When have Downie and Latendresse ever come into contact with each other? I don't think they've ever played each other, considering they came up in two different leagues and their teams didn't meet in the Memorial Cup.

Does anyone know if this Kostitsyn sucks as much as his brother does?

Sergei played with a real bee under his bonet again tonight. This kid is something. He's got that something to get him to the next level.

By that logic, we could say that the suicide pass is also called hockey.

I didn't see anything after the hit. Did Kostitsyn have to answer to that hit at any point in the game?

The thing is, it wasn't a suicide pass if Kostitsyn hadn't jumped over the boards early.

Does he have that sort of game?

How many other players could step off the bench like that and throttle and unsuspecting player?

Even more interesting is how he pursued Kindl after the refs had him well tied up. That takes guts.

So the thread is going to turn to shots at someone with the last name Kostitsyn? Shocking.

For those thinking that Kostitsyn didn't get him good, Downie didn't play tonight. I don't remember seeing him get injured on any other play, so I can only assume that it was related to that hit.

For those interested about SK:

Here a link to a Sergei Kostitsyn video montage from last year http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y1WA8LntWHU. Kostitsyn recently broke the 100points mark and missed about 10games.

Andrei has more pure skills but Sergei is different in the way he works and use his body. I don't think many people would have suspected that and that's probaly he went low in his draft year.

It was also a game against the last place team - I'm sure he's banged up a little, so a game off tonight was no big deal. He'll be playing tomorrow night vs Guelph.

Last place team or not, they played poorly enough to lose it, and were only saved because Beech let in one soft goal among the 50-odd shots on goal.

Agree completely -- Kitchener played like crap tonight, with the exception of Halischuk. The backup goalie was sketchy (I'm being kind) all night.

That has very little to do with Downie not playing though.

AK doesn't quite sucks...
And Sergei plays a much more physical, gritty game.
This part of his game was probably unknown at the time he was drafted, though. (or his offensive flair) -- Or he would never had been selected in the 7th round.

A whole lot of people, including his teammates, and specifically his teammates that he leads to championships.

it's ok to admit that aside from his teammates and home fans, Downie is public enemy number one. That's his game.

I wouldn't say it's limited to just his home fans, there ARE hockey fans that appreciate that kind of game whether they cheer for his team or not. You know, the unbiased ones.

Even if you're right, it's still a LONG way from "who doesn't hate Steve Downie". The answer is A LOT of people.

Stop worrying about the wording. If he had said "DOWNIE CRUSHED BY KOSTITSYN" would it have been better? I didn't know "annihilated", "destroyed", or any other adjective had metaphysical value when determining the hardness of a hit. Hyperbole. You all do it.
