The Wings needed to add grit and toughness, so I guess Tootoo is alright in that department, though some people see him as more of a liability. Others think the Wings are going to dump him off in a deal for Rick Nash, if we don't get Parise. I have no idea what's going on, except that every team is bidding on Parise/Suter, and Zach's agent wouldn't let the Wings talk to him face-to-face...that's not good.
All I know is, we have gaping holes on defense right now, and our forward lines don't match up well with the Kings. We need Suter, more than we need Parise, but right now it looks like we won't get either of them.
And I'm still a little pissed at Lids, for retiring with so much left in the tank. You don't want to play, if you aren't the best guy at your position? Well, la-di-freakin-da. Hard to be humble, when you're perfect in every way...our last captain played three years on ONE LEG, and won a gold medal and a Cup that way. Suck it up!
