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 forget. Embrace, even.

Downie is a jerk. But he’s the Penguins' jerk.

It’s not a problem solved quickly, let alone with one signing. But last season’s Penguins packed the punch of a feather duster. So soft, they nearly melted.

continued and watch the incident Madden referred to below...
