Bootland sent back to Grand Rapids

It's bad news for the lady fans in Detroit but good news for Darryl's large female fanclub in GR, as long as he clears waivers. Booter may have literally fought his way out of a roster spot, because the Wings could obviously use a physical presence. However, they don't necessarily need a fighter in today's NHL. Update (5:49 AM): Um, I see now that Bootland did, in fact, clear waivers, in case you were worried. Update (3:53 PM): Joe Conklin of The Grand Rapids Press has more on Bootland here.

Just so you know, there's a lot more to Bootland than his looks. He's a great hockey player. He fights, he'll go into a corner and dig a puck out, he scores, he's pretty good on defense. He was seventh in scoring on the Griffins last season- 27-29-56 - plus 390 penalty minutes. I'm quite please he'll be back in GR, because the Griffins really need him.

I did not mean to imply that Bootland is all looks and no ability. I was trying to be a little humorous and apparently failed brutally.

I know he's a quality player. His physical play would be valuble to the Wings However, his penchant for fighting is not necessarily a plus in the NHL today.

In any case, the Wings are lucky he cleared waivers and will need him themselves at times this year, I'm sure.
