TSN's Darren Dreger brings us a bit of a stunner:

To borrow a pro wrestling phrase, is this Jordin Tootoo's way of turning heel on Nashville? I don't think any of us saw him playing for Detroit...

It will be very interesting to see how well Tootoo fits into the Red Wings game plan. He certainly brings a hard style of play that Mike Babcock enjoys, but his penchant for baffling giveaways is decidedly un-Detroit-like.

As a Predators fan, however, how will you react to seeing Toots come into Bridgestone Arena three times a season wearing the enemy red & white?
