    I didn't see the game, but this is a report from a Belleville fan.

    There's video, but it doesn't show the initial hit by Downie... www.petesvideos.com/Vids/downie.wmv

    Theo Fleury is a great comparisson.

    This guy is a lockerroom cancer, a bully, and just about everything you don't want on your hockey team off the ice.

    He was definitely a lockerroom cancer for team Canada this year in their gold medal run, in which he was the teams best forward. He's also been a lockerroom cancer for the 2nd ranked CHL Peterborough Petes. Clearly his teammates don't seem to have a problem playing with him.

    Downie is a player who plays on the edge every shift. With any player like that, you are going to get instances like this occuring.

    When you go to the Petes' website, the last thing you would think is that Downie has a problem.

    Glad he won't be in my teams locker room.

    Just because he was on the gold medal team, doesn't mean he's any less of a creep.

    You seem to get 'Mark Messier dirty' confused with 'Donald Brashear, why is he in the league? dirty'

    yet, all the members of the Spits (other then the stuck up arrogant ***** he hit) loved him and stuck up for him.

    I love how everyone kicks the guy when he is down. No one on here should comment unless they are on the Peterbrough Petes or know Downie personally...And I hate the Petes.

    You know, Fleury played for team Canada 2002.

    Olympics are a very short tournament, as are world juniors. Its a world of different from those teams to regular pro teams.

    Exactly... if he can learn to control his temper and emotions, he can be outstanding.

    How dare you stick up for Downie and put down Aliu. What he did to that kid was disgusting and should have been suspended for the season.

    Akim was only defending himself. I know a few OHL players personally and they have told me exactly what happened and it's no different than what the media puts out. And yes, I'm taking into consideration that Akim is a total *****.

    And if all the teammembers stuck up for him, why did Downie request a trade out of there?

    Buddy, no offense, we'll drop the subject right now cause I refuse to relive the topic and hijack the thread, but read up and get a clue.

    you obviously have no idea what's going on

    1) downie forced several rookies to strip naked and crowd into a bathroom stall on the team bus

    2) downie engaged in other, normally illegal, incidents related to hazing

    3) downie assaulted aliu and knocked his teeth out with his stick


    theres nothing else to discuss. downie shouldnt even be playing in the league.

    Like I thought. Don't worry about it. If you believe those are the facts then fine. But please don't promote those to others.

    I am sure Mr Clarke and will have a talk with him at some point. I didn't see the hit but he does have a history of borderline plays. Can't wait for him to be in a Flyers uniform in 2-3 years. another hard nosed player with skill, just what the doctor ordered for the Flyers as he should fit right in.

    I'll take a bigger version of Theo Fleury on my team any day. Besides, there are at least 5 guys on the Flyers roster that would tune him up in practice if he gets too annoying. (and they're not 17 years old either...)

    Can't wait to see him in orange and black even if he is a total jerk

    You honestly think Downie all by himself managed to force a bunch of rookies to strip naked and get into the bathroom?
