#2359326 Tootoo

Posted by hillbillywingsfan on 22 February 2013 - 09:54 AM

Many here may think I'm crazy (what else is new), but I'd love to Toots on the 2nd line, and some pp time.

 

He's deceptively fast, built like a tree stump, and IMHO has underrated hands/skill set.

 

If anything - he'll get the crowd outta their seats, and provide ALOT more excitement if he were to get more ice time.

 

Lets not kid ourselves; the Red Wings will be lucky to make the playoffs, and if we do - expect an early exit...What the heck do have to lose?

This right here. Me and my dad said the same thing. Why not give him a chance on the top lines. Dude is just flat out fast and he really does have good hands and a pretty hard wrister. Besides our top guys like dats and z who else plays every shift like it's his last. I still don't get why abby was on the top line....If you are going to do something like that why not try Tootoo.

You guys obviously missed the third period when he went into beats mode pretty much and was hitting everything that had a puck and working his heart out to try and make something happen for this team. But oh yeah lets not see that. He doesn't score like pavs and brunner and doesn't defend like lids so he sucks and I don't get why he is even on this team.....




#2352909 Franzen spear on Perron

Posted by hillbillywingsfan on 08 February 2013 - 11:25 AM

Wings' Johan Franzen will face no disciplinary action for spearing Blues' David Perron last night, as NHL said no hearing scheduled.

 

Which is rightfully so. Perron boarded mule...mule speared perron...mule was kicked out of the game. And thats that.

#2344621 Red Wings sign D Kent Huskins to 1-year, $750k contract

Posted by hillbillywingsfan on 22 January 2013 - 02:54 PM

Like Ian White, Colaiacovo, or Quincey?  Because that's exactly who you did get. 

 

Also, since when is being overly aggressive a bad thing.  Everybody hated Tootoo until yesterday.  Personally, I think some roughneck m*****f***** is exactly what we need.  How many times do we have to say, "we need someone to stand up for our stars"?  Wizniewski does, which I can't say for any member of our current defense.

Have you stopped and compared Colaiacovo and Quincey's numbers to Wiz?? Pretty much the same. White is the only one that has a bit of the suck factor. One day we need Numbers...the next day we need a  roughneck as you put it.....



God forbid we overpay a good player as opposed to overpaying for Ericsson in the same offseason. 

hahahaha go on compare a "good" player as you call wiz to our current d men.




#2344583 Red Wings sign D Kent Huskins to 1-year, $750k contract

Posted by hillbillywingsfan on 22 January 2013 - 02:09 PM

He didn't refuse to sign with Detroit, his rights were traded to Columbus and he signed with them before free agency started.  Might want to be accurate the next time.

If I remember correctly He did make a comment saying he didn't want to play with Detroit. I may be mistaken.




#2344359 New Defenseman: Guess who?

Posted by hillbillywingsfan on 22 January 2013 - 11:38 AM

They won't tell us until the introduction of the players tonight.

 

Said player will come out last, to his own entrance music.   

 

and out skates Lebda.

Wait.....WHAT? Am I missing something here?




#2340414 TooToo - the lovable little Tasmanian Devil

Posted by hillbillywingsfan on 15 January 2013 - 07:23 PM

He's here for 3 (er... 2 1/2) seasons at $1.9m per, which is more than Abdelkader, Brunner, Eaves, Goose, Miller, Mursak and Emmerton.  At his cap hit, he's not likely to be benched.

 

Tootoo wasn't my first choice (or even hundreth) of FA's to sign.  But he's a Detroit Red Wing now.  Wanting him to fail is by extension wanting the team to fail.  I want the team to win, so by extension I want Tootoo to perform well and succeed.

 

To use the tired cliche, the name on the front of the jersey is more important to me than the one on the back.

The force is strong with this one.




#2340082 The Power Play

Posted by hillbillywingsfan on 14 January 2013 - 04:14 PM

Love it, better hands then Homer but will he be willing to take a beating like Homer is the question.  If he's going to be the front of the net guy he has to be all in and not half ass.

Well at least he will get to just stand there like it seems he wants to. hahaha




#2339292 NHL, NHLPA reach tentative agreement on new CBA

Posted by hillbillywingsfan on 11 January 2013 - 01:29 PM

Nah..Don't think taking it to PM is such a good idea. I'll stop here. It just seems a little one sided when it's fine to talk at lengths on how Bettman sucks,how he screwed the NHL,fans,players, and our dogs but when someone says something otherwise how fehr and the nhlpa should be in the same hate boat  the name calling starts and that's when we get warnings.  I think seeing 1000's  posts on how Bettman has screwed everyone and it's all his fault when we should all know and understand Bettman is just a puppet of the owners has gone on long enough as well but that's just me.

 

Again I'll stop here. and move on to talking about hockey and just let all of the Bettman hate pass on by from now on.




#2339102 Detroit Listed as a Bandwagon Fan Base

Posted by hillbillywingsfan on 10 January 2013 - 03:57 PM

I guess I still don't get why it's a bad thing to have bandwagon fans. They are more likely to do the impulsive buying of Red wings gear, tickets, $10 beers and merch from the games then most elitist fans that care that we even have bandwagon fans. New fans have to start somewhere right?




#2339058 Detroit Listed as a Bandwagon Fan Base

Posted by hillbillywingsfan on 10 January 2013 - 01:22 PM

I have never understood this. Ok we have bandwagon fans....SO....Maybe because we are one of the greatest teams ever in hockey...It's understandable. I'm not sure I understand everyone being so upset about someone saying we have bandwagon fans. Ou fan base is probably 1 of if not THE BIGGEST in hockey. 




#2338810 I need a prayer answered, please.....no toot-toot whistles.

Posted by hillbillywingsfan on 09 January 2013 - 12:06 PM

I need to contact JLA with a clever marketing idea that I know Murph will be on board with. They can spin dollar hot dog night into 'Tootoo's too hot dogs for too dollars night!'... with a Tootoo whistle thrown in! Winning?

hahahahah If you are looking to get shunned amish style here at LGW keep posting stuff like this......hahahahah
