Sure Doherty has upside but I don't see his upside being any better then D'Amour and for me I think D'Amour's game is way ahead of Doherty's.
Doherty's talent level is equivalent to Colaiacovo's, D'Amour's (one of my favourite prospects) is not.
A top defenseman (D'Amour)? I doubt it, but he has potential to be a similar type of defenseman to Andy Sutton, a good #3/4 guy.
