Agreed 100%. This team is missing Downie's physicality and pest qualities. In fact I think he would work really well with either Duchene or Stastny (at least better than Jones at this point). If I remember right Downie was on Duchene's line a couple years ago at the World Championships and looked really good there. Then on top of it, his pure craziness tends to keep the other team's players in check.
