To say that I have never liked Jordin TooToo would be an understatement.  However, I have great respect for the efforts he has taken to address his substance abuse issues, and wish him continued success.

Best wishes to him on his recovery.  Having said that, I hope he gets his ass handed to him on the ice with the next BS hit he gets away with.  So welcome back, Tootoo.
