No, Datsyuk is not out of Doughty's reach. Doughty is still in front of him. In fact, if Stoll not where he is, Doughty likely wouldn't even have played the puck at all, instead playing Datsyuk like what was supposed to happen on that coverage situation.
Heck, if Doughty ties up Datsyuk, Stoll can come down in support to try and fish for a loose puck, while still staying between Datsyuk and the player he should be covering.
