had no idea there was anything between briere and downie. I vaguely remember coburn and downie fighting two years or so ago and being at each other's throats for basically every game thereafter. I thought one of our broadcast guys said something about a beef between the two but I could be wrong
Not many people did....and still don't
I actually don't remember the whole Coburn and Downie fight for some reason...
Blown away by this trade like everyone. These are my two favorite teams funnily enough. Don't like it for the Avs even though I understand the flimsy reasoning on their end and terrific move for the Flyers.
There's no way in hell Downie is going to turn things around, but we were in dire need of another capable scorer in the top nine so it works.
Just need to re-acquire Carcillo now to have a Carcillo-Downie-Rinaldo line. Just have to force Downie into a center. Now that would make a season worth watching.
