Tootoo

Our power play failing to score when given the chance is not Tootoo's fault. He's doing exactly what he was brought here to do.

Agreed.

And I think a good number of us would like to see his role/playing time increased...It's not like we have anything to lose here.

Yes, he should be playing more for sure. Babs should try him with Dats. Tootoo is the hitting machine he can create to and Dats could find extra space to show his magic

Edit:

TO = turnovers

Exactly.

Buzzing around the net, nailing the opposing Dmen, and digging loose pucks outta the corner is something he could provide on 1 of the top 2 lines, and if/when push comes to shove - well he'll do more than a Bertuzzi "Bear Hug", or an Abdelkader "my face is your personal punching bag".

Mind you he'll need to watch himself; no more diving, or behind the play crap...There's a time, and place for everything, but if he ever had a shot at playing 14 minutes or more a game - he needs to make the most of what he can offer.

Toots is always sniffing the net, you can tell that dude wants to score. Mick says it every shift

" that son if a gun never stops skating".

Hustle and heart more times than not will beat out complacency and talent.

I don't get why Tootoo is all of a sudden such a fan favorite. We need hockey players on this team. Not goons. Goons don't help us when we can't score a goal of the Blue Jackets after the first five minutes. Oh whoo he fights. Great. Let me know when fighting gets you goals.

Obviously, you don't know the definition fo a goon.

The were a lot more variables in 09 than the lack of enforcers. And even so it came so close they could just have easily have won the cup.

Also you can't honestly tell me you would rather have Tootoo than Hossa.

Why are you even comparing Tootoo to Hossa?

Many here may think I'm crazy (what else is new), but I'd love to Toots on the 2nd line, and some pp time.

He's deceptively fast, built like a tree stump, and IMHO has underrated hands/skill set.

If anything - he'll get the crowd outta their seats, and provide ALOT more excitement if he were to get more ice time.

Lets not kid ourselves; the Red Wings will be lucky to make the playoffs, and if we do - expect an early exit...What the heck do have to lose?

With as bad as the power play has looked, why not try Tootoo in Homer's spot in front of the net? Give anything a shot at this point to get some life into it.

Agreed.

Last night we saw Abby standing there, or should I say "wobble" there...I never realised until now how "solid" Homer was in front of the oppositions net; that guy was a lump of granite.

Toots could quite possibly be capable of doing a better job than Abby - although he's gotta realise that taking the occasional dive will start to work against him.

Toots will be so busy scoring with Pasha he won't need to dive as you suppose.

Weebles wobble, but they don't fall down. Clearly based on evidence, Abby is no Weeble. He spent more time on his face than on his skates playing the Homer spot.
