I fail to see how that's relevant, I didn't say Luc would have drafted Doughty, I said Lombardi would have.

Everybody knew Stamkos was talented, Lombardi knew Stamkos was talented, 30 General managers knew Stamkos was talented. But Lombardi wanted a franchise defensemen, not a franchise center. He viewed them as close enough in skill that he would have been quite comfortable passing on Stamkos.
