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.
Lets wait and see - you seem awfully certain that Doughty will not crack the top ten many projections have him in AFTER FIVE GAMES of not producing.
I am sure of nothing - I make no claim to having a crystal ball, but Edler is likely to have some injury issues, Byfuglien is hot and cold, Chara and Keith are off to good starts but are IMO better actual d-men than fantasy, and MDZ is no stranger to long droughts as well.
Lets see how things play out - in the meantime, lets not lose faith in Dobbers #4 ranked fantasy keeper d-man based on a slow start!
