Doughty and Johnson



Doughty is considered to be a franchise defensemen, as is Johnson. My point is, do you guys think that the contract that Doughty ended up receiving will raise the bar for Johnson's next contract?

Both Drew Doughty and Shea Weber have cap hits over seven million a year. Both are better players than Johnson, but the potential is there. The arbitrator in the Weber case raised the bar on a one year contract but the Doughty deal brings about a change in long term cap hits. His average salary of seven million per year ups the ante from the deal that Tyler Myers received of 5.5 million per year.

Erik Johnson - Current deal - 1 year 2.6 million

Career Stats - GP (227) / G (23) / A (78) / P (101) / +- (-22) / PIM (163) / PPG (13) / SHG (1) / GWG (7) / S (455)           S%  (5.1)

Drew Doughty - Current deal - 8 years 7 million cap hit

Career Stats - GP (241) / G (33) / A (94) / P (127) / +- (16) / PIM (180) / PPG (17) / SHG (0) / GWG (9) / S (411)  S% (8)

Shea Weber - Current deal - 1 year 7.5 million cap hit

Career Stats - GP (404) / G (80) / A (136) / P (216) / +- (24) / PIM (323) / PPG (36) / SHG (2) / GWG (15) / S (1084)

S% (7.4) 

Tyler Myers - Current deal - 7 years 5.5 million cap hit

Career Stats - GP (164) / G (21) / A (64) / P (85) / +- (14) / PIM (72) / PPG (6) / SHG (0) / GWG (6) / S (227)

S% (9.3)

 

What deal do you guys think is the closest to what Johnson will look for?
