"@AnsarKhanMLive: Bertuzzi is out for tomorrow with lower body injury. Day to day. Tootoo recalled, Holland said."

He'll provide energy but no offense.

Not that it'll matter much with Babcock. Surely he will be played 6-7 min tops. But it is nice to see him get called up.

I don't know, with a guy like him it's possible to make an impact with 6-7 minutes ice time. IMO Pulkkinen made a positive impact last night, and he only played 7:36….

It seems like energy is exactly what this team has been lacking lately. Plus it's not like the guy he's replacing brought a whole lot of offense either. So all in all this might be an upgrade to our roster.

But with Bert there there's a possible he can score, Toots won't score at all. Energy is nice but like other posters said 6-7 min a game won't be enough to provide an impact for a player like Tootoo. Plus I don't think Babs will play him for then 5 min anyway.

Is Tootoo coming up for a fourth line role, or is a going to be a big body for the top six?

Yeah he's not going to score, but he seems to provide a good amount of energy every time he hits the ice. So if he can bring it and give us energy every ten minutes I think 6 minutes would be more than enough. Not a huge impact, but it could be the difference in the kids compete level for some other shifts and if it does that I would say it's a bigger impact than Bert's had lately. As long as he doesn't cost us a goal I think he'll help.

Poor Bert, guys got no confidence left whatsoever. Gets a break away and immediately looks to dump back to a trailer every time...etc etc.

Toots is more likely to score at this point simply because he goes for it and sooner or later will get a bounce in (where's Cleary's ass when you need it?).

Tootoo always manages to put 2-3 shots on goal.

This. He always seems to generate chances. I also think his passing is slightly underrated. I think we can all agree that he's always noticeable at least.

Yea and I think every time I"ve seen him out there on the ice, he's always full of energy and got a ton of jump. We could use that, and especially a big hit or two to make the Hawks D think about it when they've got the puck in their own end.

Is there really that possibility though? He makes everyone on his line irrelevant

Pavel datsyuk is the best player in the world because he snatches the puck from unsuspecting players and  follows it up by the simultaneous undressing of the defence pairing.  The end result is a calm skate back to his bench  where he can bask in the praise of his multiple girlfriends from the motherland.

The reason he doesn't score anymore is because he doesn't have a passing center, when he played with Pav earlier in the year he was actually doing pretty good. Bert might be slow but he's still got great hands, he just needs someone to get him the puck since he can't get the puck himself anymore.

My point is not that losing Bert is a tremendous loss, it's just that having Toots in the lineup is also not a tremendous gain.

I like that Tootoo is getting a chance to play, but this lineup with all of these injuries is an absolute joke.  It's just a shame when you think about where the Wings might be in the standings if the top guys stayed healthy for most of the year.

The reason he can't score is because he's 40 years old and is probably distracted by this prolonged Steve Moore business.  


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