yeah no kidding. If he misses time (I can't see how he doesn't have a mild concussion) I guess we'll be seeing how Kostitsyn will fare in the NHL. (or Grabo?)

Habitant#1 10-17-2006 09:23 PM

If he's in the hospital for a while we should each send him a potato!

Metallian* 10-17-2006 09:24 PM

means nothing. every player who recieves a concussion goes to the hospital for precautionary measuers.

Clumsyhab 10-17-2006 09:30 PM

Severe concussion for Downey according to Carbs postgame interview.

Sounds like some people were paying attention to this!

znk 10-17-2006 09:30 PM

I think the fact that the story was up on tsn between the 1st and 2nd period would indicate that he was seriously concussed, so it probably means we wont be seeing him in a habs jersey for a while.

Artyukhin* 10-17-2006 09:37 PM

i honestly think downey is gone for the season .

you dont take a hit like that and come back next week or month .
monster hit just to bad it turned out the way it did for downey but thats hockey .

TroyM 10-17-2006 09:44 PM

He was in another world after that hit, nothing showing on his face, he was just gone. Totally gone. Sucks to see a heart and soul CH-wearing warrior go down so early, I really hope it's not as bad as it seems, and that he can make it back before long. Hell, maybe even hoping for a season return is optimistic :cry:

Get well soon Downey, always a place on this team for a player like him!

hototogisu 10-17-2006 09:48 PM

Guess that's karma for Lats' hit on DiMaio, maybe now those Bolts fans can shaddap.

I hope it's a speedy recovery for Downey though...guy's a warrior :yo:

Teufelsdreck 10-17-2006 09:49 PM

Since Downey won't return for awhile, and Murray was the only spare forward, a call-up is necessary. I'd say it'll be either Lapierre or Ferland. I can't see Kostitsyn sitting in the press gallery or playing on a fourth line with Latendresse and Bégin.

madbox 10-17-2006 09:50 PM

That hurt to watch. Poor guy. :( Speedy recovery, potatoes.

deandebean 10-17-2006 09:50 PM

I thought the league would clamp down on hits at the head?!? Wasn't that what was said before the season???

mtl_felix 10-17-2006 09:55 PM

Awww, Hope our warrior gets better soon!

Breenger 10-17-2006 10:00 PM

Anyone have a video of the hit?

Lady Rhian 10-17-2006 10:06 PM

I wish Downey a speedy recovery. I saw the hit and thought myself the shoulder was a bit too high.

Quiet Robert 10-17-2006 10:12 PM

Man, I really hope he's okay. :(

Tough break for him. Get well soon Downey.

Agreed. Everbody was wondering, "was it interference?" "Was it boarding?" ; I just thought it was a clear blow to the head and therefore deserving of a penalty, no ? :dunno:

Supposedly, he has a concussion history; now add a "pretty bad concussion" on top of that ? Can't like the sound of that... I think he's done, for good. Get well soon, potato man !!

Dan K 10-17-2006 10:29 PM

All the best to potatoes!

Wishing for a speedy recovery. I guy who loves being here and would do anything for his teammates. A class act. Take care kiddo!
