Thread title should be: Mitchell tears down Doughty - why now?
I don't think so. Jack Johnson is a very talented young defenseman still learning the game. Mitchell is welcome to his own opinion. The consensus opinion is probably going to be with Doughty, but let's not forget, Johnson was another questionable youngster added to the Olympic squad as well. He has a very high ceiling, and we were ranting and raving like he was Doughty back when we got him. Doughty had some quirks last season and last season is all Mitchell knows of Doughty first hand. Johnson had a terrific year offensively and is still learning the defensive aspects of the game. Sounds like Mitchell is having a good influence there. It is not far-fetched to see why Mitchell would have some tendencies to Johnson. There is no conspiracy.
