If you watch it from the Dallas feed they make it seem like Tootoo got creamed in the second fight, it's funny cause I don't think there was a clear cut winner or loser in that fight, my favourite is that in the interview after hesaid he was good to go for a third fight lol, love having tootoo on the team!

 

EDIT: I also love mick singing on the replay of the first fight, his homerisms are priceless

BTW, Dillon should have taken off his visor during that long squareoff.  


According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

All this and his line generated some good scoring chances too!  Tootoo is willing to bleed for a win.  I. LOVE. THAT.

It's a pretty cowardly thing to do to leave the visor on in a fight

It's actually an unsportsmanlike penalty they rarely call, but it does happen from time to time.

I've never seen it called before, so I didn't even think of that, still pretty cowardly

They've been calling it this year when the visor wearer is the instigator.  Easy to be brave and go in fists'a flying when your whole head is wrapped in plastic.  :thumbup:

We REALLY need some whistles at Red Wings games... just sayin. Listen, you all know it's going to happen eventually, might as well get used to the idea. :D

I remember someone got called for fighting abby last year (I think) with a visor.  Of course, I've seen Abby fight with one too.  I've seen it called once or twice other than that, so it is pretty rare.  Kind of like how when they throw someone out for a faceoff violation, if the same team commits another one, they are supposed to call a delay of game, but they never do...they just drop the puck.

It is only a penalty if you instigate a fight with the visor.  Way back when Luc Robitaille picked up one of those when he fought Cheli.

 



works every time

loved toots post game interview how he called out dillon with the "rookie move" of looking for a fight at the end of a shift during the home opener.

The first half of the fight it wasn't going well, but then he got a second wind and started really creaming Dillon, good job the refs stopped it when they did.  Anyways, I always knew that as soon as he'd dropped the gloves a few times Wings fans would love him, the real questions are going to be if and when he crosses that line he so often crossed in Nashville.

If you watch it from the Dallas feed they make it seem like Tootoo got creamed in the second fight, it's funny cause I don't think there was a clear cut winner or loser in that fight 


"If I can be totally honest, it's not a lot of guys you get impressed by. Actually, it's no one else but him. From the bench, to see what move he makes -- you're like, 'I wish I could do that.' Sometimes you sit on the bench and just think, 'wow,' and you look over to the other bench and they sit there and shake their heads, too. He has great, great skills. I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk

My observation exactly.  He got rocked by those upper cuts and I thought he was down and out, but then I was amazed at how he shook it off in an instant and picked up the pace again, inflicting a lot of damage after that point. I thought the team was inspired more to seeing that there is no quit in Toots rather than to wether he won or lost. 

 

Sugar Ray used to call it being in "The Dark Closet" when a guy gets rocked like that, and how most guys can never fight there way back out of the Dark Closet.  I think Toots saw the lights flickering, and kicked it into high gear instead of letting himself get shut down. That's an amazing thing to witness. No Quit in Toots, that's for damn sure.
