Debate: Tootoo hit on Miller

If you haven’t seen the hit from Saturday’s game, you definitely need to take a look. Jordin Tootoo ran Ryan Miller and made little or no effort to avoid contact.

“I was driving the net and I got a little shove from behind,” Tootoo said. “That’s the last thing I want to do is run the goalie over and put my team down. Clearly I tried to jump out of the way. There was no intent to charge at him.”

Take a look:

Sorry, there are no polls available at the moment.

Tootoo does have history with suspensions. He received one a few years back, in 2007, for sucker punching Stephane Robidas, who suffered a concussion. Here’s a look at it:

I founded Buffalo Hockey Central in 2008 and have poured hours and hours into this site. Luckily, we have a great team of writers and designers who have helped keep this up and running despite a ton of out-of-pocket costs. We do this because we enjoy it, and we're desperate to see the Sabres win the Cup someday, but they have to make the playoffs first.
