08:20 AM ET 10.31 | After this weekend's Ducks-Predators game, Ryan Getzlaf didn't much care about the particular details that make Jordin Tootoo an interesting character in the NHL. The Predators' pest was involved in two clear penalties done against him in the third period, a slashing call on Corey Perry and a high stick to his nose by Sheldon Brookbank. Getzlaf said the whistles themselves were correct but lobbed pointed criticism toward Tootoo's direction at what he felt was excessive embellishing by the winger. ... "I'm tired of watching Jordin Tootoo out there, a guy who runs around and hits and does everything else but the first little slash, he's laying on the ice and he's out the next shift. It's embarrassing and I'm sick of it."

Well, Ryan. The way I see it, Jordin is 5' 9" and 199 lbs. You are 6' 4" and 221 lbs. It seems to me you have a BIG advantage over him. Why don't you do something about it? Are you afraid?

Get in the Halloween spirit and put the damn Tootoo on Getzlaf!

An even scarier thought: Getzlaf should beat the Tootoo out of Jordin!

Sorry, but that is how he made it into the league...Bouncing around the ice like a pinball, running into everything and everyone.

If he's sick and tired of Tootoo, can't imagine how he feels about Corey Perry and the rest of his team, known for diving, spearing, cheap shots, and other hockey goonery......

Good Lord...............I'm headed for Mr. Roger's neighborhood. Canuck breaks bad again! Although, maybe it's not a bad idea?

Perhaps Getzlaf should just click his heels 3 times to close the issue and send him home.
