Doughty plays a vary mature game. Reminds me of how Markov seems to know when to conserve energy and when to jump in. I was very impressed with his poise (despite the Kings not really showing up). That's what people mean by "not being there yet".

However, I totally agree that it's annoying to hear all the criticism of PK that is based on non-hockey related stuff that's been blown out of proportion. Reminds me of when Ribs, Theo and, to a certain extent, Chelios, Corson, Carbo got traded. Huge mistakes. Hope we're not heading that way.
Well Doughty was a #2 draft pick and he also plays on a much better team...PK Subban is still a little raw but think back to when he was drafted to the player he is today, that's a tremendous amount of growth in 5 years.
