Now, don't get me wrong. Tootoo probably deserved to sit a game for losing his cool in response to Zetterberg stealing his stick, but sitting for most of the playoffs while you've worked hard for the team the whole year is bound to breed resentment, and that sort of resentment is not good for the team in the long run.
Toots, just like Wilson, is behind players who are simply doing better than him at the role he would fill. There are six potential slots for Wilson, all filled with better options right now. There are two potential slots for Toots, one filled by a clearly better option in Halishcuk ... the other taken by Yip who has shown more disciplined play and done better at working the boards than Toots.
