STEVE DOWNIE RUMORS & GOSSIP

Downie looking to catch on with Penguins

PITTSBURGH (AP) Winger Steve Downie and assistant coach Rick Tocchet came off of the ice and walked together toward the Pittsburgh Penguins locker room after a training camp practice one day this week. It gave them a chance for a short chat. It must have been like old times. Pittsburgh signed Downie as a free agent in July, addressing a need for grit and someone to help keep opponents...

Mario Lemieux is a Realist, Not A Hypocrite by @MadChad412

First off, I know a few other bloggers and writers in Pittsburgh have already tackled this topic, and did a much better job than me, so definitely make sure you check out the posts by Mark Madden and The Pensblog.  After signing both Steve Downie and Daniel Carcillo, Mario Lemieux and the Pittsburgh Penguins are being labeled as hypocrites by some of the media around the NHL.

Penguins Playing With An Edge?

from Jason Mackey of Chipped Ice at the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, If Carcillo makes the team, the Penguins’ third and fourth lines could feature Carcillo and Steve Downie, two of the NHL’s nastier players in recent years. Charged with making sure those two play with an edge but still within the framework of the game is Tocchet, who himself played that style. I asked...

Rick Tocchet and Steve Downie Reunited in Pittsburgh by @ChicksDigHockey

Rick Tocchet knows all about being a bad ass. Search him on YouTube and you can find enough scrums to keep you occupied all day.  No one would ever accuse Tocchet of being a goon but he began his career mainly known as a fighter. He worked hard to hone his skills and became known as a power forward who also happened to take zero crap. He topped the 30-goal mark four straight years...

Steve Downie Now The “Penguins’ Jerk”

from Mark Madden of the TimesOnline, In 2010, Steve Downie played for Tampa Bay. He tried to break Sidney Crosby’s leg. Blatant and intentional. A slew foot on steroids. Watch the video. It’s available on YouTube, along with sundry other malfeasance perpetrated by Downie. Now, Downie is a Penguin. Crosby’s teammate. Maybe his linemate. It’s time to forgive and...

Steve Downie Returns To Hockey With A Rearranged Face After Epic Fight Last Week

During the Philadelphia Flyers-Washington Capitals game on Friday, newly acquired Philly defenseman Steve Downie got into a bit of a tustle with the Caps’ Aaron Volpatti. On the surface, the fight seemed like your everyday run-of-the-mill bout, but Volpatti got one punch in that really did a number on Downie’s face. And here’s a picture from Downie’s return to hockey on...

PHOTO: Steve Downie returns to Flyers with ghastly blackeye

During the Philadelphia Flyers-Washington Capitals tilt last Friday, Steve Downie, an agitator of some renown, squared off with Aaron Volpatti in a particularly brutal brawl (video below), at least for Downie. It was Downie’s first game with the Flyers after being traded from the Colorado Avalanche on Thursday, so Downie appeared to show some interest […]The post Steve Downie...
