Personally, I like Tootoo and respect him for what he has had to overcome. The guy has had a lot happen to him in his life; some of those things were his own doing, and some of those things were completely out of his control. He still works hard to do what he loves to do.

With that said, I will not mind seeing him go. The team is bringing in younger forwards with skills that Tootoo doesn't have. Yip is a cheaper option for a fourth liner who will drop the gloves (even if he isn't as exciting to watch in a fight as Tootoo), and who will eat ~10 minutes per night. Yip also won't complain about it.

And ******* it, I may be less of a Preds fan to some for saying this, but I cannot wait until I don't have to hear those ****ing Tootoo whistles any longer.
