It's true that Tootoo likes to punch people in the face. However, a lot of stupid PIMs come with this guy. If they can teach him to be more disciplined and do well for us on the PK it'll be worth it because our PK was suspect at times. Especially when Helm got hurt.

There arent a lot of dumb penalties with Tootoo really though. He takes guys with him to the box in fights and roughing, but he also draws alot of penalties by pissing guys off

Compared to some guys on the team like Bertuzzi, Tootoo doesnt take many more PIMs while being a legitimate game changer physically. The wings actually may have signed the arguably hardest hitting forward in the league

He's gonna finish every single check, too. I used to absolutely despise him, given all the antics he used to pull, then hide behind a visor. He's become a player that will still raise hell like he used to, just without the cheap antics.

Sure, blame an NHL athlete on taking reasonable precautions on his future health and well-being by wearing a visor. Please, wearing a visor has no effect on someones "toughness", if anything it shows they actually have the mental capacity to understand that the benefits of wearing one far outweigh any negative effects it might have.

There are plenty of guys in the league that wear visors, and fight. I respect guys that take off the shield before they fight. Guys that fight with it on every single time are annoying. If you're gonna run around, you better be ready to answer the bell.

Gotcha, well he didn't seem to wear a visor in any fights last year.

wings havent had energy in a while, even in those blowout type games they never looked mad when they were losing. With Smith and Tootoo in the lineup we can hope for some fireworks after the whistles and guys getting ran to try and wake the team up

He may be an annoying little itch, but he's OUR annoying little itch.

This is why everyone should be happy about this signing.

I was going through my stuff on the counter this morning and came across the program from the Preds v. Wings elimination game.

Enjoy a couple Tootoo tidbits, or Toobits, if you will.

Great. Now I wish we'd gotten Craig Smith. Cupcakes, dinner, and a concert? And ice cream on top of it?

Gett'er done, Kenny.

I'm trying to get my head around what the forward situation is going to be like. Is Tootoo one who will be in the lineup every night. I looked at his stats and his games played are pretty low every year except 11-12 when he played 77 games and 08-09 when he played 72. In 09-10 and 10-11 he played 51 and 54. Was this due to the rehab time or is he a player who used in the lineup when the team need energy or grit?

The games he missed were due to injuries and him being in rehab to start the year. When he was healthy, he was in the lineup. I can't ever remember him being a healthy scratch until the playoffs last year.

Tootoo will be a regular on our 4th line. He isn't gonna be getting almost $2 mil/year to play 40 games.

I figured that. I was just checking out his stats and I was just surprised by the low number of Games played throughout his career. Hopefully he stays healthy.
