grandmaster Posted January 30, 2020 Share Posted January 30, 2020 (edited) Benefit for LA: The Kings are in a rebuild phase and by the time they get to be competitive again, Doughty will be on a decline. Doughty has already publicly voiced his displeasure of having two bad seasons. Marner is young enough to still be a force once LA gets better in 2 or 3 years. Benefit for Toronto: The Leafs are built to win now and have enough offence left for be very good in this end. Their biggest weakness is defence and Doughty would fit the need the best. Salary Cap Implications: None. Both are virtually even salaries. Contract clause issues: Marner - does not have a NMC or NTC Doughty - has a NTC but would easily waive it to go back home and play for a competitive team Edited January 30, 2020 by grandmaster 1 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
