Sammy out, Tootoo in. Anyone on here got any complaints? Didn't think so. Should provide energy, and should be motivated to show what he's got in the next couple games. (Real glad he's gonna play vs the Leafs)

Good for Tootoo.  Hope he makes an impact and sticks around.  

 

He provides a dimension we're sorely lacking.


"The leader must never close the gap between himself and the group. If he does, he is no longer what he must be. He must walk a tightrope between the consent he must win and the control he must exert."
Vince Lombardi
 
When asked who won, Babcock said, “Well it doesn’t really matter as long as you don’t lose. It’s like going bear hunting, you take a slow guy with you in case the bear is hungry.”

I'm pretty stoked for this. Shouldn't have been him that got sent down in the first place but that's just how it goes. Especially with that cursed contract Sammy fooled the Wings into signing. Atleast we will get to see some genuine energy next game. Toots!

It's a Christmas miracle!! There is zero reason why he hasn't played a game yet this season, but better late than never.

This was on my Xmas list...oh, and Im 42 years old and not ashamed.

This dude never should have been parceled out to Gr.... Give him 12-14 mins a night!

If he knows he's not literally 'fighting' for a spot, he can focus on his stregths and be an impactful point creator/getter/agitator and bloody a nose if people look at Datz the wrong way.

He played 8 games for the Wings this season before being waived. But I agree, he should always be a regular.

Actually, he's played 8 games according to the official Red Wings website.

 

Now we just need him to play more.

 

EDIT:  Sorry, Hooon.  I see you posted this whilst I was fact-checking.  My apologies to the both of you.

So is someone getting sent down or is someone else injured?

I can't figure out why he didn't get more playing time when he was up. Was it the timing of his penalties? Did Babcock think he took stupid penalties?

 

One thing for sure, it wasn't because of lack of effort or lack of grit. If all the Wings played with as much enthusiasm as 22, they would have twice as many wins as they do now.

From now on, Patrick Roy will be rolled out to and from the Avs' bench like Hannibal Lecter. - BottleOfSmoke

I was never a fan of the Tootoo signing and was surprised he wasn't bought out, in light of how he was used his first season here.  That said, I thought he never really got the opportunity he deserved and when he did play, he did pretty much what one would expect him to do.  I'm rooting for him and hope he does well, even if it means he gets an opportunity somewhere else.

I guess he'll provide some energy but we need goals and Tootoo unfortunately can't help with that.

Sammy out, Tootoo in? Wow, this actually makes some sense. Has Babs or Holland been doing some brain training with Lumosity?
