What a crappy fight. Nothing of significance landed, Downie threw more but whatever. Ruutu is a puke, punk, piece of shyt and justice wasn't served here. He and Neil probably blow each other on the team bus, two peas in a pod.
Draw... I'm a Lightning fan, and I lost some respect for Downie after watching this. Three things happened. 1) Downie jumped Ruutu and got in a bunch of good licks. 2) Downie couldn't get Ruutu's lid off, and Ruutu capitalized by fighting back to the point of him taking over. 3) Downie acted winded and called the refs... I don't know what started it. I mean, they were chippy the whole game. But, if you're going to jump someone, then KICK THIER ASS... Don't do a little then turtle when the tides turn.
I'd heard bad stuff about Downie, but always dismissed it. Now I'm becoming a believer.
Obviously there is a lot of Ruutu-haters on this site, because I can't see how anyone - except perhaps Downie himself - can vote for Downie.
The guy is a total joke, jumps Ruutu from behind, and when his tactics fail he prays for the linesmen to step in. The "please help me" look on his face at 0:51 is hilarious :D
I give a nod to Ruutu due to Downie thinking he could punch punch punch and then, once tired, try and take down Ruutu. Ruutu didn't go down so Downie mostly covered up until the refs moved in. BUT....it's still a draw.
