Most Enforcers are the best leaders. Its a fact. Even if he is a healthy scratch half the games, he probably does whatever it takes to get the guys going when hes dressed.

Bob Gainey did mention it - but GM's will say pretty much anything when they sign a guy...
I like Downey - don't get me wrong - but I don't think he's a heavy - and I'd rather see pretty much anyone else in Montreal to take care of business...
Could be worse - they could have no one like Detroit...
