What a load of nonsense. Although having the Flyers' press going after Downie is better than them writing **** about Giroux, so maybe that's why Downie was brought in.
Hmm, the "distraction trade". I like your angle, Ms Charlie. It's almost a litmus test for Who Understands Hockey and the Flyers? Those who are stuck on "Downie is a goon who got a 20-game suspension in his first preseason" fail the test. However, the other extreme -- "Downie is exactly the power forward and grit this team needs. Problem solved!" are also off base. He's a step in the right direction, but more needs to be done by all of the front office, the coach and (especially) the players.
