What to do with Doughty?
I don't know what to do with this guy...he is really starting to burn my ass!
I hesitated on a deal earlier in the season to trade him straight up for Weber...when I re-visited this deal, the other GM didn't want the deal. I acquired him last year for Shattenkirk (looking bad now). I just never thought that he would continue to be this bad.
He has the talent to consistently put up 55 points, but I don't know what's wrong. I know some of it has to do with his defense partner (Scuderi), the style LA plays, and the fact that Sutter is putting him out there in shut-down situations.
I guess what I am wondering is will he approach that 55-60 point range again? Will he do it consistently? If not, what kind of return could I get for him?
Team & scoring in signature.
as doughty owners all we can do is cross our fingers.
The emergence of Voynov has alot to do with this.
As a Voynov owner, I am OK with this. :)
Build a time machine, go back to 3 years ago and sell high after his monstrous season.
Do the same with Mike Green.
That's about all I got with these two
Hang onto him, as I doubt you get a return worth while for him. Doughty while disappointing, is still better to have around then a guy like Corvo, and probably the whole lot of free agents. I still believe that Doughty can put up solid point totals, I still have faith in him.
That's where I stand on this guy.

I predict you that you'll keep Streit as your 2nd D.
He's UFA this summer. Wait and see where he signs.
I bet you will want to keep him.
I'm also a Doughty owner. I wish I kept Subban in his place... :-(
Doughty has 0 value right now.
I'm looking for a 6th keeper...
The name still holds value in my league,,,traded him and a 2nd for Eberle and a 4th last week! While I would<t be surprise his production picks up, I am doubtfull it will get back to where it was, He is now palying a more defensive role.
I've also been disappointed with Doughty, but I think everyone should also remember that he's only 24 years old. Maybe he is playing a more defensive role for LA right now, but kids also have their ups and downs.
Most D-men don't even get to begin their NHL career until they're Doughty's current age -- he's already been a Norris finalist, the best defenseman on an Olympic Gold medal winning Team Canada, and an absolute beast (including from a fantasy perspective) throughout a successful run to winning the Stanley Cup. I'd not want to sell his potential right now based on the impression that he's permanently settled in as a 35 point D-man.
Voynov 2 more pts tonight so far. Dump Doughty before everyone knows the reality.
