Downey actually has said that playing a regular shift in GR has been good for his game because he gets into the flow, and as a regular at their games I can tell you that he looks to play first and fight second. I think he knows he'll need to develop his game, and last night he had two assists. He has 4 goals on the year as well. To boot, he's great with the kids! Point: He may be working his way back up, and has a bit more game than many fighters (but then how many do have any skill other than pugilism?)

Downey wins. I hope the Wings are smart enough to call Aaron up. They don't need Marion Hossa fighting, even though he will. Aaron is a decent player who doesn't make mistakes with the puck. He can take a regular shift and keep the flies off the Europeans.

whydont the wings keep downey??

Downey hit Maxwell once hard, Maxwell hit the ice. Downey skates to penalty box. Maxwell goes to locker room, I assume to get his face worked on. I was there and pretty close to the action, the video really doesn't show how hard Maxwell got hit. My Griffins season tickets are a lot more fun with Downey there.

There is no doubt that aaron can fight, hes a veteran...I would love to have him up with the wings, I miss proby, kocur, and even mcarty...but aaron cannot skate...I play beer league and can skate circles around him...so babcock has no choice to play the pussy europeans. But when teams figure out how to play the wings, like 1 cheapsot to lindstrom, babcock will be sorry aarons not playing.
