I know it's been a while since we've been in this position but we are.
Doughty is the real deal, you just have to watch him play to see how smart a player he is. I'd take hockey intelligence over brawn every time especially when this guy is projected to be a top 5 dman in this league. Doughty wont take 4 years to develop, he can arguably step in immediately onto most NHL teams.

Im not saying O'Byrne will be as good as Komi in his role but i do think that he can play a similar role on the team in the near future.
