Don't be surprised if this is the last season where Tootoo plays any sort of noticeable role on an NHL team. He has the potential to be a useful player. Here's hoping the NHL does what Poile and Trotz never could and whip him into a real hockey player.
Heh, it seems that Tootoo's punch on Robidas may have hurt Tootoo more than Robidas.
