Daily Drew Doughty Dose

Drew spoke “recently” (writer does not state when) with thegoodpoint.com…who? Exactly.

For those who don’t like links, here are Drew’s quotes:

“Some people were on me for my point production, but I feel like I improved in areas people didn’t really notice last year,”

“The Kings haven’t made it past the first-round in how long? Since the current management and coaches came on board, they’ve been bringing in new faces,” he said. “They’ve done a great job building.”

“I always aim to be the best, most consistent player on the ice.”

“I was in good shape last year but I worked out really hard this summer so I can make a bigger difference out there.”

“It’s always bittersweet with the summer ending,” he said. “I look forward to getting back on the ice, so I get really excited, but at the same time I don’t want it to end.”

Is there cause for concern because he referred to the team by name or used the word “they’ve” instead of “we” or “us”? I don’t think so. In fairness to Drew, he is talking about past L.A. Kings teams, not the present one and, as a 21-year-old kid, I doubt seriously Doughty pays that much attention to every word he uses. I remember being 21. I said a lot of dumb things. Surly still does.

A thank you to one of our readers, James, for sending me the article.

  1. I think when he was saying “they” he meant “the current management and coaches” and not the entire team. I don’t think he was excluding himself as part of the team.
    As far as “the Kings” part I think he meant to include the years he was not part of the team.
    Lawyers always looking to redefine what “is” is.

  2. Hahahahaah to the surley comment

  3. Is there cause for concern because he referred to the team by name or used the word “they’ve” instead of “we” or “us”?

    … Absolutely not. He’s 100% correct. He wasn’t on board for 7 of the 10 years it’s now been since the Kings ventured past the first round, and of course he hasn’t been responsible for the players that have been brought in here.

    And I think he’s also dead-on with “Some people were on me for my point production, but I feel like I improved in areas people didn’t really notice last year.” For all the times I hear people say “you can’t judge players with stats”, so many of the same people will say that he took this massive step back last season, and they base that comment on the basic stats. If they took the time to look at a few other numbers here and there, they would see the improvement that was made to Doughty’s defensive game.
