Tootoo status?

I know the team said they would have no comment, and there is no timetable for his return, but I'm just wondering what everyone's expectations are for his return.

He checked into rehab just after Christmas, which was about 3 weeks ago. How long is a typical rehab? Is it 4 weeks, 8 weeks, more? I know several people who have gone to rehab, but there hasn't seems to be differing programs of different periods of time.

Wish him the best, because it is a lifelong fight.

I'm not a fan of TooToo and those train whistles are really annoying. Having said that I have to give him SOME credit for doing what he is doing. Takes a big man to admit that he has a problem and to fix it. Not really sure what to think on when he'll return...I guess that depends on his progress and what the team see's fit.

I read something (OTF maybe?) that listed typical times for this type of thing and the average was about 2 months. I wouldn't count on it because every case is different, but 8 weeks seemed to be an average.

Update: Found the link. http://www.ontheforecheck.com/2010/1...-abuse-program

I wish Jordin well, but we're a better team without him in the lineup. I'm not sure where Sullivan or Svatos slot back in, at the moment...I can't imagine who'd come out for Tootoo.

I agree to a point. I do think we miss his "spark of energy" sometimes though.

I would be surprised to see him back before March 1, if he does at all this year

I'd rather he takes all the time in the world he needs.

I completely agree. But I imagine that soon after leaving rehab the counselors would advise him to get back into his daily routine, as soon as possible, and not go park it on the couch all day. So I would assume that as soon as he leaves, he rejoins the team/starts conditioning, and we'd see him on the ice within a week or so of completing rehab.

I was just more or less wondering how long rehab is expected to last.

rehab and recovery arent like getting over a broken bone or even a concussion. there isnt a true "end" to the proces. First he'll get out of the inpatient facility, then get back in shape physically, but even then he'll have to figure out of he can handle the life of a pro athlete and the temptations that accompany it.

I wont be at all surprised if Toots is out the rest of this season.

I'm with Volde. I would be surprised to see him back this season.

It is so dependent on his progress and whatever kind of treatment program he is under.And I imagine there are some subtle differences because it is a "nhl/nhlpa" program. I would expect that there are milestones there because of that, that may not be there in an "ordinary" rehab stint.

Just a guess, no knowledge...... but I would imagine he would go from just inpatient to outpatient with a lot of extensive "meetings" and "therapy."

It's a hard road. I hope he gets the best start to it that he can.

Go Toots.

I would also specualte that this decision involves more than whether or not he thinks he is ready. I am sure he would be say he is ready now if you asked him. But he has two guys looking out for his best interests even more than himself in his father and Trotz. I think when those two decide he is ready, is when he will be ready. Tootoo is a grown man yes, but your father and what I would think would be a father-like figure will have an incredible amount of influence in his immediate playing future.

The human brain is the hardest thing to fix both physiologically and mentally. What Jordin has is a condition in a field which is still young in the terms of age of healing. If you look at the history of medicine you could say that we are coming out of the dark ages but psychology and neurology I still believe are in the stone ages.

Jordin will get better when he gets better and hopefully 100% better.
