Drew Doughty sees a significant downside in playing for the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Doughty grew up in London, Ontario and he only has two seasons left on his contract with Los Angeles, so naturally there's some Leafs fans that hope he might end up with Toronto in a couple years time. Don't expect that to happen though. "I think all of us Southern Ontario players, we secretly want to play for the Leafs," Dought said. But he added, "But I think it just always comes down to how hard it is to live in a city being that big of a celebrity. I’m spoiled in L.A., where I walk around anywhere I want and not one person’s going to recognize me. If, say, I did for some reason play for the Leafs, I don’t know if I could get used to that or not. I think that’s the problem, why guys don’t sign here."

The blueliner now has 23 assists and 31 points in 52 games.
