Sammy on the top line speaks mad volume to where our team is right now.

 

Nothing much else can really go wrong for us I suppose.

 

Anything is worth a try at this point.

if he actually could shoot it wouldnt be a problem ... a shot off it thing is he always misses the net and when he does get always hits the goalies stomach ... sammys awful

Unless Toots is injured I see so many more pros than cons by inserting him. i dont care what line he is on...this is very frustrating. Energy energy energy at home and he has proven time n time again that he can ignite that crowd and more importantly spark his line and create opportunities.

This seems like a risky move, but not necessarily a bad one. It isn't like Abby had some irreplaceable skill that were missing now. Sammy can easily play the annoying pest role to make room for dats and z.
With this move, we don't have to blow up the other lines which seem to be working pretty well

Good rule of thumb is always take an octopus everywhere. Better to have one and not need it than find yourself thinking, "Damn, I wish I had that octopus".

Other than the rust he would probably be better there than Abby

Tatar!!!!! I wish! Lol

Like some have said, Bertuzzi obviously isn't ready or feeling good enough, so hopefully datsyuk can start setting up a guy that has no fear of shooting the puck. Only problem I see is zero net front presence on that line but the line of getzlaf, perry, and Ryan aren't really net front either. Until Howard gets the puck then Perry does everything he can to fall on to Howard

i'm more concerned with cleary on the second line rather than sammy on the first.... ugh *fingers crossed* 

 

expect more line shuffling than usual this game..

We are gonna pound them tonight regardless. Our big boys will come out and do damage on PP. Howard better be ready for the f***ers though.

I wonder if Tootoo was hanging out with White when he did whatever it was that pissed Babcock off...I feel like Tootoo is continually underestimated and underutilized, especially in a series against a bunch of scum like Anaheim.

Why does everyone think that Tootoo isn't going to play tonight? We need another forward. Taking Sammy from the 4th line and putting him on the 1st line still leaves a void on the 4th line. Between Tootoo and Bertuzzi, I'd see Tootoo in because Bertuzzi showed he didn't have the energy for the game at this time. So until Babcock says Bert is in instead of Tootoo, we can all just sit calmly and not jump to conclusions that he isn't being played tonight.

They're not playing him, but honestly, my original post was more directed at the notion of putting Tootoo on the top line to replace Abdelkader. In my mind, it's really not that implausible, but obviously I'm just a guy on an internet forum ;)

Well then! I don't really see the point in playing Bertuzzi who looked absolutely horrible out there the other day, but i'll let the coach do his job.

They can't bring up Tatar, so yes, it does make too much sense. Until the Griffins are out of the playoffs, we aren't going to grab anyone from the Griffs unless an injury happens and it requires an emergency call-up. Blame the Griffins making the playoffs I suppose?

Too bad the Griffins are still in the playoffs.  Jurco has been tearing it up for the last couple of weeks.  Would love to see what he'd do on a line with Pav.  That kid is going to be sick. 


GMRwings:  "Well, in other civilized countries, 16 years old isn't considered underage.  For instance, I believe the age of consent is 16 in Canada.  There's some US states where it's 16 as well.  

 

Get off the high horse.  Not like she was 10."

Bertuzzi is in no shape to be playing on the 4th line, let alone the top line.

Im A big Bert guy but he is more of a liability right now than Tootoo.

Bert size is great but it does nothing if he cant get in position in a timely manner to use it. And pucks will bouncing off his stick like golfballs off tennis rackets.
