CKAC: Downey Might Retire

Per CKAC right now.

Aaron Downey was given his release from the hospital today, but there's no good news to report. Downey has an history of concussions and the one Robyn Regehr gave him was very severe. It might also be his last.

Sad.

Well there's nothing certain though. They're basing themselves with his history but we keep saying that for Lindros and he's still playing....

Damn it, this is terrible news... I hate to lose a guy like Downey, maybe he can stay with the team in some capacity... I sure hope so.


Edit: And if this wasn't confirmed then change the damn title, that's about as bad as you can mislead someone!

I think it's Villeneuve's speculation, as opposed to based on any fact.

It is 'cause he said the exact same words on 110% yesterday.....But he could be not too far from the truth though....But there's nothing official yet....

Well I sure hope so... I also don't know if coming back and risking your life is a better idea, I know Downey will make the right choice though.

Just saying 'CKAC: Downey To Retire' is quite misleading, it seems very final and factual for those of us who weren't listening, gave me quite a scare.

Although it's not confirmed, as soon as I saw how woozy he was when he got up I thought to myself it's the last time we'd see him in a Habs jersey or any NHL one period.

If so, it sucks...i'm not Downey's biggest fan as a hockey player, but I recognize what he can bring to the team in terms of chemistry.

Seeing as though he's had numerous concussion problems in the past, and given his role on this team and what he does on the ice, i'd advise him to retire (not that i'm an expert or anything). You gotta know when to hang em' up.

Well, it's obviously way too early for anybody to be doing anything but speculating so far, but the speculation is obviously based on serious potential. Let's hope Downey is ok. Meanwhile, I guess somebody in Hamilton just got a second chance. As did Garth Murray.

Until a major news service (TSN, Sportsnet, etc) picks it up, I'm not going to worry about it. I'm sure McKenzie's working on a piece about that hit, and concussions, as we speak.

I'd like to see Lapierre recalled, so Bégin could move back to center...we could have a 4th line of.

Bégin-Lapierre/Murray-Latendresse

Bégin is so much more effective on the wing.

This is bad, Murray can fight but he is not there TO fight. Nothing is confirmed yet. I hope he's fine

I edited the title since it was declaring him as retiring when it's unknown if he will or not.

I hope Lapierre gets the call, his speed and intensity would be great to go along with Begin imo. I like him in Hamilton, to work on his offensive game (he's had some PP time this year) But I also want to see him work with Begin.

Horrible news if it's true. He worked so hard to get into shape this season. Great guy to have on the 4th line.
