If you watched last years WJC, you can't possibly believe Schenn is a better player than Doughty.
I never said Schenn was a better player than Doughty, ever.

I said he was ready for the NHL more than the other 3 d-men. And that's not my opinion, TSN was saying that during the draft when he got drafted.

Does that mean he's the best of all 4? Definitely not.
Then why is he classified as the most NHL-ready? Most likely because of his size and the fact he's physical and big. Keep in mind this guy's only 18 and he's already hit the 220 lbs mark. Doughty is big too, I realize that, but Schenn is about 3 inches taller.

Honestly? I don't know why he's the most NHL-ready. TSN was talking about and they had probably said why he is, but I may have forgotten it or something.
