How will Tootoo be received on February 19?

Nashville plays Detroit on Feb. 19th, and I was curious to how you guys think he will be "welcomed." Clearly, there is some tension, but he was absolutely the most loved player for a number of years to many fans. I am not happy with the way he left, but he was sure as hell fun to watch. Opinions?

Fans will cheer when he's shown on the jumbotron, whistles will blow when steps on the ice, probably forever this will happen, even after her tattoos Josi.

Probably not a video tribute, but I wouldn't put it past the front office.

Suter, I hope he's boo'd out of the building forever, and will throw up if there's a video tribute for his punkass.

There will be a massive difference between Tootoo and Suter's receptions. I frankly don't even have hard feelings at Tootoo's departure or his landing spot. To me, it seemed like something of a mutually agreed upon departure. Suter was a duplicative dick.

Toots will be cheered and will receive a video tribute. Toots would have stayed if he wasn't being scratched in the playoffs and down the stretch last year. If toots has played his normal 3rd/4th line role late last year, he would have resigned. so it was almost as if we traded him because we think Yip is better.

Suter will be boo'd and Mgmt would be crazy to give him a video tribute. It will be ugly.

Some will act if it is the second coming of the savior, for some unknown reason he was a fan favorite. He was give more chances than any player ever to put on a Preds sweater. His falling from favor for questioning his playing time in the press will assure he recieves no vidieo tribute. There is little to expected from a former 4th line player returning. There is a reason the guy was not offered a contract, he was overpaid on his last contract here and the Wings front office may have just signed the guy to muck it up with our team.

To all the fans of this player, how are you going to feel if he takes a run and hurts Fish, Erat or even Weber. Are you still going to blow those damn whistles???????????

Fans will welcome him with applause and cheers. The first time he takes a healthy run at Erat or Josi that will come to screeching halt. The whistles were a fun novelty while he was here. Have no idea why someone would continue to use them now that he's on the visitor's team. I'd think fans would have more sense than that.

I definitely don't hate the guy. Still have his jersey that I'm not ashamed of. Why did he have to the choose the Wings though...uhg.

Toots was fun for a lot of years and I'll never forget sitting behind his Dad at our first home playoff game, that was AWESOME!

That being said, times change and folks move on. I'll cheer for him his first shift and hope we do a video tribute but after that, you are an opponent...no worse, you are an enemy since you landed where you did.

Won't miss the whistles, think we can send a case to the Joe to annoy the fire out of their fans?

I'll say only slightly better than Suter. March 9th could get pretty ugly.

It was expected that he would be leaving... unexpected that it would be to the Wings.

Still, I think he gets a positive reception. I don't feel any ill will towards him, and I think his situation is helped by the Suter saga which makes Tootoo look a lot better by comparison.

I'll be happy to give him a cheer when he first returns... after that it's business as usual and he's a Red Wing, and we all know that the Red Wings Suck!!!

*Most* die-hards will boo, casual fans will either cheer or say "Wait, he isn't a Pred?".

Our row will cheer for, since his family and girls he was dating sat with us, and he always recognized us during the game.

4th line on the Wings, I doubt he'll be seeing Erat or Josi. But, I'm sure he'll take a run at Ellis/Goose/Yip though. There's a reason every other team hated him.

I won't boo him unless warranted, but please no tribute video.

i will boo him louder than suter...toots took less money if i remember correctly to go to a team that he will play less on. suter wanted to go to a team that he could be head guy, and wanted to be closer to home. makes sense to me. tootoo could have signed anywhere i am sure. he knew what he was doing, we wanted to flaunt it to management 6 times a year.

\everyone says that about everyone though. Last years playoffs I was told by a wings fan, after the zburg head smash, that the preds and their fans were classless... I laughed pretty hard.

Because we all know one player's actions represents an entire organization and their fans. No worries, ignorant people being ignorant. To this day I don't understand the 'USA' chant thing, or boo-ing the canadian national anthem. But that's another bag of worms.

Stopped liking Tootoo before last season was over, so I won't cheer. I doubt I boo, though. If McGrattan fights him I'll hope for an ass kicking.

I just can't imagine Tootoo accepting a fight with McGrattan. I just see McGrattan with that big smile on his face as Tootoo would receive the biggest smac down of his life. Just won't happen.

I have zero problem with Toots and where he landed.

It will be hilarious if they start Tootoo Whistling us.
