Pretty much the exact same thing I was thinking. The loss of Tootoo would be huge IMO. Not because we traded a 3rd line winger, but because the guy is who most come to see. Especially those that aren't regular fans. When I brought two friends to a Predators game that weren't even hockey fans. Tootoo was instantly there fav. guy. After his first shift, They knew when he was out there the rest of the game. Now both are interested in more then just him, but he was the draw.
