Except when Tootoo is moved up a line and Halischuk is the 4th line winger.

I know it is almost blasphemy to suggest, but, Tootoo can be moved. I doubt this is the time he gets traded, but, he is portable for the right return. We've all waited for him to evolve beyond a wrecking ball on skates, and he does show flashes of his junior and AHL level offensive ability ... but only flashes. For 1.35mil this year we need to see his game progress further.
