Drew Doughty looked great in the Canada/Russia game today. I loved it when he completely took out Alexander Ovechkin as Ovie was streaking into the Canadian zone. This was similar to when the Washington Capitals came into Staples Center and Doughty stepped up to AO like it was nothing. It was sick for those who don't remember.
So what do we think? Does Doughty deserve to be at the Olympics? Damn straight. With all the talk that everyone on the Canadian roster is the captain of his respective team, I have a feeling those talkers have overlooked Doughtnuts. That being said, I'm positive he'll wear at least the "A" soon enough. The "C"? Perhaps? I love Dustin Brown as the captain and I don't see Brownie losing his captaincy anytime in the near future. Conclusion? Drew Doughty will have a great future regardless of whether he wears the "A" (or "C") in his career.
The game, by the way, was a killing spree by the Canadians. Evgeni Nabokov had his mind elsewhere and let in the worst goals I've seen in these Games yet. Granted I haven't watched every single game, but man! Ilya Bryzgalov should have been switched in after the third goal against the Russians.
Also, Rick Nash is beast.
