Your a flames fan so you'll see on Saturday how good Doughty is. It's astonishing really that an 18 year old kid can be so good defensively and offensively. From what I have seen (all 8 Kings games and 4 Leafs games), Schenn & Doughty have been equal defensively but Doughty's play with the puck has been vastly superior to Schenn.

Am I the only one that usually takes in great consideration the +/- of a player when trying to compare with other players in similar groups?

Nope. And Doughty's +7 is miles above Schenn's -3, on a team with a worse defensive core, worse goaltending, and currently less points in the standings.

Having seen both Doughty and Schenn against the Red Wings, Doughty looks a few steps ahead of Schenn, IMO.
