Downie meltdown just occurred against the Panthers. Got in a brawl with one Panther who towered over him, at the conclusion of that fight he tries to engage Jovo. Dat guy's crazy. Just surprised Bradley didn't leave the bench and go after Downie.
Problem with your presumption is that Ovie doesnt have nearly as much influence on this team's well being as say perhaps the coach?
I do, actually, but where is the influence line then? We've obviously gathered that every coach who doesn't win a Cup within four years will never win one. What about goalies? Four years without a cup equals suck?
Apparently captains and and franchise players are not influential enough.
