Should Downie be suspended for his hit on McAmmond?
Wed, September 26, 2007

Dean McAmmond was taken off the ice on a stretcher and transported to hospital after suffering a concussion following a dirty hit to the head 2:39 into the second period by Philly's Steve Downie.

Downie, who was drafted in the first round by the Flyers in the 2005, earned a reputation with the OHL's Peterborough Petes and Kitchener Rangers for being a hit-and-run artist.

Do you think Downie is a hit-and-run artist, or a gritty forward who always finishes his checks? Should he be suspended for the hit? Have your say in our forum.

Hey Downie, heads up

Downie deserved a suspension, and Cris Neil also deserves a suspension for his hit on Avery. Neil is dirty & always comes with the elbow. His job is to injure other players, just another goon of Murrays.

I will pay for you to take a hit like that and see how you feel. You would retire saying the league is to rough for you LOL.

GO DOWNIE!! McAmmond was a wuss...he couldn't take a kitten hitting him!

Downie is a punk that intimidated the boys in the OHL. he wont get away with that in the NHL where he will be playing against men. I hope he gets recalled in time to play the Sens and gets what he deserves not only for Dean McAmmond but the kids in the OHL to.

There is only 1 reason why Pronger was given a 1 game suspension last year in the playoffs and that is the league wanted the Ducks to win the cup! He deserved more as he was a repeat offender having gotten a 1 game suspension in the Red Wing series for his head shot on Holmstrom.

Being a repeat offender Pronger should have gotten at least 3 games minimum but that would have taken him out of the rest of the Stanley Cup finals if I remember correctly.

Jake, couldn,t have said it better myself. Downie was a national hero just like Bobby Clarke was in 72 and we all know what he did. Chris Neil,s hit on Drury was just as dirty, but some people seem to forget it even happened. Don,t get me wrong ,i do think he should have gotten a suspension, but not 20 games.I believe the that the susepnsed player should be out as long as the injuried player, and he cannot take part in any on ice activity until such time the injuried player is cleared to return. I also feel that it,s time for the nhl to take a serious look at the robocop tye of equipment.Most of these injuries wouldn,t happen if you went back to the old type shoulder pads and elbow pads. Jake ,i to am a proud leaf fan
