You guys are complaining about Downey as if he plays 82 games a season with 15-20mins a game.

No we're not. We're just discussing the fact that he can't fight. It's not a big deal.

No one care if he can fight, it doesn't give you a goal if he wins the fight, the whole point of the excercice is for him to send Brashear to the box for 5 minutes so he doesn't bully our player anymore during that time.

So what if he lost the fight, the way he lost it, Washington never got any momentum from it.

He's a terrible fighter.

I'm pretty sure he fought chris neil earlier this year and beat him.

yikes, my brain just felt pain reading that.

And a "goon" has its uses in hockey. Downey showed a lot of balls fighting Brash, as he's one of the best fighters in the league. That guy trains like a boxer, and not many have beaten him. Downey probably lifted the habs a lot more than Brash lifted the Caps by taking him on.

GO POTATOMAN DOWNEY!

I like Downey. He's an awesome team guy and works hard everytime he's on the ice and I'm sure he doesnt care if he gets his *** handed to him when he fights since he knows it's for the team and he really loves the situation he's in.

Barsh was after him all game long. Sometimes you have to just MAN UP!

Enough with this tactical bs..lets go back to the glory days when scoring and fighting were where it was at.

I thought someone else on the Habs fought Brashear last year... I didn't have Center Ice then so I didn't see it, but I thought maybe I saw it on YouTube or something... maybe it was the year before the lockout? Or maybe I just don't know what I'm talking about ?

If that is beating up, then what would you call last night?
No matter who won it, that was a great fight, disproving right away your theory that Downey can't fight.
