I don't mind Keith being ranked ahead of Weber. Keith has his Norris and his Cup. He has been in the league for more than just two seasons, and he has shown steady progress in his game since his rookie year.

Drew Doughty is a good player, and I don't doubt he'll have a successful career. He's also only played two seasons, and his stats have only been really impressive in one of those seasons. Even then Weber has had comparable stats in a single season while playing, as far as I'm concerned, a better defensive game.

Before anyone thinks I'm bitter, I honestly couldn't care less about a TSN ranking. Having a Predator on their top 50 is surprising enough, let alone in their top 20. I just think that if people are so confident in Drew Doughty's ability to be a great defenseman, and I'm one of those people, then they should be able to wait until he's proven it over the course of more than just a season or two. I guess patience is only a virtue outside of sports fans.
