not a bad tilt considering Downey hasn't dropped em in like, 15 or 16 games. Too bad the camera missed the beginning of the scrap. Could have looked like more of a draw. But from what I saw, Downey landed more, and got the takedown. Good win.
Another note to "Dallas Probert" Any line combination with Boogaard in it has more enforcement firepower than Downey-McCarty-Drake. Or for that matter DJ King as that feared lined combination didn't want anything to do with him. I can still see King chasing Downey to the bench after coming out of the box.
Wonder how Downey does next year if has the nads to throw down with Koci. Detroit dodges a bullet by not having to meet the Hawks in the playoffs. We owned you during the regular season big time ! SLIGHT edge to Downey.
Not that good of a fight, but a win for Downey. Rockhead, I mean Rockhawk, I don't know how you could give Wisniewski the victory on this one.
Rockhawk I do understand why you voted for Wisniewski. Somebody had to.
Downey once again shows why he is one of the most dominating middleweight enforcers in the league. Downey's superhuman strength was his greatest weakness here--he couldn't hold Wisniewski still long enough to land a death blow. Win Downey.
Name another line in the NHL with the kind of enforcement firepower that Downey-McCarty-Drake brings to the table.
As for Downey's gloves being "glued to his hands" against DJ King, Downey had already proved everything he needed to prove:
Big Aaron Downey tags Yanni Parros in February.
Yanni had already whipped DJ King in STL earlier that month.
Therefore, Downey has nothing to prove against King.
Plus, King has silly looking facial hair--Downey probably didn't want to pluck greasy "soul patch" facial hair out of his knuckles.
