If by "spontaneously combust" you mean become a defensive liability via turnovers and poor decision making with pinches and passes, then yes, he will burst into flames. 


He may have a snook up his snizz too lmao! Not sure if you'll get the reference.

#2422237 Wings looking to trade before using buyouts

Posted by T.Low on 25 June 2013 - 02:41 PM

I agree; I DO NOT want to trade away Mr. Butterfield.  That boy's got jump, and I luved the playoff Gordie Howe Hat Trick.  Tatar brings it.




#2422221 Wings looking to trade before using buyouts

Posted by Wingsfan72 on 25 June 2013 - 02:14 PM

Am I the only one who absolutely does NOT want to trade Tatar?  As in under no circumstances should Tatar be traded because he hasn't even had one full year in the NHL to show all that he's got?  I don't understand why anyone would want to trade away so much homegrown potential.  

 

Trade/buy out the "fat", pick up an FA or two who can play a nice supporting role on this team to Hank and Pav and keep our youth and let that benefit us in the future (a la Hank, Pav, etc).  

 

If anything, Kenny can use some of his plethora of defensive prospects as trade bait.

You want less hockey? What is wrong with you?




#2420848 Dreger: Filppula looking for $5.5m/season over at least 7 years

Posted by dat's sick on 19 June 2013 - 04:56 PM

I like Fil and think this season was not indicative of what kind of player he usually is, but that kind of money and term would be crazy for him. If Datsyuk wasn't going to re-sign I would have considered giving Fil a good contract for him to stay as a backup-plan, but now he's expendable. With Nyquist/Tatar coming up and Järnkrok not far away either we have enough guys that can fill Fil's shoes.

Andersson got the pass from Tatar on the empty net 2 on 1, but instead of getting the goal himself, he waited until Tatar was in he clear then fed him for the goal.  Very cool.

Someone should photoshop Hudler's face in there somewhere.

Now please Holland, give him a winger that can put the puck in the net.

#2420364 Talking Tootoo

Posted by newfy on 17 June 2013 - 08:58 PM

How long ago did Tony Twist and Stu Grimson play? 

 

Tootoo isn't a fighter.  He's an agitator.  He doesn't hit enough, he doesn't drop the gloves very often, he doesn't stick up for his team mates, he's not big enough to scare anyone.  If he had done what he was brought here to do, he would have been in the lineup in the playoffs. 

 

As I mentioned before, the Preds invested a ton of time and money into Tootoo when he was going through his alcohol and other problems.  Why would they let him walk away for nothing, and let him sit during the playoffs also? 

 

 

LOL.  Brad May and Aaron Downey?  If you are upset that either of those two didn't earn a spot, really, what more can be said.

 

I keep hearing he's not one dimensional, but what else does he do besides drop the gloves on the opening faceoff to settle a personal score? 

 

The Wings don't have "big grinding forwards that can drop the gloves" any more or less than any other team does.  Because in this century, guys who are big, can hit and contribute at both ends of the ice aren't exactly a dime a dozen.  Anyone who's physical, like Abdelkader and can contribute other things, don't fight as often because they're too valuable to be sitting in the box.

Youre out to lunch, hes not one dimensional because he scored at the same rate as any other fourth liner on the team this season while getting used to a new team, fighting and being one of the hardest hitters in the NHL. How does a guy who is so one dimensional put up 30 points a year ago playing the fourth line? You saying he doesnt hit enough or stick up for teammates is actually laughable. I dont think hes some offensive juggernaught but he probably is a bit above average for a fourth liner, and especially for one that hits and fights like him. You also say he doesnt fight enough.. what? He fought 8 times this year, on pace for roughly 15 in a full season, who was the last wing with that many fights in a single year? Not big enough to really deter enforcers I agree with, but I guarantee you the average NHLer is more scared playing a shift against Tootoo than they are against John Scott. Theres plenty of huge hits Tootoo had this year that youre blind to, probably because hes a player who fights.

 

 

After reading this it's crystal clear someone is as big a Tootoo fan as possible

 

I'd rather get a guy like Prust OR a real enforcer plus a solid fourth line guy, but to each their own.

 

Are you saying you would rather have Prust like hes more intimidating than Tootoo out there? Or because hes a better player? I would rather have Tootoo at his cap hit considering hes just as good of a fighter, hits harder and is cheaper. Find a video of Prust throwing a hit like this
