I agree but the ass, I mean mule, doesn't even shoot. He's not even doing what he's told to do. He's supposed to go to the front of the net. How many times have you seen him park himself there?

ya thats why I have a hard time liking him, he pretends to care more then he actually does iMO.

sure I'll admit I wanted him off the team when he was sucking, like a lot of other people did, but that's how it is with us fickle sports fans I guess; if Sammy somehow goes on a 10 game goal-scoring streak I'd eat crow for that, too(though if that were to happen, my head would probably explode before I ever got to a keyboard)

 

I thought he has been solid all season so far. Can't really fault him for last season as he missed just about all of it and didn't have the time to get back into game shape when he did play. Especially it being the playoffs when he did play. He's been effective for us when healthy more often than not, however.

Always have been and always will be a Bertuzzi supporter. The guy can bring it and plays a great role on a top line just like tonight. Amazing what a 1st line looks like with 3 forwards on it who belong there.

Great win.  

 

Putting Bertuzzi on the top line instead of Abby seemed to work perfectly.  He actually has skill and is used to playing with top level players.    

 

Also, putting Smith in the pressbox was a no-brainer.  Defense still struggled in giving up too many shots, but there weren't the amount of boneheaded plays that he makes.

 

Sucked seeing no-one come to Tootoo's defense while he was slashed and crosschecked while laying on the ice.  He's truly the only non-***** on the roster.   


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

Again, I didn't see it.  Is that what Tootoo told him?

 

Haha, no, that's just the joke Redmond made. It seemed to me he only said a few short words, probably something to the effect of "You f****** piece of s*** coward *****." His stare said infinitely more.

 

Seriously, greatest moment ever.


Don't Toews me, bro!

Wasn't able to watch the 3rd. Really hope to see some highlights with the Tootoo incident/death stare.

It still would be nice to have that one guy.

Lots of ambivalence about Bertuzzi on the boards these days.  Prior to tonight's game, half of LGW wanted him off the team.  Anybody willing to eat crow?

Why was tootoo even in tonight? He got 3:54 ice time

An earth-shattering observation: both of Datsyuk's goals - the Buffalo one and tonight's - were backhand bullets from roundabout the hash marks.

 

Also, I LOVED our first line tonight. LOVED. Keep Bertuzzi there forever plz kthx.


Don't Toews me, bro!

Also, for the record, I've always been a Bertuzzi supporter.

 

When I talk about the "scrubs and "plugs" on this team I'm mostly talking about Sammy.

Everybody knows that Mike Babcock wants a grittier, tougher, team and Ken Holland simply won't give it to him.  That's why he uses the hell out of the one gritty guy he's got. 


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."

He looked bad playing a couple of minutes in a role completely wrong for him against one of the best teams in the league in a game where the entire Wings lineup was awful?
Shocking.

Go back and read the original post......the point is that whether you are on the first OR the fourth line you need to be defensively responsible. You also need to possess the puck. Tatar did neither of these things in his debut. I WANT this guy in the line up too but I don't think he did anything at all to secure a spot. The team was awful and he was awful but he didn't rise to the occasion.

The first line looked great tonight, but it was one game.  If Bertuzzi still looks this good after 15 or 20 games, then Babs is onto something.

Yea, I missed the end of the game flipping between games.  Has a video of this Tootoo incident surfaced yet?
