Clarkson's hand is on Downie's jersey in that picture, not his helmet you silly goose.


Uh, no. It's on his helmet strap. Watch the video again if you like - it's pretty obvious, and it's a standard Tie Domi tactic that he used for years. Except that Domi was smart enough to keep his elbow up while doing it, so he didn't get nailed with a punch like Clarkson did.

Simple answer....Simon. Hell he is still out for his last attack, which he should serve some jail time for. Downie is a freakin punk as well, which puts him a close second. He fought Clarkson like a little girl the other night.....tried to scratch his eyes out. Pretty nice elbow Clarkson gave him later in the game though!!


The reality of how Downie opened up a cut on Clarkson, despite Doc and Chico's inability to find it...

Why was Downie "clawing" at Clarkson's helmet strap, you ask? Because early in the fight, sure enough, there he is, "clawing" at DOWNIE's helmet strap:

Of course if it was Downie, then we'd be listening to "Well, he must have been trying to yank out his hearing aid! He's an evil man and must be banned!"

It was between Avery and Downie, but since Avery actually knows how to play hockey and Downie is just a goon, I went with Downie.


In his first 12 games in the NHL, Downie already has 3 goals and 5 assists, and is a +3 in only 9:59 average time on ice. He put up 22 points in 9 games in his final OHL playoff stint, and has pretty much skipped over the AHL entirely, a place most players spend several years before a callup. He was selected to represent Canada in the World Juniors Championships (6 more points in 6 games, BTW), and was picked in the first round of the NHL draft.

Hate him for being a Flyer, or for being an agitator if you like, but it's going to be funny watching all the hockey pundits once the reality of how talented he is catches up with the "rep" the league likes to play up. He's Rick Tocchet II, it's just too bad this league is too pussified to appreciate it.
