Comments in the YouTube video about how sensitive Miller is? Good on him for giving Tootoo a bit of a pounding.

in fairness, tootoo did kinda try to jump over miller but he could have totally avoided him altogether. props to miller though for pounding that weasel after the fact.

I'm sure it was accidental, I mean Tootoo doesn't have a douchey history or anything. :rolleyes:

But it's not like he could expect to somehow leap over a 6'2" standing Miller. Whether malicious or not, it was absolutely reckless. There was nowhere for him to go but into Miller.

If he had the puck and didn't leave his feet, thats a hockey play. He didn't have the puck, and he supermaned into him. That is intent to injure in my mind and Tootoo needs a suspension.

I have no idea why i got negged, it seems that people may not like the idea of driving the net with the puck as being a hockey play.

Tootoo is going to have to watch his back the next game with these two teams in it. His head is going to be on a stick.

Wow! This is Miller's first game back and he took a run at home. Whether he was intending to harm him or not, that's ridiculous. If he doesn't get suspended, there is a serious problem in the NHL discipline office.

Imagine if this was Crosby and he was on the board, got rid of the puck, and 2-3 seconds later, Totoo takes a run at him, Totoo is gone for at least 5 games. The NHL office did so well during the preseason but now, it's time for them to step up and set a precedence against this kind of stuff.

I'm not saying what he did was malicious or anything. He didn't have the puck and to me, it looked like he changed his direction to go right into Miller. But I might just be making that up because I am such a Miller supporter. League needs to steps up and take action.

Shanny is now in the position of suspending Tootoo and looking like he's letting star players off easy. Or not fining or suspending Tootoo at all and making it look like he is still okay with running goalies.

I saw the replay last night but they never said if there was a penalty on the play, was there? Tootoo is a dirt bag. Should he be suspended? Not in my mind. It is up to the Sabres to take care of the weasel with a good beat down. Hats off to Miller for giving him some shots but shame on the Sabres for not kicking his ass for it.

I think he already has the perception of playing favorites when it comes to star players, i don't expect anything different with a Shanaban on Tootoo after letting Lucic off free.

I know this question will generate some laughter but... You think Drew Miller can take Tootoo in a fight? He'll definitely look ridiculous especially with that gray hair. At the same time, if he can get the job done then why not? That his brother for Drew's sake.

Lucic's hit was worse imo because he had time to avoid it whereas Tootoo didn't.

Right, but Tootoo was the one who chose that angle. Where was he expecting to end up other than into Miller?

That's what I don't get from the initial Lucic hit. How didn't one of the Sabres immediately get out there and beat Lucic's ass? Granted, he's a solid fighter, but Gaustad in particular would be able to make him regret that hit.

The very next time they played Lucic took Gaustad to the wood shed, btw.

Tootoo could have avoided him by going behind the net or what smart players do. (Imfact saw Z do it last game) slam on the breaks and hug the goalie to soften then blow. That is what classy players do. Superman dive so your shoulder/elbow fright trains his head. That's what classless punks do.

Shanny cant suspend him after not suspending Lucic, which was a much more blatant run if you ask me.

If he does, we'll see the NHL is back to its old star player treatment bs as before
