#2451353 Tootoo Waived

Posted by WorkingOvertime on 06 November 2013 - 01:07 PM

I really question Holland sometimes...why even re-sign Cleary, I mean really? Tootoo is way more important to this club than Cleary OR Sammy...

 

I agree. Why re-sign Cleary knowing something like this was going to happen?

I like our 4th line!!!

Was a great shift by Tootoo and Helm.

I'm inclined to agree.  I think a fight can set the tone, but fighting before the game even really starts doesn't do much other than get Tootoo to sit down for 5 minutes.  A good shift of him crashing and banging could've done a lot more to set the tone. 

Might be trying to inject some energy into the team at the end of a road trip.

We need another forward with a last name starting with T so we can form a TNT line, Tatar - Nyquist - ... Profit?

Tootoo.

CBJ pre-game show giving Kronwall and the Wings a lot of compliments.

Abby scores, gets demoted.

I have no idea how Abby is getting so much hate tonight- he set up the Wings second best scoring chance and is playing on the only line to consistently get chances. There are 9 other forwards doing less tonight.

Bad pass by Andersson.

100% agree. Abby was terrible last game imo. Bert has skill and size, and has good chemistry with Datsyuk. Bert looked good last game as well, he made a couple great plays but no one could finish.

Bert looked very slow last game- he got burned trying to pressure the puck carrier in the neutral zone before the Sabres goal. I'm not sure he can get to the corners and pressure the D quick enough to help that line forecheck. I think Bert is better when the Wings have the puck, but Abby is bettter all around.

#2441289 Steve Yzerman wants Game Misconduct penalties for fighting

Posted by WorkingOvertime on 03 October 2013 - 08:53 AM

I'm puzzled by people mentioning the Draper/Lemiuex and Lidstrom/Laperrierre hits.  On both occasions we had fighters on the team., on both occasions they did nothing to prevent the hit occuring.  No point circle jerking over Downey dropping the gloves when Lidstrom is already out injured.  Clearly Downey failed as an enforcer.

 

Lemiuex was a dirty SOB his entire career and enforcers did nothing to stop his cheap-shotting.

The argument of cheap shot prevention can't be proven either way. That is, we can't say there are more or less cheap shots with fighting because we don't know what would happen in the NHL if fighting were removed.

 

Paul Maurice, who has experience in both the NHL and KHL, had an interesting take on this yesterday.

Good hustle by Abby to get onside and get back into the play.

For those that don't know, this is what happened prior to the brawl. It has also been reported that Scott told Kessel he was going to jump him when they came together for the faceoff.

 

I have no problem with Kessel slashing Scott the first time, but the other times were not neccesary.
