Don't watch him too much do you? Still bitter over that Sakic hit? The kid, while not Forsberg, is incredibly talented for the role he plays. He has good puck skills, good vision, and great speed and a great shot. I'm not sure what player you think you are watching (Sean Avery maybe?) but to say Tootoo has no puckhandling ability is off-base. Of course, maybe you're so use to watching Forsberg, Sakic, Selanne, and Kariya that someone who isn't in their league has no ability
