The Rangers needed to replace Prust's toughness and abrasiveness. Tootoo brings that.
I thought they got that with the acquisition of Dorsett? If they wanted more toughness and abrasiveness, they should've held onto Mike Rupp.
He didn't play in the playoffs because the Wings and Babcock don't like to employ toughness. He was very effective for the Preds in the playoffs.
Babcock plays his best players. For years, he's put Todd Bertuzzi on the first line with Datsyuk, even in the playoffs. And there were better options like Hudler in that role to keep up with Pavel.
