Nothing unusual.

Probert and McCarty were known to have drinking problems of their own.

There's probably a lot more untreated cases around the NHL that we never hear about.

Scott Parker struck me as a guy that had a problem.

Does that look like a man with problems?
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

I remember watching an interview after one of the Avs games a few years back and he was just out of it. Not sure what it was, hell, could've been nothing :P for whatever reason, he made me wonder.

Wouldn't be one of my favorites. Mostly because I'd have to kill myself in embarrassment the first time a Detroit fan blew a train whistle.


Yes but..at times we've had plastic octupi, pink rally towels and imo the worst was when the fans cheered louder all game for the m n m's races on the scoreclock than they did during the game.

As for addictions Probert, Kocur, Klima, Kennedy, McCarty and others. I wish him well.

Gaetz was another one. I wonder how Brian McGrattan is doing. He went into the program a few years back, so he must be doing alright..

My bet that it's his addiction to smoking poles.

When I use to live in Nashville, Tootoo was always in the clubs and drank ALOT! He was always s*** faced drunk. He also had a serious stalking problem. There were many girls that stated he would wait outside their house and watch them, as well as simply not leave them alone. Toot's dated one of the trending country singers (can't remember her name because I hate country music) but she stated that Toot's stalked her as well after they broke up.

Toot's has some serious issues, but although we all hate him on the ice, its nice to see that he realizes he has a problem and wants to fix it. Best of luck!

From TSN:

Nashville forward Jordin Tootoo has been cleared to return to practice with the Predators more than a month after entering the NHL's substance abuse program.

Good news... I can't stand Tootoo, but wish him no harm. Glad he got better, and good on the Preds and NHL for standing up for him and with him as he tries to right the ship. Hope he learned something from this and makes the most of a second chance not everyone gets in life.

Now, I hope the Wings beat the Preds' butts on 4/2, because I plan to be there. :lol:

Good news for Toots, hopefully he is better, and can continue to live his life in a safe and healthy manner. I know he is pretty hated around these parts, but I'm one of the few that doesn't mind him. He plays on the edge and is incredibly gritty, and also has some hockey talent.

Does he? Or was this just mandatory rehab forced onto him by the team or the league?

I'm betting it was mandatory and forced on him, especially with the short amount of time he was in rehab for.

You could be right. But I am hoping he recognized an opportunity to get back on track and not waste his career and life. Let's hope so! :thumbup:

Yeah one month is not long at all for rehabilitation of a drug of any kind. I'm guessing he showed up to practice drunk one too many times, the team forced him to do a month of rehab and that's that.

I read somewhere Toots has voluntarily (read as: not court ordered) admitted himself into the NHL-NHLPA behavioral health program. I think it was alcohol, cause he also got DUI sometime I thought (or was that his brother?).
Well wish him best of health.

Hope he took the time to better himself.

Wish he took more time because Nashville is too close for comfort in the standings... :ph34r:

In all serious though...Hate the guy on the ice...Don't know anything about him off it. Wish him the best in his life.

One month doesn't sound like enough time to sober up or dry out, so I'm not convinced this will last very long. That said, I hope it does.

I guess we'll have to wait and see who's career he ends first, his own from drinking (or whatever drug he's doing), or another players with one of his cheapshots.
