...and then we'd have one elite two-way center.

Scuderi-Doughty/Mitchell-Voynov is leagues better defensively than our top four, and yes, I'd qualify Scuderi and Mitchell as top defensive defensemen in the league. Doughty isn't as good at raw goal prevention, but he's no slouch in his own zone either, and everything else he brings to the table, which is a ton, he can do against the opposition's best players.

Really, the 2012 Kings were lightyears ahead of where this team is.
