This guy is gonna get creamed one of these days...you never see him fight anyone who is a noted fighter.Man up and take off the viser kid!

Posted by BattleAxe13 on February 09, 2008 at 08:30 PM

Downie the girl scout brownie can't handle a hit so he pummels someone who doesn't fight. Way to teach him a lesson punk. Why don't you just hit him back.

Posted by dansal55 on February 09, 2008 at 06:46 PM

Can't stand Downie. Voted for him, but I'll hate myself in the morning. Heard he later challenged Toots 4 year old daughter.

Posted by TheShaneTrain on February 11, 2008 at 11:08 PM

payback for hit along the boards. tyutin ain't exactly the fighting type, but i don't really think that maniac downie really cared. win downie, despite the fact that he isn't earning any toughness points for this one.

Posted by SirYohans on February 09, 2008 at 11:24 PM

Oh My God! U Flyer fans just tell yourself lies to justify all the dirty & wimpy play out there. I swear I just read a ton of things on here that ain't even true. 1) Tyutin doesn't wear a visor u boneheads, so yes it is yet another cheap play by Downie, because the replay showed that Hollweg caught up to Downie and slammed him on his back. And of course Downie gets up to grab the Non-Fighting Russian Dman who can't even spell fight. Real Classy. & saying Tyutin often gives cheap hits? Never, U just made that up. 2) Some idiot said that Avery is exactly like Downie. Sorry, Downie has surpassed Avery's "Most Hated Player Rep" in just 20 games. Avery has only delivered clean hits & fights fair since he got to NY. I don't know about his game b4 NY but I haven't seen anything cheap from him (and NYR fans who watch daily will agree.) On the other hand Downie is in the news twice a week for straight up dirt. Avery's hated cause he trash talks. Do u ever see a penalty next to Avery's name that says "Match Penalty, Intend to injure & game misconduct" for Yapping... 3) Then my favorite lie of all. This one had me rolling. Some non-sense about players born after a certain date have to wear visors rookie year? What? That's why Dubinsky & Stall (who are rookies) and i Bet they are younger than Downie & they don't wear visors. Get your facts straight if u gonna defend what u know is wussy play. Don't just make up stuff. Then u cry about how there's so many Flyer haters. I wonder why?

Downie's a punk.

Posted by eves118 on February 11, 2008 at 02:40 PM

Poor Tootin He should keep his gloves on. I must say though he's got more B**ls then Avery. At least he dropped em.

Posted by njteech on February 10, 2008 at 07:14 AM

That Downie knows how to pick em' and with a face shield too...Philly Tradition continues........

Posted by joeyjoints6874 on February 10, 2008 at 12:57 PM

I want to know what happend to the ref, he was bleeding pretty good but it is clear that it wasnt a stick in the face cause both sticks were down and away from the refs face, i cant even see what hit him, and there is one good angle to show that

Posted by Jack Schitt on February 10, 2008 at 09:36 AM

Rags announcers : "Now Tyutin doesn't want to stop" .... Huh ? Stop what, eating punches ? The refs couldn't pull Downie off him fast enough ....

Posted by Poop Jack Pappy on February 10, 2008 at 10:52 AM

Downie did whup Fedor"s rear but the punk kept his visor on. Maybe he should wear a full facemask to prevent damage to his mug. Downie wins

Posted by kevshockey on February 09, 2008 at 06:32 PM

Take the visor off if you want to fight you girl and why not pick on the Russia too. Wow of all the people on the ice to pick a fight with Downie chose the easiest victory he could find. Toots is a great player but those gloves should be Velcroed to those hand.

Posted by ETR on February 09, 2008 at 05:53 PM

Downie with the win even though he's a piece of crap. I guess he can't take getting hit by a clean check.

Posted by jealeman on February 09, 2008 at 05:49 PM

Downie is very brave behind his visor...I can't wait till someone drops that punk. In my opinion, the entire Flyers team is dirty. The Orr/Cote fight was great. Too bad for Tyutin, Downie was better, but still behind that visor.

Posted by JDForCommish on February 10, 2008 at 12:36 PM

Toots what are you doing. At least somebody whether it was toots or someone else cut Downies lip but Tyutin should never fight again. however downie should have taken his visor off to fight a non fighter

Posted by mAnYsTyLeS on February 11, 2008 at 12:24 PM

Downie with a win against a guy that NEVER FIGHTS. What a p*ssy Downie is - if I see his mother I'm going to slap her for the manners she gave him. Not only that, but the idiot kept his visor on - disgusting, simply disgusting. Rangers rock suckas.

Posted by bdt on February 10, 2008 at 03:20 AM

Downie does not belong in this league he's a peice of shit, he really is a harmless fighter but he wins this one, can't wait to see him carried off on a stretcher!

Posted by range on February 09, 2008 at 08:46 PM

How about if you are wearing a shield you t ake it off before you drop the gloves or you get an additional 2 minutes. Guys who stick up for their team mates shouldn't have to deal with guys with the shields on.

Posted by EvanP68 on February 09, 2008 at 07:19 PM

downie won this fight and for those saying he should take of his visor, rookies born after a certain date are required by the nhl to wear visors there first year. its a rule that is being implemented kind of like when they first required helmets. he could have taken off his helmet, but why would he seeing as tyutin didnt take off his. so i think you can all stop with this visor crap.

Posted by BigMoses on February 10, 2008 at 01:09 PM

Haha, I've never seen so much whining. Everyone knows Downie is a dirty little head-case, we've heard about him since he was 15 fighting his teammates in practice, he offers no surprises. He took a hit he didn't like, and took care of his business, visor on visor (until T's lid comes off). I can't wait to see him get owned one day (hopefully by Phaneuf) in a career-ending melee, but in the meantime he creates some great drama for us all to watch. I love Toots, but he should have known better. Downie might be the only player who has the power to fight anyone in the league, because everybody wants that chance to crack his head open and do everyone a favor; too bad he's a half-decent scrapper (when actually fighting someone who throws).

Posted by billy jack on March 13, 2010 at 05:50 PM

downie dropped him,clear win by downie,i like to see people like fedor answer to the crap they dish out.fedor is twice the size of downie and much more experience,yet he got pummeled.

Posted by Juha82 on February 10, 2008 at 04:18 PM

Downie dominated for the easy win, no more.

Posted by clmetsfan on February 09, 2008 at 06:02 PM

Downie sure is a bad ass. Goes after a guy who never fights following a clean check while wearing a visor. Philly's love affair with this cheapshotting bi--- is mind-boggling.

Posted by JMac1536 on February 11, 2008 at 10:18 PM

who the hell voted for tyutin? Downie wins hands down. Downie is an animal!!!!!!!

Posted by dgreen1355 on February 09, 2008 at 08:09 PM

Stop complaining about Downie! You have his twin in Avery! Oh yea, Tyutin wears a visor also, but his flew off when his butt got destroyed. When you are a cheap hitter like Tyutin, you tend to get people pissed at you. That particular hit was actually awesome, but he often hits players late and cheap. No one is crying for him.

Posted by BooSanta on February 09, 2008 at 06:32 PM

Watch other replays of this fight. What I saw at the game was Downie clobberin Tyutin, then Grabbing the back of Toots Jersey, lifts him up and slams him face first in the ice before they got up and Downie started wailing away again. Wouldn't you love to see him take on Avery. In all Fairness, if Tyutin wants to lowbridge someone he has to expect a beating. Maybe Downie is trying to get on the refs good side because the toots check caused downie's skate to slice up Dipuzzo's schnoz. Perhaps he was avenging the refs. Last year a bunch of Nhl Players voted Avery as the most hated player this year. It appears the fans hate Downie this year. Avery and Richards should have gone at it later but the refs stopped them. Avery compensated by squirting a flyer announcer with a water battle on the player benches.

Posted by mace14 on February 11, 2008 at 10:08 AM

I know everyone hates downie but if you watch dowie gets tossed to the ground by tyutin if your going to do that learn how to fight downie is aloud to stick up for himself. Downie wins with no problem.

Posted by HammerU on February 09, 2008 at 10:21 PM

You're a punk

Posted by Rebel Banker on February 10, 2008 at 08:06 AM

i love the d-bags that gave tutin votes...the guy didn't even throw a punch...he's a pussy, no big deal, deal w/ it

Posted by tpr1960 on February 09, 2008 at 10:46 PM

obvious win for downie

Posted by brennank on February 10, 2008 at 10:45 AM

DOWNIE whoop him good!!! He needs to do more of this stuff!!! Here is a thought Ranger fans!! When the FLYERS sign Forsberg!! Downie moves to the 4the line with COTE and Boulresse or how ever you spell his name!! Match that up against Holpuss, HORR and that other Hollywood girl Avery!!! Witch are the only tough guys the Rangers have!! Put it this way you won the game but bthe FLYERS KICKED YOUR ASS! OVER AND OVER THE YEARS!!!! So start bending over again!!!!!!! Sir yo Hans IS a PLUGG!!!! How much money does NYR have to spend to match the talent gthe FLYERS DRAFT year after year!!! REAL HOCKEY MINDS REAL HOCKEY BLOG!! VISOR ARE A PART OF THE GAME!! Next time Downie or Richards takes their helmet off they will shove it up your A**!!! FLYER FANS!! EVERYONE HATES THE TEAM THEY WISH THEY HAD!! THINK THIS WAY THE ARE THE 2nd youngest team in the NHL!!!!!!!

Posted by craigermcb on February 10, 2008 at 08:13 AM

Downie is a piece 'O' Crap !!!! Gotta love guys who wear big ass visors and pick fights with guys who don't know what they are doing, loser !!!That goes for Mike Richards too........Really, How hard is it to take your visor off before you scrap ??? Iginla can do it !!!

Posted by aerotunes on February 10, 2008 at 11:47 AM

Once again the 3rd place Flyer fems prove their cheap shot nature. Big bruiser Downie likes to fight with his face shield on? Reminds me of Bobby Clarkes cheap shot days.

Posted by nycbob on February 10, 2008 at 10:13 AM

win for tyutin, downie had plenty of time to drop the helmet. should be an extra 2 minutes for fighting with a visor. downie is jerk, makes avery look like class act, and that takes some doing.

Posted by adamfry on February 11, 2008 at 10:19 PM

How does a rational person rate this a win for Tyutin or even a draw? This is a site to rate hockey fights not a personality contest or a place to judge someone wearing a visor. Tyutin was willing to go and got destroyed in all aspects of the fight plain and simple - if you think otherwise you are a jackass.

Posted by Chill on February 09, 2008 at 11:56 PM

If Downie went low like that on a Ranger man you Flyer haters would still be yappin about it, I just dont understand all the Flyer hate.

Posted by nofx8881 on February 09, 2008 at 06:23 PM

Downie dominated him. Not much of a surprise. Too bad he let up when he did. He could have destroyed Tyutin, but chose not to.

Posted by demiseofaugust on February 09, 2008 at 11:34 PM

do any of you idiots actually play hockey... Who cares if he wears a visor... in the middle of a scrum youre not thinking oh i have to take my helmet off... eat a d.ck
