In Response to Re: Myers At 5.5m-How Much For Doughty?:
[QUOTE]Frankly, both sides look a bit silly, if all this was over $200,000/yr. It's a lot of money to us, but it's 2.9% above the $6.8m that was the apparent "ceiling" set by the Kings (and, I assume, the Kings previous offer). As I said before, at this level of pay, it's all about "ego" vs. "drawing lines in the sand". That extra 2.9% in his bank account (especially after the IRS gets through with it) will not enhance Doughty's life to any noticeable extent. On a completely separate note, I'm stoked about attending the first game tonight in the refurbished BC Place Stadium. I can't wait to see what $563m worth of renovations looks like.
