Does that mean he doesn't like the fighting or he'd just rather have Tootoo playing instead of sitting in the box and risking injury?
Maybe because fights at the start of the game are really REALLY dumb and should result in a 10 minute misconduct?
Or that Jordin isn't being paid $1.9 MM a year to awkwardly punch guys and sit on a bench in a glass box?
His grit and chippy nature are good, but he should use it to play actual hockey: check guys, get under their skin, the occasional fight when on-ice action dictates it. Tootoo has been involved in two opening draw fights and we are only six games in. He was a thirty point guy last year and this year he is trying to be the world's smallest goon.
