His on ice shooting % was a laughably low 5.22% aswell which really hurt his point total

They need to give him tougher assignments since he will almost certainly come out of them ahead and we may already have the guy who can partner Doughty for the next decade
I've never thought about this, but whoever Doughty has played with (Scuderi, Mitchell, Johnson [LOL]) have basically been a detriment to his offensive game. Maybe Doughty + Martinez would help him get to that level we've been waiting for. It's something worth trying I think.

Although I am not considering handedness.
