Well it is a lot colder in Winnipeg than Atlanta, he probably just wanted a little something to keep him warmer...

per RealKyper and some other french reports

Doughty rejected multi offers including 9 yrs/61.2M. The 6.8 aav would have matched Kopitar's as #Kings highest

mmm i wonder whats up... i mean i cant see why he wouldnt want to stay there, they have a very bright future so im not gonna jump on the "he wants to get out of there" wagon but yeah... i dont know...

Just caught this on Twitter:

RANGER-LOGO.CMYK-2_normal.jpg@thenyrangersNew York Rangers ALERT: the #NYR will announce who their new captain is tomorrow along with their two alternates!! spread the word #NYRcaptain

Anyone care to venture a guess? I would have to say Callahan, with Dubinsky and Gaborik as A's.

"The key for me personally is that I can't let the captaincy change me at all," Callahan said as he was joined by teammates Marc Staal, Brandon Dubinsky, Dan Girardi, Ryan McDonagh and Derek Stepan on a tour through the evolving arena that remains a construction zone. "I can't let it change me on or off the ice, the way I play or the way I act."

Some late night tidbits from Bob McKenzie...

"LAK adamant on 2 things with Doughty: deal needs to be at least 7 years long and cannot be more than $6.8M, same salary as Kopitar."

"Nothing official just yet, but John Tavares and Tyler Myers on verge of big, multi-year contract extensions with NYI and BUF, respectively."

"Both deals are expected to be in 6 year range, give or take a year, and worth an average of $5.5M, give or take a few hundred thousand."

Saw that too, but i guess the kings are really pushing for 7 at least and Doughty is going for 5... i wonder who's gonna bend or what may happen if they can't agree on something

i find it funny, assuming that's true, that LA is basically hoping to browbeat Doughty into signing a 7 year contract. what a strange world NHL negotiations have become.

Marchand signing for 2 years @ 5 million. Too bad, wouldn't have minded seeing the Devs make a play for him.

We could use a guy as cocky as he was, punching the Sedins a repeated number of times. Plus, I was under the belief he was a RW. Nevermind! :ph34r:

Saw this on the old 'HF. I'm 99.9% sure it means nothing - but fun to stir the pot when there's so little going on.

Again - not serious - and not my claim. Just for fun:

--------------------------------------------------

The guy got 3-4 things right this summer...broke a few signings.... does mostly toronto stuff..

very grain of salt though..

*********** Hockey Break

Very interesting here. Source informing me that the Devils have inquired about Drew Doughty, "With a very tempting offer".

We probably have to wait for the final word from Potvin for confirmation..... :giggle:

I caught a similar rumor on Twitter, actually, saying we might have made an offer for Doughty and Jonathan Bernier...
