Idk i think they look pretty cool. Just like you guys pointed out with the captain c it starts to look a little ridiculous. But besides that I think they aren't so bad.

One of my favorite things about watching ECHL streams is the predatory feeling I get watching teams with low attendance.

edit: Today I'm getting the rare Wednesday triple header. (well, technically one game is from last night)

In related news, many HF posters have no ****ing clue that turning yourself in to police is not an admission of guilt.

Steve Downie traded to Philadelphia for Max Talbot.

That trade looks great for Yzerman, not so much Detroit and now Colorado.

I'm a huge Downie fan but I can't shake the feeling that this is a terrible trade for Colorado...

Edit: Ok, so it boils down to Talbot's worth a 1st round pick (Talbot = Downie = Quincey = 1st round pick (Vasilevskiy))?

Edit2: Philly's collecting former Bolts like crazy. Vinny, Adam Hall, Andrej Meszaros and now Downie (again).

Yeah funny how Downie is back on the Flyers and Carle is back with us. Maybe we'll trade them for each other again down the road.

I'd like to give additional context.

Years ago, Colorado signed Ryan Smyth as a free agent. We still sucked.

So, they traded him to Los Angeles as a salary dump for Kyle Quincey and Tom Preissing. Quincey was mostly meh (as in, even though Colorado's defense sucks, we don't miss him), but we got Downie from you guys and Yzerman made out like a bandit by magically getting a 1st rounder from Detroit. I doubt Detroit would directly trade with the Avalanche...

Anyways, Downie plays with the Avs for three seasons. He's been often injured and actually hasn't played many games with us. Guess how many goals he's scored in an Av uniform? Three.

In 2013 season, a contract year, he scuffles a little bit in the pre-season with a kid named Gabriel Landeskog. His temper has flared during this winning streak where Roy has had to calm him down during a game. In another recent game, he almost injured himself when he punched the board glass with his bare fist over a non-call. Really. I guess that's not a surprise to you guys.

We've had him on the top line with Ryan O'Reilly and Matt Duchene, two very good forwards and well... he was offensively inefficient, whereby Roy was moving him from the top line.

So the new management knows they aren't going to re-sign Downie at the end of the season, talks with Philly to get Talbot because he's defensively responsible, PKers, a good team player, signed for a few years, and a positive veteran presence for the young guns.

While I would've liked to get more for Downie, I can understand the decision to move him. He just wasn't in the Avs long-term plans. His fire can sometimes burn your own.

The list for candidate cities to host the Frozen Four 2015-18 includes Tampa.

http://www.thehockeynews.com/blog/nc...o-to-brooklyn/

All NHL cities incidentally, figuring that the Islanders will be moving to Brooklyn.

Philly loses the game against the Caps and then lose their minds and their cool.

Emery beats up on Holtby. That seemed somewhat unnecessary. Oh well, he gave up 7 goals and lost the game, but he did get to beat the snot out of a kid that didn't want to fight.

Someone might want to remind these guys that they ain't the Broad Street Bullies

FFS Philly

Holmgren says Downie has a concussion from fight. Lecavalier has a facial injury and will miss time.

Emery only let in 4. He was ejected after his fight before he could let in more. Still, 3rd star of the night

Ah well, that's all better then.

I don't even mind the fights, kinda entertaining. It just seems really ****ing stupid though. Now you got two top six forwards out injured, your back up goalie could possibly be suspended (not that it's a great loss mind you) and you accomplished what?

Just when the flyers can't embarrass themselves even more, they find a way to surprise you...

I have some good friends that are flyer fans, and while I never root for the flyers to win, they don't deserve the absurd product they put on the ice tonight.

Hopefully Downie and Vinny are alright after that nonsense.

Would be awesome again but I highly doubt we get it so soon already. Although I know the higher ups were all impressed with the event when it was here recently.

This is the first clear and understandable reasoning for the trade I've seen.

1:13 is where the punch can be seen...you could almost see the fist impression on his face, kinda like getting hit by a baseball, and seeing the seams in the bruise.

Word is he went to the hospital w/a concussion, which isn't doubtful after taking a punch like that. Rough week for Downie...you go from a 1st place team in the West to a bottom team in the East, then to the hospital after a 7-0 loss b/c of a left hook to the face.

Good post. I don't think Roy really gave Downie an environment conducive to, err... non-fighting. I feel as if Roy wanted aggression, and that's when testosterone builds, and Downie is released.

Or maybe I just like to think that Boucher was the only one who could tame him

Yeah, he took a lot of dumb penalties when he played for us, and he got A LOT of reputation calls, but there was that fire, like you said. We've been a team that's usually been beat up by the others, and Downie provided us with fire and grit. That's why we liked him. That being said, I make the trade for, essentially, him for Vasilevski easily.
