It's a decent contract for a developing hockey player. Nothing major, but it shows they have the confidence in his possibility for development to keep it on the NHL level. Newsday reported...

Matthew Barry: 7 Million a Year Doughty? For What?

Hey Drew! Thomas Hickey has more goals. Visnovsky holds out most of the season has more goals! You plays defense? Great. There were 75 guys that could play defense for half the price (like Mitchell, Scuderi and Greene). What the hell are the Kings paying 7 million dollars for? -6? You make more than Kopitar. You make more than Carter. You make more than Richards...

Matthew Barry: Rumors

Is the party over yet? Nah. Depending on who you talk to, Kings former #4 pick and RFA (with a 1.3 mil NHL cap hit) Thomas Hickey has asked to be traded. The Kings don't have 2nd or 3rd round picks this year and Lombardi and his staff have made a killing in the 2nd round (Toffoli, Clifford, Voynov, Moller, Simmonds), so look for Hickey to be moved soon for an early...
