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 there really that possibility though? He makes everyone on his line irrelevant
Holland has let this team get worse and worse since 2009. He made the choice, that's fine, but has done very little or been very stupid in trying to rebuild this team. He has this off season to make it right, if he says and does all the exact same things he has been doing over the years, then f*** him!
start by trading Jimmy and then throwing the top allowed dollar amount at Ryan Miller. This team will never win with Jimmy.
Wins: 30th with 13 wins......Top 19 goalies all have 20+ wins
Overtime Loses: 1st with 10 (yes 10! overtime loses, not good)
GAA: 40th (subtracted a few guys who played less than 10 games)
SV%: 40th (again subtracted the guys with less than 10 games)
So what we have is a goalie who is CURRENTLY 30th-40th in terms of numbers compared to other NHL Goalies and has the most overtime/SO loses (meaning he isn't very clutch when the time comes).
I stressed Currently because you can argue about what he did in the past or what he might do in the future, but RIGHT NOW he is not very good. and nowhere near ELITE, unless you consider being the 30th best goalie in the league elite!
Edit: And I understand that it's not 100% his fault, the rest of the team has some impact on these numbers, but that only gets you so far. I mean Ryan Miller was putting up better numbers in BUF and they have a really s***ty team.
During the devils and wings game the devils Chico was wondering why monster hasn't gotten more starts and that he should have more I have to agree goals for goals against save percentage are simply statistics which have do not show up in the standings his numera are what they are but his record is the more important result
