Its called observation and analytical reasoning; you obviously got distracted by the "anal" part of it, hence your reasoning.

NHL players from a lot of teams have come out in public calling him dirty. But what do they know, they're just actual players, not genius message board addicts.

We are already the most hated team in the NHL for our success so why not add Tootoo.

When the Wings played the Ducks last week they sent a message as if they are to meet in the play-offs (which they both will be in) then the Wings have to realize that it is going to be hell. Message sent IMO. It's a regular season win for the Wings, could they handle that type of game over a 7 game series is the point. The Wings can't.
Did the Wings not have two or three players leave the game for cripes sake? The Ducks tossed the Wings around like ragdolls.
Certainly something that Holland has to address before the deadline and probably will. HATE TO BREAK IT TO YOU but the Ducks are the NHL's most physical team and the Wings are probably the least physical team. Sure that works in the regular season but the play-offs are a different beast.


I had to take a second look at the name of this line just to make sure I wasn't seeing things. What self-respecting Detroit fan would want Tootoo in Winged-wheel jersey?! It would be an insult to the history of the team, Detroit dosen't need a trashy cheap ***** like him, EVER. Dosen't matter if we're the most hated team in the NHL, at least it's because we beat everyone. It would be a sad day if Tootoo came to Detroit.

I don't think anyone here would disagree about the desire for hard working player that would fight for the Wings every night.

The ones that signed Tootoo adhere to a very different school of thought than the Red Wings, a different idea of what type of team they want to put on the ice, which is why I am a big Wings fan and not a Preds fan. Kinda like Gary Bettman, not dumb, just has really bad ideas.

You need to watch the tape.

Robidas was coming in relatively slowly, with his gloves and stick up. Most players turn around and get their gloves and stick up, then decide if they're gonna square off. Tootoo did his usual b.s. of jumping a guy. It was a suckerpunch.

He brings very little to the table, isn't defensively responsible, and is a dirty player.

No thanks.

If you hate that kind of play, then you'd definitely hate this play.

You get an extra 2 minutes for trolling because you obviously weren't serious in trying to compare McCarty going after the Turtle to Tootoo going head hunting on a random basis.

Thanks, its always good to see that video. thumbup.gif

yes. I hate them both passionately as the prime example of whiny cowards who
try to injure other players and turtle when someone wants to take them accountable.

truth being said, Lemieux had some offensive skills and was a contributor.
and he was a strong player in playoffs. I hate him but I don't fail to give
him what is due. he was a significant part of those teams he played for.

Tootoo... is just a dumb ass

Why? It looks like the same situation. Lemieux was just skating by, not looking for a fight, and McCarty clocks him with his glove on. Looks like the same play to me.

I was comparing Tootoo's hit on Robidas to McCarty's hit on Lemieux.

Personally I would've gone with a young Chris Chelios' flying elbow on Propp, but you may not know about that one.



Aside from the fact that there's a totally different context than what McCarty was doing, we're not talking about one isolated incident here with Tootoo. It's a pattern of cheapshots and jumping guys to "fight" them before they can even get their gloves off.

And even if you had used Chelios's cheapshot, he's still a Norris winning defenseman and talented player. Put him on the fourth line with Tootoo's minutes and even at 46 he'd still probably have more goals (and be more responsible defensively).

Tootoo is a marginal player who earns his keep by running guys and throwing cheapshots.

That instance aside, what other "cheapshot" has Tootoo committed?

Early in his NHL career, he also bit a guy during an altercation.

It's not like I'm making this up out of nowhere. There used to be a video on youtube where they did a piece on Tootoo, and they various guys around the league were saying how he was a dirty player. Some even went so far as to say he'd get what was coming to him.

Then there's his most common fight technique. Jump the guy before he even has a chance to get his gloves off and start swinging.

If you ask most hockey fans (outside of Nashville) who the dirtiest players around the league are, Tootoo is gonna be on that list.
