With Nashville playing so well without Tootoo in the line-up, do you think that it'll be tough for him to make it back into the line-up?
Well, the Predators won 7-3 last time he played (Wednesday).
I think Tootoo adds a lot to the team. There are parts of me that want to see him in Milwaukee advancing his offensive skills, but he is an excellent NHL pest right now. I have been amazed at how smart he is on the ice. He is a MASTER at drawing penalties. I was expecting to see his temper get out of hand, but he knows precisely when to walk away. It would not surprise me at all if he leads the league in penatlies drawn. He gets under everybodys' skin and takes their focus away from the game. While guys like Laraque are busy fighting other NHL enforcers, Tootoo is picking fights with guys like Iginlia.
So yes, I think he will be back in the linuep when healthy.
