The one thing Tootoo brings that no one else brings is the ability to drop the gloves and win once they're off. He also has the uncanny knack of being able to change the momentum of a game with a thunderous check. Can any of the redundant pieces do either of these? Clune misses more checks than even Tootoo does. The other guys do not bring the intimidation factor Tootoo does.

While some say he's one dimensional, Gaustad is a face off specialist. Those who say he's good on the PK are the same that complain that Spaling is poor on the PK. How can that be since both were usually on the ice together?

All that said, I'd take Tootoo back in a heartbeat. Trade Goose. Hendricks in the middle with Tootoo and either Nystrom or Clune on the other wing. You want to talk about chaos on the ice and hard to play against, that's it.
