Those morons that are opposed to fighting in hockey look at this and all they see is violence. They think coaches and owners encourage it, yet players are not told to fight! This here is really 2 great team guys battling and picking their spots. I doubt neither Downey nor janssen was trying 2 hurt one- another.They are way too skilled at the scrapping to be injured that easily.The airborne hit by Janssen a few games back will injure a player more than this will.
I am a Red Wings fan and I will give the edge to Janssen in a great brawl! It is an absolute fact that Detroit is better with Downey in the lineup and Chris Chelios has said that more than once. The Red Wings are going to need him in the line-up as games get more physical with the playoffs not far off.
