Doughty Articles re: Team Canada

One of many forthcoming I'm sure:


"I see Doughty playing a big role. Bigger than Dan Boyle, maybe bigger, even, than the seemingly fast-aging Scott Niedermayer, whose game Doughty’s most resembles. The kid has shown maturity beyond his years and a still-evolving game that will only grow more with the cast of Canadian characters he’ll have around him in Vancouver.

Why add the youngster over those left off the roster? Because the kid can flat out play. And in a short tournament, Yzerman et al want the best available players for coach Mike Babcock and his staff. Seniority in the NHL or with Hockey Canada be damned.

Gold is all that matters and if a few feathers have to be ruffled to reach that goal – even if they’re captain Niedermayer’s – so be it."

Good stuff.. He nailed it about not getting calder award because he plays in LA... as stated so many times, if he played for Toronto or Montreal this kid would get sooo much more attention and respect. It's getting there though!
