Bootland gets his first career NHL goal versus the Edmonton Oilers.  Bootland adds a nice element to the Detroit Red Wings as an agitater.  Anyone ever seen him play in Grand Rapids?

The goal was awesome, but I wonder if all of the fights he got in helped or hurt his chances of making the team on a regular basis. It can't really hurt because McCarty can't last a whole lot longer and this kid may be an impovement over his predacessor(sp). I think one of the Wing's biggest mistakes was trading away Avery. He had a very high potential potential sticker. Oh well.

It's easy for fans to like the guys like Bootland and Avery.  I guess if you have to get rid of someone though, I'd rather see Avery go than someone else.  Where did he go to?  He'd probably be better off on a younger team anyway as he'll likely get more playing time and not be a guy who barely sees the ice.

Bootland's goal was good.  I think that most coaches and teams encourage the fighting and penalties as long as the person can draw MATCHING penalties.  Two guys fighting and getting 5 each is a wash.  Now if a guy gets an instigator penalty.... I'd guess the coaches would be p*ssed!
