In Topic: Do we need to add grit?

I noticed Tootoo is playing in NJ on a line with Elias. Provides energy and some protection for their stars. Am I the only one who misses that little guy? I still hate that we traded him away. He was a good fit for us... Babcock just never gave him a chance. Not saying we should/could bring him back, but I miss his play style and what he had to offer.

Random question... is Tootoo still with the Red Wings? If so, they should dress him. He is like Brad Marchand with maybe a little less offensive upside.

Call me crazy, but we have been getting called for stupid penalties anyways, might as well dress him and see what he can do... he has playoff experience, as well.

Not trying to reopen the Tootoo debate, but I still feel like he could make a positive difference at the end of the night, at least more than some of our other "plugs" at the moment...

I just want a win tonight, no matter what the cost. Maybe switching things up wouldn't be a bad thing...

In Topic: Lightning sign GM Yzerman to contract extension

Kind of hard when it pops up in every other thread, and in non-related threads.

But touche. Ya got me. I will turn my "monotony" and "kicking a dead horse" filters on so that I can avoid mix-ups like this is the future.

That being said, Yzerman deserves this kind of success after everything he accomplished throughout his career, and I am happy to see that he has a found a home that appreciates him as much as we all did. It is, indeed, sad to see him wearing any colors besides the red and white, but in a way I just feel lucky to have watched him growing into the great captain that he was here in Detroit. We had him in our family for a looong time. At this point, he has earned it!

WOW. JUST WOW. Still so many people butt-hurt about the Legwand trade? Y'know what? Holland should have just dressed Jarnkrok as our #1-4 centers and we'd probably be at 110 pts and first place in our division. Getting really sick of hearing all of the crying about Legwand and Holland as a bad GM. Try to take your fingers off the keys for a sec and realize that it needed to be done and, realistically, that we might not be sitting where we are right now if it wasn't for Legwand being brought in.

Just my 2 cents. You can't drink that milk anymore, stop f'in crying over it.

Boston always plays a very physical game against the DRW, hopefully we avoid injuries tonight, play solid defensively, and come away with the win.

And just my opinion, I hope Pav sits this game out and returns on Friday. Don't get me wrong, I would love to see him dress as much as anyone, but in his latest interview, he, himself, sounded slightly hesitant and cited his "sense of urgency" as his decision to return to the line-up. I just don't want him to rush his injury... the kids are holding down the fort, and I would rather see him return at 100%.
