Could be something like Schenn figures he`s worth about half of what Doughty is, or wants to wait and get an idea of what the ideal term for an RFA defensmen from his draft class is. I mean, you can`t match what Doughty makes dollar wise, but if Doughty gets 3 years, it sets a precedent for what Schenn would want.
I agree though. Personally I figured that it would be Doughty waiting for Schenn and Bogosian to set the lower limit, while using Chara and Weber for the upper limit, and just fall somewhere in between.]]>
