We all have high expectations from the youngest players on the team, and seeing how they are the best and most talented players on the roster, it is expected. I don't think Doughty suddenly forgot how to play hockey and lost his abilities. The claims of him being overweight is wild speculation thus far. I would think there may be some lingering effects that he has still yet to overcome from the concussion.

It happens to every player returning from a concussion. Just look at some examples: Simon Gagne, Marc Savard, Jason Pominville, David Booth, etc. When they returned, they weren't exactly producing like they were prior to their concussions. It might take him longer to truly recover 100%, and any head/neurological related injuries is something you don't want to mess with (as we found out first hand with Deadmarsh and Allison).
