Only concern is Downie's injury history.
Only concern is Downies undisciplined play.

I like the trade value wise and Raffl has no business playing in the top-6 as of now but I'm scared of having Downie, Rinaldo and Rosehill dressed in the same game because it's only natural that there will be more penalties.

Downie's skill and willingness to compete were never an issue but he could go complete ape **** crazy out there. I haven't watched him much in recent years though.
