I mean, seriously…
how could you not give this man 4.17 million dollars a year for 6 years?


Ok, so not everyone is happy with this deal.


Slava Voynov has long been a fan favorite here at The Royal Half. And that means we've done lots of photoshops with him.

And we've watched him celebrate his day with the Stanley Cup.


And now, we get to see him patrolling the Los Angeles Kings blueline for the next 7 years.

No big deal.

I know that at times it can be a very meaningless stat… but out of Slava Voynov's 12 goals in 2013… 6 were game-winners.

Now he can afford chicken!

So Slava Voynov and Drew Doughty will be anchoring the Los Angeles Kings blueline until 2019…

…and then they'll be free agents in the same year?!?

Actually, I'm not worried at all about this at all because there will
be a lockout before 2018 and the LA Kings will be able to amnesty buy them both out.


Finally, a Russian King that actually achieved something!

Go buy your Slava Voynov TRH T-shirts now… before the Russian Mafia breaks my legs for selling them!
