Drew Doughty Wants To Stay With The Los Angeles Kings

from Lisa Dillman of NHL.com,

"I don't want to go anywhere else," Doughty said Tuesday on the eve of training camp.

The comments come four days after Doughty told The Hockey News he would consider playing elsewhere for a chance to win the Stanley Cup again.

"I'd love to re-sign in L.A. But if our team isn't going in the right direction …," Doughty, who won the Stanley Cup with the Kings in 2012 and 2014, told the magazine. "I want to win Cups. I don't give a [darn] where I play. I just want to win Cups, and that's the bottom line."

He tried to clarify those comments Tuesday.

"My one comment, 'I don't care where I play. I just want to win [Stanley] Cups.' That is true. I just want to win Cups," said Doughty, who can become an unrestricted free agent after the 2018-19 season. "When I said that, it didn't mean I didn't want to do it in L.A. The bottom line is all I care about is Cups. I don't want to win a Cup anywhere else but L.A. That's the bottom line."

Thats a competitor.  Fanboys wont agree but I find it refresging to hear players say this.  The chance to play for a sweater is ridiculous.

Glad Drew talks like that.

Bottom line is Blake et al need to turn things around. The anemic offense era is coming to an end.
