new fan favorite right here.


He will be you wait! If he hits everything in sight like he used to this may not be that bad. but as far as Sammy goes...did Kenny lose a bet?

Something is definitely up, we got 3 new forwards now today and Not enough room for everyone! I feel a trade...Tootoo is one of those guys you hate to play against, but love on your team. Like the signing, hate Sammy though! Roller coaster day so far! Maybe some extra incentive for Suter to sign?

I like it! For the grit aspect alone. Excited Wings are actually making deals and doing something! Now let's get Sutter AND Parise please!

I think I might go into convulsions followed by heart failure. (Not from excitement either).

Tootoo has turned his life around he is a really positive guy and will be great in locker room... He always plays like he has something to prove. Him and Abby will be great together. Like this signing

I wanted the Wings to add some grit, but Tootoo would be about at the bottom of my list.

Dirty player. Questionable defensively.


Agreed. I don't like him. He's a hit-and-run little punk. And just like the JLA staff won't let people pound on the glass, let's hope they take any whistles and shove 'em.

"He even ate with women who at that time were accorded the same status as the family donkey. Are we willing to break bread with, say, child sex slaves, transgender teens and undocumented workers? Because when Jesus comes back to Earth, that's where he'll be hanging."
You can easily judge the character of a man by how he treats those who can do nothing for him.

Guy is a total douchebag. We just lost classy team status that for sure. Terrible signing.


How do you know he is a douchbag?

He has been going all around Nunavut the past week going to different communities meeting and signing autographs for inuit kids,

yeah hes a real douchbag......

Holland has to have something stirring to move some forwards out. That's 2 today, and a full-court press to land Parise tomorrow as a 3rd.


Yep. Can't imagine a trade not on the immediate horizon given these signings. I think Suter's coming, but I think Nash might be too for Flip and Franzen and xxx. Nash's cap will be offset by Flip/Franzen and that still leaves room for Parise who might be more inclined to come with Suter and Nash joining as well.

None of these signings affect the Suter/Parise contract talks at all.. Signing Tootoo and Samuelsson has no bearing on signing the other two. Remember, soft cap during the summer is $77-million.

We finally got our toughness that everyone wanted. I don't mind Tootoo. Plus he took less money to come here.

No Parise now. We're probably throwing the bank at Suter.

I will personally throw down the aisle anyone who brings those stupid whistles to games. Even small children and pregnant women. My favorite FakePavelDatsyuk twitter this whole last year was "I like play in Nashville. They blow whistle for easy shift"

I like this signing if Tootoo plays much like Dallas Drake did. I'll wait to see how he performs before deciding in this case, he deserves a chance.

Here's my reaction to him and Smauelsson. Something has GOT to be brewing in the trade department. I don't think we'll land Parise (I will be stunned if we do) so we are going to need a top 6 Forward. I am wondering if a Nash or Ryan trade is in the works. I still think we get Suter.

Babcock has already said Brunner will get top 6 minutes to start. He will be on the 2nd line with Flip and Z.
