There's a little discussion in the OT thread as well. The Hockey News has proven once again that they have no idea what they're talking about. A few excerpts:

http://thehockeynews.com/articles/19...-behavior.html

Quote:
THN.com Blog: Time for punishments that actually deter bad behavior

Tuesday night in the American League, noted juvenile delinquent Steve Downie of the Philadelphia Phantoms got a dangerous high stick up in the face of Albany’s Nick Dodge. River Rats teammate Tim Conboy furiously jumped into the fray, dropping the gloves with Downie and allegedly biting the Philly shift disturber on the hand, drawing blood.
Quote:
Of course, this is what players such as Downie or Ryan Hollweg bank on. Yeah, you may have to drop the gloves every once in a while to defend yourself after a particular egregious discretion, but you can hold your own. Meanwhile, the sport gets another black eye.
Quote:
Is this profiling? Maybe, but isn’t it better for Downie to sit a bunch of games – because the amount he has already missed in his young career clearly hasn’t deterred him yet – than to be done some serious permanent physical damage from a player sick of the agitator’s antics?
Downie gets bitten... Downie is the bad guy in all of this?

And this is why Mike Tyson should not be your role model.

Tim Conboy doesnt bite Steve Downie. Downie is blessed with the teeth of Tim Conboy.

It's insane that Downie is made to look like the bad guy in all of this. Conboy not only BIT Steve but was throwing punches when Downie was on the ice after Downie dominated him in the fight. Pathetic

That "high stick" didn't seem all that dangerous. It's hard to see in that video, but even if it was i'd love to know what that THN idiot saw to justify that BS crucifixion.

I'm wondering if the "high-stick" was the shaving thing he's done before like at 1:58 in this video:

No matter what Downie does he will get in trouble for it. Even if he is the victim... I'm waiting for the day he is suspended for shooting the puck at someone, saying, "He deliberately shot that puck at the goalie, he could have really hurt that goalie and we are gonna make an example of him."

weve known that for a while. when Laraque hit Downie from behind, Downie got hurt because he dove into the boards head first. it wasnt Laraques fault. it was Downies for diving into the boards. apparently the kid loves to win so much hell risk paralyzing himself for a powerplay.

has there ever been a case of a player biting another player before in any level of pro hockey? I won't ask in all of pro sports because we know about the Tyson-Hollyfield incident. Anyways, the AHL should come down hard because someone said it best - the human bite is one that's bacterial filled and can cause severe damage.

I say we have Steve Downie bite back, thus injecting the deadly Downavenom into his prey's bloodstream.

hell no, downie's powers come from his venomous saliva! that was conboy's plan all along, to get downie to bite him and grant him his own necrolytic powers!

ok, nerd mode off. downie should have bit his head off, ozzy style.

If I were Downie's coach, I'd pull him aside and tell him "we're going to face them again. Next time we do, you knock his teeth out. I don't care how you do it, just do it. It won't be the first time you've knocked someone's teeth out before, but this time, there's justification."

Ever since he was sent back Downie scored 1G and 4A in 2 games and **** load of penalty minutes.

Not to mention some clown bit him.

This kid belongs in NHL, he just needs a VERY serious talk. Maybe with Bobby Clarke. Hire a shrink or something lol.

Powe is injured, bring Downie in and put him in between Gagne and Knuble. Just try it. If not tomorrow sometime next week.

According to some, Hatcher bit some Devil (forget who, I could care less) in a game last year.

best revenge Downie can get is beat the ****ing punks ass in a fight clean, and score the GWG.
coming back and doing something stupid and dirty wont help matters and Downie will be in the spotlight again. Poeple will suddenly "misremember" what Conboy did if Downie does something dirty to him in the next game.
