Subban is just one promising young player for Canada for the near future. Doughty is the same age and neither player is in their prime.
We'll still get a few Olympics out of Crosby and Weber. A lot could happen in that time. Young players tend to get better over time. Maybe we won't have a new Weber but we'll have a whole new team with a whole new character to it.
Doughty and Weber are gods. Doughty still young and a couple Oly's left in him. But like I stated I don't see a younger Canadian D anywhere that is anywhere close to those 2. Lets keep in mind as well that Doughty has looked like gold since he was draft age. This guy was always going to be a great D and with those signs being very early. Do we have anybody on this scale coming up?
