Drew Doughty and the Kings remained at an impasse Wednesday, but that can change with one phone call. Sources told ESPN.com that the Kings won't pay Doughty more than the $6.8 million Anze Kopitar makes on average per season. Further, Bob McKenzie of TSN reported late Tuesday night that the Kings won't do a deal for less than seven years.
I wonder what Doughty would take to sign for seven years. There has to be a number.
