Doughty by far out of any player on the King's should be the person your least concerned about. Let him play and in a few years he will be a top 5 defenseman in the NHL. Now if you want to be concerned think Sniper we have none. Also TM neutral zone trap is going to keep us in games but were going to have alot of 2-1 games.
That's the point really. Johnson doesn't get cut near the slack that Doughty in this regard, and it's silly. Jack Johnson DID NOT suck last year, and he was game in and game out one of our best defensemen, and yet there are still people who want to trade him because he didn't score 20 goals last year.

As I've said for years the Kings don't deserve a Cup because their fans are too big of idiots to learn from the past, be patient and let these kids develop before we trade them the first time that they don't live up to expectation.

Hell if it were up to some Kings fans, Brown would have been traded two years ago. But hey, such is the wisdom of Kings fans. Oh, well.
