Weber now, Doughty later?

This is, potentially, a notable day for followers of the Drew Doughty contract situation. Nashville defenseman Shea Weber is having his arbitration hearing today, and while the age, experience and statistics aren’t completely comparable, it’s clear that the Kings cand Doughty’s representatives will be keeping a close eye on Weber’s eventual salary number.

Weber, who turns 26 next week, totaled 16 goals and 32 assists last season. How do you think he should compare to Doughty?
