    Because this team is a dumpster fire and I'm assuming they automatically mess up every trade as is their nature

    They'll trade eichel for Doughty straight up and we'll get another sabres embedded video with terry thinking that this is the move that wins us a cup...

    Drew Doughty actually had a pretty nice bounce-back year this season; with 8 goals and 26 assists, he outscored your best defenseman (Dahlin) and your next two best defensemen (Ristolainen and Miller) combined, and defensively was better than all three. Now you can argue that his contract isn't anything you'd like to get near, even with serious retention (and I'd agree with you), but that's another matter.

    LA has so much cap space, we could absorb Eichel's hit with Doughty and Quick (plus Kopitar and Brown) still on the books. I've done the exercise.
