I'd take Tootoo over Clune. While both are energy guys and limited otherwise, players look over their shoulders when Tootoo is on the ice. There is an intimidation factor that Clune doesn't have and while Clune had more fights how many did he win, not many so he doesn't bring intimidation and can't win fights. Sounds like a valuable grinder type to me. And don't get me wrong, I like Clune but if I had the choice between the two I'd take Tootoo.

On another note, we let Tootoo go and honestly I thought we were soft last year so low and behold we go out and sign Hendricks and Nystrom to ridiculous contracts to fill some of the role that Tootoo brought to the team. So here's my thing, people will complain about Tootoo being too expensive but then are able to justify the singings of Hendricks and Nystrom. Laughable if you ask me. And yes, while Tootoo's contract is overpayment in Detroit, we have our own set of overpayments as well.
