I know I'd be ticked off. Would you rather a guy not say anything and be complacent about it or have some passion and be like, I deserved to be out there? Was it the best move he made, taking it to the media, probably not but a guy who had alcohol issues in the past, cleaning himself up and then being sat for guys who were out drinking might touch a nerve. Just saying.
Tootoo got to play thanks to the Radulov and Kostitsyn suspensions. They messed up in Phoenix and Toots got two games in that series as a result.

He played one game in the first round of the 2012 playoffs getting 6:04 of ice time. Eerily similar to what he got as a Wing in the post season ... one first round game 6:24 TOI in 2013.
