Kings GM Dean Lombardi doesn't anticipate any hiccups in getting either player locked up to a new contract, and the belief is that the Kings want them signed to long-term contracts.
In January, the Kings locked up defenseman Jack Johnson to a seven-year, $30.5 million contract.
It's believed Doughty will seek a similar annual salary, hovering around the $4.5 million mark, though the desired length of his deal is less clear. One source close to the situation told TFP Doughty could ask for a five-year contract.
Simmonds, meanwhile, could see his salary climb around $2.5 million on a shorter-term contract.
It's believed talks between both sides, for both players, could intensify as early as this week.
