OT: Downie suspended 20 games for slashing ref

Sorry - I know this is off topic for this forum, but I really only care about what leaf fans think anyway.


You guys hear about this? WTF was he thinking? I haven't seen a video yet, and my work firewalls youtube. Anyone find a clip of this yet?

If true, dude should be sent to the ECHL. He'd fit in perfectly there.

What an idiot. He should take anger management classes or something because he can play, but doing stupid crap like this is bad for the league and makes me question just how mentally challenged he is.

Man, the worst part of this is that the kid's got skill, but he's never going to amount to anything if he keeps going the way he is.

Kinda off topic, but he used to go to my High School. Same with Curtis Joseph.



But on topic, he has lots of skill, and is very aggressive which leads him to go berserk. If he gets some discipline he could be good in the NHL.

Any video?

I was on his 3 on 3 summer hockey team probably 6-8 years back. He is the only person I have seen fight in a 3 on 3 summer hockey league. It happened more than once.

I like him, but he needs to see anger management.

after seeing the video on sportsnet I really dont think he deserves a 20 game suspension. Apparently he was exchanging words with the opposing centremen and went in with an overly aggresive force that hit the ref, IMO i dont think there was a real intent to hit the ref. On the other hand he does have some anger issues.
