Kings, Doughty remain at odds, no accord is near, no agreement "in principle or [in] any form"

 

Kings don't have a deal with Drew Doughty - latimes.com
[...] Drew Doughty and the Kings remain at odds on a new contract a month before training camp starts, but they were in sync Wednesday in denying reports of an agreement existing in principle or any form. "No, not at all. That's certainly not accurate," Doughty's agent, Don Meehan, said of reports attributed to unnamed sources on hockeybuzz.com and other websites. "We don't have a deal." Kings General Manager Dean Lombardi [...] indicated no accord was near with Doughty [...]. Jack Ferreira, a special assistant to Lombardi, recently [...] informed Lombardi that Doughty's representatives "don't want to make a deal … I would not be surprised if he was a holdout." Meehan said that comment was "frustrating and disappointing to Drew" [...]. The Kings' initial offer to Doughty in late June was for nine years at an annual average of approximately $6.5 million. Doughty is believed to prefer five to seven years. For those seeking precedents, Meehan also represents Ducks winger Bobby Ryan [...] signed three days before camp began [...]. Meehan also represented goaltender Evgeni Nabokov in a 2002 dispute and holdout with the San Jose Sharks, whose general manager was Lombardi.
