POLL: Doughty’s Partner In Crime?

No doubt, Drew Doughty is still working to regain the form that had him as a Norris Trophy finalist last season. With concussion related problems about a month behind him now, he’s seen his ice time progressively increased over the last five games. However, he hasn’t had a point in eight straight – the longest drought since the middle of his rookie season.

Due mainly to injuries within the d-core, he’s had a few different partners this season. Currently, he’s paired with Rob Scuderi – a defensive-defenseman. However, after the Olympic break last season, Doughty had some success playing with another offense-minded blueliner, Jack Johnson.

Coach Terry Murray says he’s sticking with Scuderi as Doughty’s partner for Thursday’s game vs. Calgary. Of course, this could all change once Willie Mitchell is ready to go in a few games.

Yet, for now, which partner do you think gives the Kings the best chance to win on any given night? Is it Scuderi? Johnson? Or how about Matt Greene? Maybe Alec Martinez?



Poll closes Thursday at noon.
