Toots isn't 5'9". He's a good inch or two shorter than Scott Walker who is 5'9".

With the little guys, you can't always go with listed height. For some reason, they always get a pity inch or two.

I've seen Walker listed at 5'10 and 5'11, but never 5'9. Sullivan I've seen at 5'9. Tootoo I've seen listed 5'8 and 5'9.

All NHL-players have couple of cms added to their height, it's just the way it works.

I've stood next to Walker, he's not 5'10". I'm 5'10" almost on the dot and he's around an inch shorter than me. And Toot's, who I 'used to' hang out with from time to time in Nashville (major emphasis on used to), is a good bit shorter than me. I wouldn't be suprised if he was 5'7". But he's more likely 5'8".

Hockeydb.com has him at 5'9". And the ESPN 2k series had them there as well. But I'm not going off what they have listed. I'm just going off standing next to them.

Hehe whats up with that? As soon as a swedish player moves over pond he automatically "grows". Best example is Niklas Kronwall. Going from being 5'11" here to 6'1" in a couple of months. Unbelievable.

Pounds Iginla into a bloody pulp?
Would you like to come back to reality?

And what's with the Sutter and Phanuef avatars? You guys still miffed at our superiority, or do you just like making guys look like girls?

It's just our way of keeping the rivalry active during periods of inactivity. Plus, it's fun to tick Flames fans off on these boards. Many of them are very, very quick to fly off the handle and that's what it's all about

Yeah, I like having fun with you guys too - especially when it comes to Tootoo.

It really is a good rivalry, probably the best behind Edm & Van

What kind of trade value does he have?




(P.S. Barnaby is easily one of the guys in the NHL with the most guts)

Good point about Flames fans being so quick to fly off the handle.

You can't swing a dead cat in here without hitting a Flames fan who has a pic of Trotz all dolled up as an avatar.

Since being moved to a scoring line (with Upshall and Hrkac), Tootoo has 2 goals in his last 3 games games. This is the kind of icetime they were hoping Tootoo would get in Milwaukee.

Tootoo, quite simply is a no talent hack.

Great, he is a fast skater... too bad he has no clue where he has to be on the ice.

Great, he has a hard shot... too bad he can't hit the net, nor does he have 4 year to wind up with that slapshot of his.

His little game works... for now. Much like how Nash's little game worked, and Avery's... then something happens. Refs get wise to your game... then it's you moving into the penalty box over and over and over again.

Tyson Nash was the best agitator in the league... does anyone even care about him anymore? It's going to get to the point where Tootoo takes more penalties than he draws, and he doesn't have the offensive capabilities to back it up and keep giving him opportunities everywhere.

At least guys like Tucker and Barnaby can put up points... and they don't go after guys with 0 career fights like Klesla and Daindenault.

He's right though. Very limited upside and his act is going to get old very soon, someday he will get tuned up by opponent's enforcer or some other tougher guy and refs will be after him constantly making him a penalty-magnet.

Fan favourite, especially in Nashville with less knowledgeable fanbase but I don't see too bright of a future for him in the NHL.

Well on average they are less knowledgeable, if that's 'painting the entire fanbase' I guess I'm guilty as charged.

how do you figure "on average?"

going by this board, there are a lot of dumb leafs fans, dumb bruins fans...so...I guess those fanbases are less knowledgeable as well.

It must be because people in Nashville only heard of hockey 5 years ago.

Oh, no, that can't be it...there's been hockey in Nashville since the sixties, first in the CHL and then the ECHL. I guess you really were just making unfair generalizations.

Nashville and Carolina are the 'least' popular markets when hockey is concerned, neither area has long history in hockey, there are few rinks, few teams and hockey is not among the most popular sports there. How many NHL players come from Tennesee? How many universities with hockey programs there are in Tennesee?

Sorry but when I compare Nashville fans to other hockey markets, I simply can't think of many market with less knowledgeable fans on average. If you can, please tell us.
