I wouldn't mind seeing him dressed. I can understand if Babcock doesn't want to mess with a winning lineup, though. But you never know with Babcock. He changed stuff up in the Anaheim series, even when we were winning.
My biggest beef is that we're tougher than Chicago on paper, but our guys looked unwilling to oblige yesterday. When Bickell is crosschecking Kronwall or Cleary repeatedly after the play, I'd love to see Ericsson step in there. He's fought much tougher guys before.
Players like Quincey, Smith and Abby should also be willing to oblige. We're not playing against the '82 Flyers here, to be intimidated of anyone on their team.
Yes let's fight and take penalties, why stop with Tootoo? Lets see if we can bring up a goon from the minors too!!! Are you kidding me? This is the playoffs, we don't need a heavy. Did anyone touch Pavel not with Abby skating around. Bring in Tootoo for who? Miller nope Emdog nope Eaves nope Cleary nope. Teams fine don't change a thing. 26 hits in 2 periods 6 from Abby stay hard on their D.
Tootoo doesn't take that many penalties. We have people like Smith and Quincey taking stupid penalties all the time. Abby too.
Everyone thinks a guy who fights is automatically undisciplined and takes dumb penalties all the time. Same crap everyone said about Downey, when nothing of the sort was true.
