Legal? hit by Downie on Josi

I agree with you.  The league will look at it because of Downie's history.  I don't think it should have even been a charge as Downie only took 2 strides before the hit.  Downie's skates are on the ice through the hit as Josi's skates are lifted after he braced for the hit.   Clean hit.

This is how Downie plays the game, It is how he is effective. It is why the Flyers drafted him.


The important thing is that he has learned to keep both skates on the ice through the hit.


Clean hit. Shanahan will have him publicly flogged with a cat o'nine tails..

“I take issue with that [hit],” Nashville forward Paul Gaustad said, according to the Denver Post’s Adrian Dater. “He’s one of those players who looks for the crowd to cheer him on or something like that, I don’t know… it was a dumb hit and we know who did it. We play these guys several times this year.”
