I love Downey even if he's not a good fighter. He has tremendous team spirit and is a big reason why the team chemistry is so high right now.

Goons are not a factor in todays NHL. Downey is just fine.

His TOI was 1:37 for the game, I'd call that making the most of your opportunities

Huh? Goons lose fights sometimes, it's okay. And Downey has the heart of a lion and the CH is tattooed on it. He's a great guy.

And i'd love to see you fight Brashear.

Downey hasn't won a fight since Boulerice. He is a good team guy, but there's a reason he's been on 4 teams.

He's a terrible fighter.

The guy did get pounded.

But he works super hard and will stick up for his teamates, what more can we ask of him?

He is not a regular in the lineup but when he plays he gives 110% and would rather have him out there then Garth on most nights.

I like Downey and everything but still was that the right time for him to fight?We are up 2 -0 and he decides to fight Brashear when he probably knows he is gonna get pounded and maybe spark the Caps?I don't know if Carbo was happy about that.Downey needs to fight when we need a lift not when were up on the scoreboard

Downey always goes with that Boulerice one-punch move...if that doesn't work he's in trouble.

But he's a good teamate to have around, especially as the 13th forward.

What language is this exactly? Drunkease?

Downey is great worth having him around, he is willing to drop the gloves and is amazing in the room and his interviews have got to be some of the best.

He's a terrible fighter.
He beat up big-bad Chris Neil earlier this season and handed Jason "Gator" Smith his *** in the Edmonton game. He got clobbered in this fight, but that's all because he made one mistake at the start and couldn't recover.

Not the greatest fighter, but his heart and his leadership abilities more then make up for it; and he can hold his own in the ring.

How many players have the testicular fortitude to step up to Brashear? How about on the Canadiens? 1, 2 players? Downey was just sending a message to the Caps that he won't back down, Brashear or no Brashear.

If that is beating up, then what would you call last night?

Probably none on the Habs, but most other tough guy in the league who would do a better job than Downey did last night. Case in point, Peters in Buffalo.

Poor Downey...As soon as they lined up against each other I knew he was gonna get pummelled. He does have alot of testicular fortitude standing up to that beast Brashear though!! I know we don't have roster room but we should carry a heavy weight, Downey is a middle weight at best...he'll get pummelled by every tough heavy weight and I don't want Komi or Souray fighting!

GO HABS!!!

Donald was out there to bully habs players and turn the momentum around Downey did what he had to do and lost that's a team guy for ya.
