I said I wouldn't post again, but unfortunately there's morons like you.
Go find any fan of the Brandon Wheat Kings to see if Tootoo was popular when he played a "clean" game.
He can EASILY change if he's put in the right position. As of now he's playing a 4th line agitator role and excelling at it. for a few weeks last season, due to injuries, he was bumped up to the top line playing with Kariya. Nothing dirty or anything, he played a scoring role and actually did well. I think he he were on a team that rolled 3 scoring lines, and he was put on the third line and told "score, don't agitate" then he would be able to do it in a heartbeat and enjoy the heck out of it.
Everyone saying how out of control he is, obviously hasn't been paying attention for the last 3 years, because he has consistantly improved his game since he came into the league. He is a smarter player, he's taking fewer penalties, picking his spots better and drawing a lot more penalties. So anyone saying his play hurts the team doesn't have a clue because he puts us on the power play a lot more than the penalty kill.
And I LOL at the people saying "he'll be out of the league in 5 years" to say that he's not good enough to stick around. if he lasts another 5 years, that'll be 8 seasons. Do you know how many players don't last 8 seasons?
Sorry if people think i'm being a homer, but i'm just telling it like I see it.
played a scoring role?! his awesome stats this year: 3 goals, 4 assists. period. that's it.
in one sentence you're saying he CAN change (meaning he HASN'T) and in the next sentence you're saying that he's "improved his game each year he's been in the league." Really?! and no poster here was the first one to bring up the fact tootoo has to change his game or "be out of the league in 5 years." your beef is with the hockey night in canada crew, in particular kelly hrudey. who, unlike you, is NOT a flaming preds homer.
you've been owned repeatedly. stay down on the mat. move on. dial up some funky country music tonight and sleep it off.
that's your tip of the day.
