Jordin Tootoo has been a fan favorite since he made his debut with the Predators during the 2003-04 season.
But if he is to remain with Nashville, he will need to seriously step up his game, the team’s decision-makers said….
“I just want to see some improvement,” Coach Barry Trotz said. “He took a step back last year in terms of his overall play. I know he can step forward again. I was hoping last year he would take another step forward because the year before he took a step forward.”
Tootoo poses an interesting challenge for Trotz and General Manager David Poile. This is a contract year for Tootoo, who is scheduled to make $975,000 this season. It is a steep price for someone who plays on the third or fourth lines and doesn’t produce many points
