Tootoo was always annoying to play against, but the more I've learned about the guy off the ice, the more I really like him. It's really a bummer that his role didn't work out so well with this team. I think he could've been of help if the offense wasn't so flooded with guys. Gotta hand it to the guy for having such a good attitude about playing in Grand Rapids though. I'm sure he's not thrilled about it in the context of what he expected when he signed the deal, but it seems like he's making the best of it.

His role did work out.  He did exactly what he always did.  I can't for the life of me figure out why they signed him in the first place.  On top of that gave him a 3 year deal, only to bury him in the minors and pretty much ending his career.

Thanks for posting this... it made my day!! The reaction of Cap'n little boy will be with me all day... so fun! Atta boy Tootoo, here is hoping that with some of the dead things off of our roster next season there will be a spot for Tootoo and what he brings. I would love LOVE to see Tootoo flatten that sail on Marchands face.... I would react just like Capn's little boy!!!

I love it, when hockey players are doing something like this way to go Tootoo way to go.

 

The smile on this kids face is amazing, so happy for him

Me neither. But it's even more of a mystery why he signed here.

Toots should have been up all year! Defensive liabilty and not great skater who fuxking cares. Easily a 25-35 pt guy with mins each night.

Why not use his assets as an an actual asset. Would it not be a good move to give Marxhand his own tactics back and maybe the ***** rat would actually fight. I know babs hates it but having he, lucic or chara off the ice 5 mins seems like a win.

One thing always said about Toots off the ice..classiest guy youll ever come across.

I don't think he was exactly a coveted free agent by other teams.  I'm guessing they didn't say, hey we're going to sign you to a 3 year deal, give you very little chance to play even though you're doing exactly what was expected,then say nice things, but then banish him to the minors.

How we cant find room for this guy on the 4th line is beyond me.
