Good point about Muzzin getting the chances because he's playing with doughty, that's one of the reasons i always hated Doughty playing with Scuderi, is that scuderi would be sooo wide open and would do absolutely nothing with the puck besides scale it down the boards, even if he was wide open to take a shot.

but with as much PP time doughty's getting, and all the chances that he IS creating for himself, for him to have ZERO goals tells me that he is snakebit. I think even he himself would admit that he's gripping the stick.

and with regards with him being the shutdown guy, i would slightly disagree, i do think he's taken the role more seriously, however when DD44 is in the line-up, if you look at the last 5 games he's been in, Doughty is 3rd on the team with PK minutes, Scuderi averaging about 3, Drewiske about 2:30 and Doughty about 1:30.
Sutter views our "7th Defenseman" as more of a shutdown guy than the guy we're paying over 6 million.

I also could be a tad bitter because i drafted doughty in all of my fantasy leagues, and he's done nothing for me.
