Seen enough of Downie to know what he brings. Detroit definitely got ripped off trading their 1st for him, but that was a late first in a meh draft... and in the end they managed to fix their mistake by acquiring a top-4 dman for him.

But fine, I'll acknowledge that Vasilevsky(that's who Florida got right when all's said and done, right?) could be better than Quincey, if he makes the NHL.

Downie, however, is a negative impact on a team.


And don't think I'm just trolling here, I really really like Colorado. I think you guys have a hell of a team going forward... Lots of smart drafting, definitely gonna pay off.

There is just no way in hell anyone will convince me Downie brings more positives than negatives to a team, that a late first has more value than a regular contributor, or that O'Rielly is a better player than Kessel.
