Hence my point in another thread.....People take all the discussion about Steve Downie too seriously.....We are just having fun, geez.

Someone could make some evil captions for that:
Cannon: "Daddy, Steve is beating on me again."
Ref: "It's okay son, it's okay. I'm here, I'll protect you."

While Steve Downie had a wonderful junior career, he's grossly over-rated at the NHL leve up to date. Sure he hasn't had a decent shot...up and down, up and down...but I personally don't see him being anything more than a great 3rd line player...decent 2nd line player at best. A Jordan Tootoo type player if you will.

And I'm a huge fan of this guy, make no mistake.

After all, my girl and I have a cat named Downie!

A non-Flyers fan may be seriously pondering your sense of humor with that name..

Steve Downie will see you in your dreams tonight or should I say nightmares...

As soon as I heard he was traded I knew I had to bump this. Maybe the most epic thread on this site. I've gone through and read hundreds of posts already.

Steve Downie was never actually traded from the Flyers. He simply took the last few years to walk, skate, and swim to and from the Virgin Islands. By the way, they're now just known as "The Islands".

Jeez, I was all over the first couple pages. Memory sucks and I don't even remember writing all those posts. I think I was still married back then, lol.

Steve Downie has never lost a fight, he's simply headbutting the other guys fists.
