I can't remember him missing any games due to injury.
Here is an example of what is wrong with the NHL. A gifted offensive player is not even given a chance and a nothing like Tootoo is glorified.
I wouldn't call Tootoo a "nothing", per se. However, I agree in that fact that he should maybe go down to Milwaukee some to work on his offensive ability. Right now he is getting little ice time but does what he needs to do...that being to get under the other team's skin, draw penalties, and for checking. I think he will develop more offensively and defensively later on. Def. a good prospect.
Anyway, Tootoo is not the issue at hand. I really hope you're right about Gamache. I think I remember reading somewhere that in the QMJHL's playoffs (I think that was the league) that he beat Mario Lemiux's record for points.
