Drew has a chip on his shoulder this year and that is good to see.

You can tell Drew cares that he isn't playing up to his potential. By the way, plus/minus as I have said before can be taken as just a ridiculous stat that people use to defend/attack players on HF.. But he IS a +6. Doughty really ISN'T playing bad in his own zone and as long as that continues his offensive game WILL come around.
That +6 simply means he is on the ice for a lot of goals. Obviously by his point total he doesn't have a big hand in those.
