Twist n Belak: agree with some of what you're saying. The team is painful to watch anymore and if I were Hextall, I'd listen to any offer for just about any player come the trade deadline. The flopping shit is just that, shit! Did Manning go down easy on the slash, possibly.
As far as your comment of "turning down McDavid multiple time in the first meeting" I wouldn't say he turned him down. Manning is no heavyweight but I'd put my money on him beating the hell out of McDavid 10 out of 10 times. McDavid will run his mouth as he has plenty of muscle around him to protect him.
Manning lost the fight last night to Maroon but held his own. With that said, McDavid wouldn't stand a chance against Manning.
As far as injuring him last year, watch the tape slowly my friend. McDavid caught a rut and lost his edge. Any fan who has seen that tape and watched it several times and even in slow motion will tell you he caught a rut and lost it.
