There are two things you need to grasp:
1) No one is claiming Tootoo is going to be a huge scorer in the NHL.
2) No one is claiming points in the CHL translate to points in the NHL.
What some people are claiming is that Tootoo does have *some* skill. And he undoubteably has the skill to make his presence felt. I'm sure he's close to the top, if not the top, of # of penalty minutes drawn.
