Happy Birthday, Jordin Tootoo

Today marks the 29th birthday for perhaps the most popular Nashville Predator of them all, Jordin Tootoo. The scrappers are always fan favorites, but Tootoo's long but steady rise to become an NHL regular, combined with his year-plus of sobriety make for the type of long-term career arch that earns him a permanent spot in the pantheon of Smashville heroes.

He's already set new highs for assists and total points in a season, which makes for perfect timing considering the fact that he's set for unrestricted free agency this summer. After making $1.35 million this year, how high should his sights be set for his next contract?

What better way to end a 7-game scoreless streak than with a big game on his birthday?
