Kings Make Major Offer To Doughty

from Rich Hammond of LA Kings Insider,

• Within the past few days, the Kings have made a “major” offer to Drew Doughty’s agent. Lombardi has made two trips to Toronto — location of the office of Don Meehan’s, Doughty’s agent — within the past four weeks, and the Kings would like to get a deal done before the draft, if possible. Lombardi said he is certainly aware of the risk of an offer sheet to Doughty but is not overly concerned.

• The Kings are still in the market for a top-level forward, either through free agency or trade. Lombardi said that even if it was guaranteed that Dustin Penner would have a big season, statistically, the Kings would still seek outside help to improve their scoring numbers, both 5-and-5 and on the power play.

Yeah hope it’s worth your next 3 first rounders too.

I’d give up my next 10 1st rounders for Doughty and it’d be worth it more than likely.

hmm, just throwin’ out a hypothetical…  What would you guys think if We sent our 1st over-all and Huds (possibly Fil but I’d hate to see him go as much as he irritates me) for JJ?  Kid went to Michigan as well…

Drew Doughty did not go to Michigan, I don’t think he played college hockey.  Are you thinking of Jack Johnson? He went to Mich and plays on the Kings as well. and is also really good smile
