In the full-body trauma that is the Flyers this season, Talbot and Hall are broken legs to the sucking chest wound that is Giroux / Voracek / B. Schenn / Read / Simmonds / Hartnell / Couturier losing their collective ability to score goals. Getting Downie for Talbot was an excellent hockey trade because of Downie's versatility, including better puck-handling and scoring touch. Downie just interrupted his benefit to the team by trying to fight outside his weight class in defense of a teammate.
