#2420005 Talking Tootoo

Posted by Bring Back The Bruise Bros on 15 June 2013 - 12:16 AM

I don't understand how or why Tootoo should be bought out. He did exactly what was expected of him. Also, the "one-dimensional" argument baffles me. He put up 8 points in 42 games. For comparison, Emmerton put up 8 in 48. When I think of one-dimensional players, I think of John Scott and Jody Shelley. And the notion that "he takes stupid penalties" is laughable, considering guys like Smith and Abdelkader have, on several occasions, taken idiotic penalties at the worst possible times during games. Don't remember Tootoo blowing any games for us.


#2419200 2013 Stanley Cup Finals - Boston Bruins vs. Chicago Blackhawks

Go Bruins. They've got a great blend of finesse and snarl, as they have for several years, now. The team is full of guys that go the extra mile to fearlessly block shots, etc.

We probably won't see Andrew Shaw and Bryan Bickell running around like they did against us.

Hopefully Boston can shut down Chicago's top guys, just like they did to Pittsburgh.

I'm right behind the penalty box. Wearing a wings hat. LGG

I'll be at game 1 :siren:


#2416992 ECF - (4) Boston Bruins vs. (1) Pittsburgh Penguins

Boston did a good job of shutting Crysby and Shrek down.

I wish Chara would've cross-checked Crosby in the face after he went after their goalie. And I hate Chara.


#2415975 Franzen Buyout?

Sammy and Tootoo should be bought out

I don't see why Tootoo should be bought out. He did exactly what was expected of him-play physical, drop the gloves when needed, and put up a few points.

Yeah they deserved to win that game in the same way that the kids camped out in New York deserve jobs.  Entitled little s***s.

People want jobs that will actually pay a living wage?

What a bunch of entitled little s***s.


#2409028 Should we bring Tootoo in for game 4?

Posted by Bring Back The Bruise Bros on 21 May 2013 - 05:58 PM

I've been a critic of Babs not playing Tootoo regularly throughout the playoffs, but there is no reason to change the lines after a big win, especially since Eaves and Miller scored yesterday.

Seeing Bickell run around after the whistles and stuff yesterday was especially humorous, considering he had 1 fight in 48 regular season games this season. The guy is built, and he's effective when he plays a physical style, but he's a fake. 8 career NHL fights.

I still don't understand why Tootoo isn't playing. Honestly.




#2405759 Why is Cleary still on the team?

Posted by Bring Back The Bruise Bros on 16 May 2013 - 01:34 AM

He's made a great comeback since coming here in 2005/2006, but it is time for him to hang 'em up. He's just not effective anymore. Guy played with heart, grit, and determination in his best days, but he just looks out of it a lot of the time now.

 

I'd be upset if we brought him back at this point in his career.




#2397687 Playing Eaves over Tootoo

Posted by Bring Back The Bruise Bros on 06 May 2013 - 06:24 PM

No reason to sign Tootoo if you aren't going to play him in a tough, physical playoff series.  
 
He brings more hitting and energy than our other lower line players.  

This.

Doesn't make any sense to me. It's not like he's a goon that can't skate for his life. He can skate a regular shift and he's built for the playoffs. It shocks me that he isn't playing.

Aaaaaaaand its ruined.




#2382512 Thinking on 2013/14 roster.

Posted by Bring Back The Bruise Bros on 09 April 2013 - 02:54 PM

If Filppula is really looking for around $5 mil, he can walk. 14 points in 32 games? See ya.

Cleary has had a solid career since coming here after the lockout, but he is no longer effective. 12 points in 39 games. We need to start getting younger. Cleary needs to go.

Bertuzzi and Samuelsson need to go. Both are extremely injury-prone. We need to get younger.

A lot of players making an immediate impact for their new teams.

-Jagr scored in his first game with Boston.
-Clowe scored twice in his first game with NYR.
-Gaborik scored in his first game with Columbus.
-Rosehill scored in his first game with Philly.
