I have a feeling that Downey under Guy Boucher will be a different player than Downey under Rich Tocchet. 

We’re probably not talking 180-degrees here, but I expect him to focus more on the hockey-playing part of hockey in the next season, rather than the cheap-shotting part of hockey.

And thus, Tampa fulfills their Designated Dirtbag spot on the roster.

J.J. from Kansas I agree wholeheartedly, when he slew-footed Crosby that was my rant; Rick Tocchet!!

So TBL’s top-six forwards are all set.  Just about every objective Yzerman laid out for the summer is achieved.

Helluva summer.
