08:33 AM ET 11.10 | Only a few days removed from calling out Jordin Tootoo, Ryan Getzlaf has in turn been called out by Tootoo's head coach. In defending Tootoo, Coach Barry Trotz took a slight shot at Anaheim and how the Ducks play, as well as how Getzlaf called out Tootoo. "They have some guys who aren't exactly lily-white, some of their tough guys," Trotz said. "You watch them behind the play when the ref's not looking, they do a lot of (stuff). That's just whining to me. Go on the ice, play and if you have a problem with someone, take care of it. Don't go through the paper. That's all." Anyway, so this should be a fun one [Thursday] ... as it always is with these two teams.

Kinda wish the old honor code was still in play- Coaches only talk to and about their own guys.

Thanks Phantom.

It's about respect for those that truly deserve it.

Lily -white is right. Getzlaf and his lily-white team mates had a chance to do something about it last night. They didn't and got their Tootoos handed to them by the Preds.

I agree. Coaches should be talking about other coaches and their own players. Let the players take care of their own battles on the ice.

Dr. Zaius has spoken...

It will take the GM s to get this back to where it should be Cromster

I think if they talk about whomever the frig they want to talk about it makes it more interesting.

I like what Trotz said. Dont **** about it, drop the mits. If you dont like what Tootoo does, man up and do something about it.

yeah like it too which begs the question why does a hockey-loving guy have a toothy avatar like a beaver. A jack o'lantern would be a bit more sport appropriate
