Potato man.

I heard on the radio yesterday somme interesting stuff about downey. And today it's in an article here http://www.cyberpresse.ca/article/20...006/CPSPORTS01

So basicaly they said he was flying on the ice. He lost 15 pounds. He knocked on the door of olympic speed skating champion Bonnie Blair and he spent a few days working on his skating in milwaukee with her husband.
He was at 230 pounds all muscle (too much muscle) but mostly at the top of his body. So he worked at spreading him mucle more evenly and losing some of his top weight. Followed Scott Livingstone's plan to the letter.
He also says his hands are healed so he's ready to drop the gloves. (I guess his hands must have been in bad shape?)

Gota love his dedication and will to do everything necessary to make this team.

Well another positive comment about a habs player....man, I am usually an optimist at this time of year, but I am REALLY, REALLY optimistic this year.

I truely believe the habs will be the surprise team in the East.

He's got the largest hands I've ever seen. They're seriously disproportionnate to the rest of his body. Now that you're healed, it's time to mash some potatoes/faces Aaron!

Would be nice to see Downey & Williams goes into a fight. Not a cheap-shot ala Bertuzzi, no, a real fight. NO WAY Williams would want to ... but that would be quite nice to see Downey smash him.

I would go out the next day and get Downey's face tattoo'd on my chest if that happened.

I really hope people would get over that....it was an accident. You guys realize that Perezhogin ended the career of Primeau? So your saying head hunting is appropriate in that case too?

It seems like all of our players are super pumped about this upcomming season. I guess getting out of that huge slump last season and getting two games on Carolina really bonded them together.

I'm just worried that Koivu seems tired to me. But he's proven me wrong in the past, so here's to Captain K!

Perezhogin' hit was clean.

Apples and Oranges.

And furthermore, he was careless with his stick at more than one occasion.

Yeah. I agree...

I remember Markov getting an high stick from Williams later in this series.

I am not saying to cheap shot him at all... but we should put the guy aware that every times he step on Bell Center ice, he's on a ennemy territory.

Correct.

Saku got high sticked in game 3. during the next 48 hours we heard Williams say it was an accident, Koivu mentioned that they had spoken and he was very sorry for what he did. Fair enough. You never want to see a player as important as Saku suffer more bad luck, but it was an accident, Saku was trying to move on and I could appreciate that.

Game 4. I think Williams high sticked both Markov and Rivet. So Williams just continues saying sorry and not taking responsibility for his own actions. All that heart felt, "I really didn't mean it" means squat if you are gonna go and repeat your careless actions once again.

Add to that, he high sticked someone else in eiher game 5 or 6 which he finally got called for. I hope someone does pay him a little extra attention this year. Nothing cheap or looking to take advantage of him if he is in a position he can't defend himself, but if its clean and someone has the chance, I hope they absolutely bury the guy. If it had just been the Saku incident, I could accept what happened. But he did it again and again and most of the time got away with it. I remember reading posts about the Habs team from a few years ago, how they wouldn't stick up for each other and they would just accept a beating. And here we have a guy who seriously injured our captain, then high sticked at least 3 other guys afterwards, we can't just let it go. Someone at least has to push him around a bit, let him know that he will be responsible for his stick or someone on the Habs will take responsibility for the safety of their teammates. If he does it again this year, he will deserve all he gets. Again, I'm not talking about doing anything cheap, but pay him a little extra attention, watch him closely and if he steps out of line again, say hello. God knows the refs have a tough enough job keeping track of everything as we saw in the playoffs. I'd like to see our players stick up for each other, particularly if a previous offender is responsible. It will just be up to our players to ensure they don't go too far with it.

People dont get my point. I said it would be nice if Downey & Williams goes into a fight (both accept to goes into a fight) so Downey could smash him.

QFT. This reasoning applies in all aspects of life. Have you ever heard of ' criminal negligence' ? No need for the action to be intentional to hold it up against the perpetrator.

No, I meant all these nice things about muscular forwards and logjams and all, all about forawards. What about the D? Sanford? Injuries? Mostly negative.

Komo is looking like a monster and he put on an other 5 pounds of muscle.
Dandenault gained 15 pounds of muscle.
Rivet gained 5 pounds.
