They average the relative +/- of a player's teammates based on how much ice time they had together to get that Quality of Teammates #.
The perception is that Doughty is struggling. Stats-wise, he's not, but it appears that he is because the guys he's on the ice with are struggling significantly more than the guys he was on the ice with last year.
That, and he's pressing too hard as evidenced by the weight-of-the-world-on-his-shoulders errant pass(es) he made last night. That's not the Drew we know. That's Drew 1. caring a LOT and 2. trying to do too much to get the PP working. The PP sucking ass doesn't help.
