They ridiculised him on SportsNet too. Personaly I like him and hope he stays. It was great to see him tell it like it is with all the journalists surrounding him. He talked about this group of Habs having good team spirit(the best he`s seen) and so forth. He was pretty funny in a honest Boom Boom kind-of way. Great guy.
I just saw an interview with him....He so wants to be back...I feel for him. But I dont think there will be place for him if we get a real enforcer.
I find it funny that he was the only guy at the Bell Centre yesterday. Did he make a strategic move in order to have all the journalists to himself in order to give the message that he really wants to stay???
If so, just for that, he deserves to stay as a 13th man... I see him a lot alternate with Ferland or Murray, cause even though we liked Murray a lot and think Ferland could make it, we have no idea of the effect a whole 82 season will have on them and Downey could be a good backup.
But if he's that loved in the dressing room, and he's a great team guy, not being a cancer when he's not playing, how can you not want him back.
Go Aaron! (or Craig Downey like we saw on RDS last night....)
