Good, solid win. Everything seemed to click for most of the game tonight and all 4 lines seemed to be rolling.

Nah...we can't use a player like Tootoo, he will bring nothing to this team.....
 
 
There is still room on the train guys, hop aboard!


I hated him in Nashville. After about ten minutes of processing the signing I loved it and knew he would be a fan favorite. Aside from dropping the gloves, the dude straight hustles and gives his all every single shift. He brings a lot of energy and gets the crowd into it. More than anything, the dude was estatic about being a Wing from day one. It says a lot coming from a team who has had little brother syndrome throughout their whole existence.

if they didn't stop the first fight when they did, toots wouldve turned that stars jersey red. 

 

They try to stop fights quickly when someone's jersey goes over their head.  For player safety I guess.  


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

I think what makes him great to have on our team is that his tenacity is working for us instead of against us. He clearly does his job right, he's a pest. Now he's our pest. He's been fun to watch and I'm glad we have him.

Good game by everyone except Cleary. That two-minute+ shift was entirely on his shoulders for giving away the puck three times in a row. 

 

The guy was one of my favorites, but he is horrific now.



I dont get the Kronwall hate...at least when Ericsson is on this roster.

That.guy.is.terrible.

I cant believe how little he's learned, even with years next to Lidstrom. Guy doesnt use his body, his stick, or his head. Im baffled by his contract extension.

 

... he's the most important d-man on the PK.

Got home from work just after 10 and put the game on right away, wow was I impressed with the way we played tonight. Brunner looked a little more comfortable out there, nice to see him crashing the night and playing homers role when no one else is, good tip in. Flip finally scores one after hitting multiple posts and getting robbed oh so many times and then makes it two, both from beautiful pasha feeds. not worried about kronner, he will settle down, he is just trying to expand his game more, give him a few more games and he will look much better. Ericsson didn't look all that bad considering he is still getting settled after the injury. All in all our offense was great, good pressure, but our defense looked scrambled at times (diving around for the puck a lot) but I think they will be ok they looked much more confident and solid today. Bring on the Blues!

Some thoughts:

-Good job by Tootoo to set the tone off the opening draw. The refs had to save Nystrom.
-Brunner looks like he's starting to comfortable out there.
-I still like Kent Huskins in our top 6.
-Filppula has looked better the last couple of games.
-Brendan Dillon should've taken his visor off before fighting Tootoo. Pretty annoying when guys neglect to when they're squaring up. Pretty good fight between the two.

I said earlier in another thread that Tootoo will become a fan favorite, it's happening people..it's happening!!!!!!
 

 

What will cement Tootoo as an all time legend in fans eyes, even if he were to get traded the very next day.... is if he absolutely beat the snot out of Weber the first game we play the Preds. Someone needs to.

Bert honorably tried to, but lets face bert got beat silly... tootoo could teach Weber a thing or too though (i like tootoo puns almost as much as mickey redmond does)

So people initially didn't like the Tootoo signing? He fights, out scored our bottom six last year, and we don't have to face him anymore. What wasn't to like about the signing?

The good news is that we get better and better every game. Looks like it actually was the Lockout and the lack of preparation wich caused our problems. And as we are one of the oldest teams in the league : Old guys need their time to get going. :P  

Last night was the first night the Wings played like Wings I used to watch. It was great, it was fun but lets also not forget that it was against a tired team. Kronwall has to improve, but I'm quite certain that he will once he gets used to his new role. Cleary is a different matter. I'll go with Crymson on this : Once I liked him very much, the last games were just awful. But he had one Situation yesterday that made him look like in the old days when racing with a stars defenseman for the puck and nearly got a breakaway. That at least was a good effort you have to give him credit for. Tootoo and Brunner are both great acquisitions who fit perfectly in our rooster. Well done Wings and I'm looking forward for revenge against the Blues on Friday.

No, Ericsson barely played with Lidstrom.  I think if he had, he'd be a lot better.  I always wanted Big Rig to be partnered up with Lids but Babs wouldn't listen.  Oh well.....

A few thoughts on the season so far after this game...

 

Quincey has been solid since the poor start.

Smith has also improved, and at times he looks very promising. Not his best showing yesterday though.  

Ericsson does not look very good. Nor does Kronwall although he was a bit unlucky with the penalties yesterday.

Huskins is reliable.

The top six is providing all the scoring. Brunner is efficient but very one dimensional.

The bottom six has not scored a single goal if I'm not mistaken. Cleary and Miller have not looked good at all. We miss Helm badly. Tootoo is providing exactly what is expected.

Howard is our most consistant player.

 

Overall, things are looking good.

I like how Huskins calms things down. There were one or two times when he calmly prevented some dangerous breakouts. We badly needed a defensive specialist. Brunner is the real deal, and Tootoo impresses me more every game. Usually our agitators are one dimensional talents, but Tootoo seems to be relatively smart, can shoot, and is an effective energy guy who could probably fill in on upper lines in emergencies.
