Aggressive yes- Idiotic, classless and immature NO.
Of course I would not prefer White, Q or Cola....Wiz in Columbus is top pair dman, so thats a redundant arguement...like saying..."Well, Instead of Hossa we got Eaves"-Make it a level playing field here. If you like, I can give you an extended list of guys I would have preferred in Detroit who's talents are about the SAME as Wisneiski's....let me know if you would like that.
I have never hated TooToo- I was actually in favor of the signing which ( PUSHING THE ECHO BUTTON) why I like the Huskins signing. Big gritty guy, stands up for the team without the trailer trash shenanigans that go along with a toddler like Wiz and what, 5 million cheaper. YES, Yes, please. he isnt going to win the Norris, but he isnt a cheapshot artist with several dirty suspensions under his belt.
I'll take the Wiz and his .46 ppg, aggresive playing style, sticking up for his teammates, PP quarterbacking, cannon of a shot, and ability to log HUGE minutes, any day of the week. With or without his on ice attitude. If you know of some Choir Boy who was available two years ago when we needed to begin transitioning for Lidstrom and Stuart's departures that can do all that, then I'll agree that person was the better option.
Character wins: Which is why guys like Chris Pronger, Claude Lemieux, Dino Ciccareli, Darren McCarty, Ulf Samuelsson, Chris Chelios, etc. etc. etc. had such miserable careers.
