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

Dirty player. Questionable defensively.


This.

Shell out the extra dough that Prust apparently commands.

Tootoo is a POS. And now we're having to defend him coldcocking people. BARF!

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.


I agree he deserves a chance. I'd love to be proven (proved?!) off base on my take.

"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.

Interesting move. I will say this much: Detroit has seen this guy play for years, so he must bring an element they wanted. And frankly, I think his behaviour issues stemmed largely from his addiction problems, which he has been able to overcome. He's come a long way since then, maturity wise.

One thing I am concerned about is that he didn't seem to take kindly to being sat out sometimes in the playoffs, and I'm not sure he'll play every night here, though his salary would suggest he will. That said, he did score 30 points in 77 games this year, so he has the ability to contribute offensively -- more than can be said for many similar kinds of players.

Now Samuelsson...I'm not sure how to rationalize that one...

Can we also trade for Ott? Abdelkader-Ott-Tootoo would be everyone's favorite 4th line!
Sweet. This dude was brought here for one reason, to punch people in the head - every other thing that he can do, other Wings can do better. I like that we have a head-puncher. The league has other, better head-punchers, but this one is ours. Better than nothing. Good work, Kenny!

It's looking like the Wings need to make a trade, and that line would be amazing.

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.


Gotta say it - I wouldn't mind seeing Franzen go, even when I know he'll probably shape up and play harder on a different team. At least for awhile.

"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."

Tootoo was a healthy scratch on a team that was BETTER than the one we had WITH Lidstrom. I have never been more pissed at the Wings. I have never gotten THIS MAD. I want him gone NOW. THIS IS THE SECOND WORST DAY IN WINGS HISTORY.
"It is a lot easier to be an ******* to words than to people"-xkcd

Tootoo does NOT belong on this team. He is classless and I would rather see the Wings be bad than classless. I feel the same way about Bertuzzi as well, but he at least CAN make the team better. With Tootoo the team becomes worse and in danger of being classless. Would you have liked Claude on the team? Or Roy? No. So why would you be okay with that POS.

This thread has been closed due to emotions being higher than people's ability to read, interpret, and properly respond to simple posts.

I think this might be a little dramatic. Tootoo has potential to be a very very good 4th line player for the Red Wings.
