Yeah, last night Poile was on the pre-game show and said that he was headed to Iowa tonight to watch the Admirals play. He was hoping to evaluate how Tootoo was doing, but...that he had been suspended for three games us two hours prior to the interview. He said that he was obviously disappointed, but that Jordin was still in the plans for the Predators for not only this season, but many seasons to come. He said that Jordin was a very important part of the team last season in the energy role that he filled, however with the lockout, change in rules, etc...Jordin needed to learn to round out his game at this level and play a more complete game. Poile and the organization believes it's best for him to do that now down in Milwaukee, primarily because of the depth the Predators have this season compared to last and that the energy role is already filled on this team and Jordin has the talent to do more.

Overall, sounds as though Jordin will be in Milwaukee for awhile after the suspension is over. Poile said he would meet with Tootoo tonight in Iowa and discuss what needs to be done to make it back, etc. With Stevenson and Hordichuk finishing their checks and scoring goals (!) and Gamache also up here to provide more "talent" when needed...Jordin should take the organization's advice and use this time to round out his game.
