I don't really like the guy on the ice but if he recognized that he had or has a problem and is getting help for it, more power to him, especially if he's not being forced kicking and screaming to do so.

The reason I say blow, is the intensity and speed at which he plays the game and the complete "invincible" way he acts on the ice, not to mention the fact that nothing seems to hurt him... I wouldn't be surprised at all if it was blow...

Really don't like him, but anyone in this situation deserves support. Good for him for recognizing a problem and attempting to control it. Good luck to him.

if it is blow I guarantee is he isn't playing on it. Playing coked out is a little too hard. You shake when you skate, not many players can play on coke. I'm guessing it is booze as well.

all the best to Tootoo, love to hate him but I'd be stoked if he was a Wing.

I'll add to the chorus of "I don't care for him on the ice, but..." crowd.

I recall that his brother's problems led to his suicide (Tootoo wears his brother's number), so hope his treatment goes well. We also don't know which part of the program (substance vs. behavioral) that he's got issues with.

Whether it's booze, drugs, or some other problem, it's going to be twice as hard to deal both with the problem and the fact that it's public knowledge.

Best wishes to him on his immediate recovery and sustaining his recovery.

Then, of course, I'll be back to cheering against him when he's on the ice.

I don't care what you all say, I still hate him. He is getting help which is fine enough for him, but I hope he never hits the ice again.

HAHAHAHA! Yeah that's what I meant. <_<

Though he does seem like the kind of trash that would use Meth.

I hate the little bastard on the ice. He's a dirty player and a blemish on the league. I don't wish ill will upon him personally, but honestly he will not be missed by me during his time in rehab. Ideally he'd get clean and hang up the skates.

He's part Inuit, isn't he? I'm guessing he has a genetic and cultural tendency towards substance abuse.

Thats what I came in here to say. Being from Nunavut he came from a lot of alcohol problems which also leads to a lot of depression and suicide in that part of the country. My guess is alcohol.

Also you guys can hate him all you want but coming from what he came from and becoming a millionaire while dealing with his brother terrance's suicide I can respect. But yeah I know this is LGW so if anyone ever touches a red wing it is automatic hate on and off the ice... :rolleyes:

It isn't because he touched a Wing, but because he is a s***-stain on the sheet that is the NHL.
