The only thing I see possible is because tootoo came at polak hard but missed him and crashed the boards and polak was crying about it? but tootoo never even hit him...

 

I said this in the GDT, but this happened a lot in the first round of the playoffs last season.

 

Remember when towards the end of games, tough guys were being thrown out for jawing with other players or pushing and shoving?  It's like proactive officiating.  The refs were instructed by the league to throw tough guys out of games late, so that nothing would eventually escalate.  The league was probably upset by the bad publicity the first round received last year.

 

This makes guys like Tootoo, and certainly enforcers, completely obsolete when they're not even allowed to do their jobs.  It's like creating a new set of rules that don't already exist.  

 

10 minute misconduct for being a tough guy and potentially starting a later altercation.  Nice one NHL.

Trotz had grown weary of him, for reasons no one - to my knowledge - has really unearthed. (My theory? The whistles.)

 

Granted I'm not a Tootoo fan but my theory is just that he's still too much of a defensive liability.  As the Preds got better and more competitive his defensive lapses weren't worth the energy he brought.

Tootoo sounded off in the playoffs last year about being benched in favor of some younger guys. But I dont think trotz was weary of him. The preds just weren't going to pay him 2 mil. I think they still have a good relationship.

He's already missed in Nashville. Even though he is a wing, most pred fans will always have a soft spot in their heart for the guy. In this day and age, in any sport, fans love heart and fans love hustle. Leave it all out on the ice and most fans will appreciate it. Your be hardpressed to find a bottom 6'er in the league that skates as hard, pushes his teammates, drops the gloves when needed, and can energize an entire arena the way he can.

There's definitely a lot of people around the NHL who want to fight Tootoo.  He's pissed off many people over the years.   :lol:

 

I guess the Wings knew that before they signed him.

I like the signing so far. Reminds me of McCarty. Hits, grinds, generates some movement in the opposing end, and takes hard shots when he gets them. He's going to be important later in a playoff race.

Has anyone else noticed that while Tootoo is a pretty good skater, he's awful at trying to stop?  I guess if you've been hitting guys your whole life there's probably no reason to learn how to stop, but if you watch you'll get a kick out of it.  Who was the kid from the Mighty Ducks movies who couldn't stop?   Love the guy, and love that once he gets going he's either hitting a defenseman or hitting the glass, but he's never stopping.
