yeah no kidding. If he misses time (I can't see how he doesn't have a mild concussion) I guess we'll be seeing how Kostitsyn will fare in the NHL. (or Grabo?)

If he's in the hospital for a while we should each send him a potato!

I think the fact that the story was up on tsn between the 1st and 2nd period would indicate that he was seriously concussed, so it probably means we wont be seeing him in a habs jersey for a while.

He was in another world after that hit, nothing showing on his face, he was just gone. Totally gone. Sucks to see a heart and soul CH-wearing warrior go down so early, I really hope it's not as bad as it seems, and that he can make it back before long. Hell, maybe even hoping for a season return is optimistic

Get well soon Downey, always a place on this team for a player like him!

Guess that's karma for Lats' hit on DiMaio, maybe now those Bolts fans can shaddap.

I hope it's a speedy recovery for Downey though...guy's a warrior

Since Downey won't return for awhile, and Murray was the only spare forward, a call-up is necessary. I'd say it'll be either Lapierre or Ferland. I can't see Kostitsyn sitting in the press gallery or playing on a fourth line with Latendresse and Bégin.

I wish Downey a speedy recovery. I saw the hit and thought myself the shoulder was a bit too high.

Agreed. Everbody was wondering, "was it interference?" "Was it boarding?" ; I just thought it was a clear blow to the head and therefore deserving of a penalty, no ?

Supposedly, he has a concussion history; now add a "pretty bad concussion" on top of that ? Can't like the sound of that... I think he's done, for good. Get well soon, potato man !!
