With the exception of Karlsson, Shultz, Letang and Pietrangelo, I can't think of another D-man I would rather have. He is right there with Yandle and OEL. Be patient!
And you are basing this inside knowledge on.......???????
I can easily think of other offensive Dmen I would rather own. Byfuglien? Edler? Enstrom? Chara? Keith? MDZ?
Sounds like hopeful wishing to me. With the names you just listed and the ones I added, you seriously expect Doughty to jump any of these guys in scoring by seasons end? I havent even started naming the guys who are off to an expected hot start.
I agree that this is not the time to sell but you are kidding yourself if you think Doughty will climb into the top 10 for D scoring by seasons end. He wont be close to that. LA just doesnt score enough goals in Sutters system.
