Moreover, Downie had no business with that fight....shows you how being a loose canon can come back to bite you. One thing for sure..Talbot was not stupid like that. Probably why Roy made the trade...didn't feel like dealing with the hassle of trying to rein him in like Tocchet said is occasionally needed.
The Downie fight was the only ounce of care I saw in the team all night. Volpatti slew-footed Read into the boards. It's unfortunate Downie took a beating, but he responded the right way.
