Monday was a busy day and I felt that I should put all the Monday news and clump it together. There were two big stories today. One is involving fan favorite, Jordin Tootoo and the other involves David Poile extending qualifying offers. Read all the news after the jump.

According to News1130 Sports in Vancouver, Kevin Epp, Jordin Tootoo's agent, confirms that Tootoo will hit the free agent market. Also, Epp went on to say there is no deal between the Jordin Tootoo party and the Nashville Predators. 

Reportedly, David Poile offered Tootoo a three year "sizable" deal in which he declined.

Yes, it is quite unfortunate that one of the most likeable guys in Nashville will be leaving the team. But, this is a business. Poile had to let him go. Smashville, if you are upset that Tootoo is leaving, get over it. Do you want to win a Stanley Cup? Then, we have to let people go who can't get us there.

Jordin Tootoo was upset at the end of the season because of the lack of playing time. Tootoo was scratched often, and didn't like it. The only reason he was scratched was because there were better players on the team than him. Not shocked at all that he leaves.

It is very unfortunate that Tootoo will not a Predator anymore. To be honest, he was my favorite player. I had a Tootoo jersey and shirt. Very sad day, but his play wasn't up to par.

Also today, David Poile sent ten restricted free agents a qualifying offer. Here is the list of players.

Atte Engren G Milwaukee Admirals (has signed with TPS of SM-liiga) Jeremy Smith G Milwaukee Admirals Jonathan Blum D Milwaukee Admirals Teemu Laakso D Milwaukee Admirals (has signed with Severstal Cherepovets of KHL) Shea Weber D Nashville Predators Colin Wilson C Nashville Predators Sergei Kostitsyn LW    Nashville Predators Jack Maclellan LW Nashville Predators Alexander Radulov        RW Nashville Predators (may be going to CSKA in KHL) Ryan Thang RW Milwaukee Admirals


Those who didn't receive it:

Jack Hillen D Nashville Predators Brodie Dupont         LW        Milwaukee Admirals             Ryan Flynn RW Milwaukee Admirals Zack Stortini RW         Milwaukee Admirals

Hillen, Dupont, Flynn and Stortini all become unrestricted free agents.
