Is Doughty Kopitar's Coffey?

Hi everyone.  I was thinking the other day about Drew Doughty and how he could be the next Paul Coffey.  Anze Kopitar is comparable to Wayne Gretzky.  They both score goals and get assists and are key cogs for their teams. Kopitar is that 'once in a lifetime' player that all GM's would DIE to have on their team.  Coffey once scored 50 goals for the Oilers back in the 80s and I believe Doughty could do the same for the Kings very soon.  I am hearing he could sign a deal today which would be a game changer.  20 years and 200 million is what has been floating around my toilet this morning.  If this happens then the NHL will NEVER be the same again.  P3

Shea Weber has told his closest friends that he does not want to be a Nashville Predator for his entire career.  When he becomes a UFA, he will only play for 3 teams.  The Leafs, Rangers and Flyers are the ONLY teams Weber will even consider playing for.  Is Shea Weber David Legwand's Kevin Lowe?  P2

The Winnipeg Jets are very close to making a HUGE trade with a team from the East.  This could be a game changer in a BIG WAY.  Look for Montreal, Toronto or the Isles here.  Tavares?  It could happen.  Garth Snow wants to improve his team and Tavares could give him a pocket full of gold here.  Andrew Ladd is high on Snow's list.  Where there is smoke there is fire.  I can't say anything more than this because all players, agents and GM's trust me with their lives.  IF a trade happens it will be on Saturday because no one ever goes on the internet on the weekends.  P4

The Red Wings are in serious fire sale mode.  I don't see them making the playoffs at all.  Nashville and Chicago have passed them by in the Central and even St. Louis and Columbus are catching up to them.  Look for both Datsyuk and Zetterberg to be dealt by Christmas.  I am hearing that the Pens, Flyers, Rangers, Habs and Sabres are all interested.  Franzen could be a Penguin as soon as this weekend.  Holland really likes Kunitz.  P2

Are the Flyers this year's Bruins?  Are the Sharks this year's Canucks?  Is Paul Maclean this year's Todd McLellan?  What say you?  More to come...P3
