Nashville’s Jordin Tootoo is pretty big time.
The Times did a big piece on him Saturday.
Tootoo really seems to have changed the chemistry of the Predators. They’re still awful, but now they’re feisty (some might say violent) as hell. They’re like something out of SLAPSHOT.
In fact, he’s a bit out of control.
Saturday night he gave a concussion to the very study Radek Martinek, via a flying (and illegal) check.
Sure it’s nasty, but it’s also effective. He shut down the Islanders with that hit.
