did you read what I said?
LAST SEASON, he played TWO WEEKS on a scoring line. notice that he posted 10 points in only 34 games. At that rate this season he'd have 20-25 points.
Read further and I said he would be good on a THIRD LINE. 20-25 points. thats along the same lines as Hudler, Draper, Franzen, Williams. Are you going to rip these guys for their awesome stats?
as for his stats this season... again, READ. I think I said he's playing a 4th line agitator role. Not exactly the position to be scoring from.
You sit here and talk about how i've been "owned" and how I must not know anything about hockey, and then make jokes to say that he's not a valuable asset to the Preds. How funny...
you keep trying to get back up off the mat, which is just stupid--not admirable.
so tootoo has worse stats this year than last? so he's bumped back down to a 4th liner? thanks for disproving yourself: tootoo has not improved every year in the league--not scoring, not in the goon department (as his current 5-game suspension shows). he has regressed and become a cartoon character, a dimwit stuck in his celebrity status of village idiot.
pow. down you go again. now, please: stay down.

There are plenty of people who have steller junior numbers but suck ass or don't make the NHL.
Take for example: Brad Twordik. Had pretty similar numbers in Juniors to Tootoo. Played his final year on the Wheat Kings the first year Tootoo did. Scored 69 points that year. Was a regular 70 point scorer for about 3 or 4 years in a row.
Where is he now? Not even playing anymore. Case and Point: Juse because you have good junior numbers doesn't mean you're going to be good in the NHL. There are so many more examples, too many for me to list.
maltby was a 50-goal scorer in the minors, i believe.
but i have no doubt tootoo can end up having a great career in the minors and/or beer leagues.

Yeah, and he's -9 career; that number would be even worse if he weren't sitting in the box every other minute. The only role that he will ever play in the NHL is the one that he is currently in- an agitator. As for Legionnaire's "suspension list", the guy has only played 165 games- so he's essentially played two full seasons (amount of games), and has been suspended once..great start. Hopefully the instigator rule goes away- if it does, Tootoo will follow.
that's the truly amazing thing that a guy who spends as much time in the box as he does STILL has a crappy +/- number

I do believe that he bit Wright. But it was never proven.
beyond lame. even for you.
