He's wrong about Detroit not needing someone like him though, because they do.

While he certainly doesnt fill the McCarty void, at least he's better than nothing and adds a dimension the team lacks. Call him up!

Aaron Downey tally = 4 Wins (Mclaren, PARROS, *Laperriere*, Wisniewski) - 1 L (**Boll**) - 5 Draws (Walker, Fedoruk, Davison, Shelley, O'Donnell)

(* = beatdown) (** = at the end of a shift)

Preseason prediction - Anaheim over Philadelphia in 6 (ok, well i'll settle for one right...)

Bootland's feisty game will draw more cheers from the JLA crowd than all the other players combined. The Red Wings really should think about getting the audience into the game!

I agree, Detroit fans LOVE fights. Even when its a crap hugfest they still go nuts!

They're starved for action that's why. Point is JLA is a quiet place compared to many other arenas. Bootland would help get the audience into the game, not only by dropping the gloves but by hitting and stirring things up.

JLA is a library, they need guys like Bootland to step up and get the crowd going. Trust me, he'd be a fan favorite

EDIT* The guy had a 1goal and assits tonight, along with a fight with Brandon Sugden. That makes his season total 14 goals 21 assists and 233 PIM's, for GOD's sake, what the h-ll does this guy have to do to see some NHL action? dry.gif

send Mowers down and give Bootland a shot already Holland!!!!! Ugh. I feel for him and Leba, they work their butts off for this organization and Holland finds such ways to reward them.

We should call Bootland up right away.

I just realised today that Bootland was drafted by Avalanche in 2000. How did we acquire him and when?

Bootland was signed as a free agent in July, 2002.

Well, I'm not happy with the PIMs. If he comes up to the Wings and earns them by fighting, OK, that way he takes the other guy with him. But he's got a whopping 271 in 61 games, which is an average of more than 2 minors per game. That needs to be cut down. Over a full 82-game season, that's more than 6 full games of penalty time. Not gonna cut it in the NHL.

I don't know how many of his penalties are for fighting, how many are the result of a scrappy game (such as roughing), and how many are for stupid crap like slashing or high-sticking. He can't afford any from the last category while wearing the red and white.

I wonder if somebody could find that breakdown i'd be interesting to know.

Minors= 31

Misconducts= 5

Fighting Majors= 18

Roughing= 35 (other guy went with him to the box 33)

Thats all of Bootlands penalty minutes so far this year.

Thanks wow!

hmmm he needs to slow it down with the minors...I like what I see for the most part but too many minors. If he can control his game a little more...

Yeah the minors are a bit high but just about everyone on the Griffins has roughly the same number of minors because of the new rules.
