Not sure what you are even referring to on Doughty.

Lot's of 2nd rounders from the 2008 draft are in the NHL as we speak. Voynov is good but is still not in the NHL as a regular yet. Clifford has been terrible this year. I hope he turns it around.

And what culture has changed? Losing two home games in a row 3-0 in totally uninspired efforts is a culture change? Please, give me the old culture then!!

Finally, the Kings desperately need scoring. Who can provide that in Manchester? MAYBE Loktionov. Other than that, NO ONE. That is the depth you are so proud of?
Gleason is what he is and Johnson is getting better every year. I think the Kings won that deal. If you haven't noticed the improvement in his defense this season you need to watch more carefully.
