Are the Kings and Oilers about to swing a major blockbuster?

With the NHL season opener fast approaching, Drew Doughty is still without a contract with the LA Kings and it looks like a long holdout is possible. The Kings have reportedly received offer sheets from other clubs, and if the two sides can’t reach an agreement soon, his days as a King will be over.

The latest trade rumor on Bleacher Report has the young defenseman heading to Edmonton in a deal with the Oilers. Edmonton is rumored to have put an offer sheet together and the Kings are mulling over their options.

Edmonton is in rebuilding mode, but has several young talented players. Doughty would play along with Ryan Whitney and the two would make a formidable pairing on the back half of the ice for the Oilers.

Ales Hemsky and possible first round draft picks would go to Los Angeles, which has added several veteran stars this off-season, and the team is looking to start the NHL season without any distractions hanging over the team’s head.

    I would love to see this story end with an offer sheet and I'd be interested in seeing the reaction across the league to it.

    Can't see Edmonton giving up 4 first round picks for a defenseman though.

    Strange to read a rumor that doesn't involve the Maple Laffs.

    I'm just going to take a random guess that Doughty signs with LA 8 years 7m per.
    Just a guess, this will be completed on september 29, which also happens to be my birthday so if I'm right im expecting a few quickies from HTR. 😉

    Happy Birthday brother

    And good guess. I don't think Lombardi will move much on the money, but Doughty might accept a few more years.

  6. Leafs_Wallace says:

    What about all the rumors about your sexuality?

  7. hockey_lover says:

    Guess they heard 93killer and I talking about it.

    Looks like the deal is done.

    birth castration humour…. how cliche.

  12. LeafFansAreGay says:

    How many laffs fans do you need to make M & Ms? Two. One to put them alphabetical order, and one to proofread them. HAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!

  13. LeafFansAreGay says:

    You laffs fans make me laff. First you said Stamkos is going to the laffs, then you said Doughty. Doughty just resigned with the kings. Whos the next superstar going to that crap team?

  14. Leafs_Wallace says:

    I'm happy you have HTR as an outlet for your furstrations in life, it just might save your classmates from being shoot, you unsocialable mongoloid.

  15. 93killer93 says:

    Ya he only signed because he heard it was annoying us. 

  16. TheOnlyIslesFan says:

    I still say LFAG and NLFAG are the same person.

  17. LeafFansAreGay says:

    I'm not him, I'm somebody else.

  18. LeafFansAreGay says:

    Why did the laffs fan get fired from the M & M factory? He kept throwing out the W's. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

  19. reinjosh says:

    Parise then Malkin, than Crosby. 

  20. hockey_lover says:

  21. FlamingHomer says:

    Way to play hardball Lombardi!

    "Hey punk, if you don't sign we'll trade you to Edmonton." I'm sure he couldn't find a pen fast enough.
