest paid on the kings and…pretty much overpaid. That puts him .5 million away from weber on the shorter deal. I just can’t imagine why that wouldn’t be signed now unless he really really wants a NMC and it wasn’t offered up.

  2. According to @kingsofhockey, Drew Doughty has signed a unofficial 7 year contract to remain with the Kings.

    LOL! Gotta love twitter.

  3. Watching that all unfold was awesome.

  4. What a coincidence. Just a couple nights ago I had a pleasant rendezvous with a debutante from the Lost Kingdom of L.RonMotherHubbardoftheDuckDuckGoosewithaJuicyCaboose. She didn’t speak a word of English, but while she was in the throes of one of her countless, gracefully-abandoned orgasms, she burst out into a violently rhythmic chant, as if she were possessed by a the gods: “Seven… Years… for Doughty… Oh! Seven… Years… for Doughty… Oh!…” and so on, for many minutes. I didn’t believe it then, but now that it’s confirmed in print, I mean, hey, who would ever doubt it. Right?
