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...

Pens ink Steve Downie to 1-year deal

Look, Steve Downie is crazy. But when dialed in he is a perfect bottom-6 guy. This is another move that makes the Penguins better. Rick Tocchet, now an assistant with the Penguins, turned Downie into a 20-goal in Tampa, and probably turned his career around. Risk: Downie is known to take terrible penalties, probably can get out of control. Reward: If deployed in the right situation...

Downie trade working out for both teams

When the Flyers acquired former first-round pick Steve Downie back from the Avalanche for Max Talbot on Halloween, many around the hockey community threw up their hands in question. Colorado was 10-1-0 at the time. Why did the Avalanche believe that was the time to trade a player skating on its first line for a player best suited for the penalty kill? Soon after, multiple reports...

Downie owns up to 'bad penalty' that cost Flyers

Steve Downie had already gotten away with a trip, maybe two calls on the same shift when Tobias Enstrom hit the ice. Maybe it was a hook. Or maybe it was a dive. Either way, the officials were not going to let that slide three times in succession. No way. And that penalty led to a tying power-play goal that cost the Flyers two points in regulation. They settled for one in a 3-2...

Steve Downie is either the Terminator or really needs to get his eye checked out

During last Friday’s Flyers-Capitals game, Philadelphia forward Steve Downie decided to drop the gloves with Aaron Volpatti of the Capitals…a decision he probably regretted soon afterwards. In the bout, Volpatti delivered a solid blow straight to Downie’s left eye, immediately opening a cut and causing some swelling. You can see the blow above, and here’s what Downie’s...
