Sorry but he had plenty of choices there, he should get a suspension for that. Seemed to me like he kind of knew what he was going too. I loved the Sabres reaction. And the guy in the front row losing his shit and banging on the glass haha.

LOL i didn't notice the guy in the background. Well i have no problem with the reaction of the Sabres as i would expect the Preds to do the same, i don't think it should be a suspension. Lucic's hit to me was much worse and the only reason we are talking about this now.

Easily a suspension. Hopefully at least five. That's a vicious, unnecessary hit on a defenseless goalie

As much as it pains me to say it, and as much as I wish he had gotten something, the main difference is that Miller was in his crease Saturday and not on the Lucic hit. Tootoo did that on purpose and he has a record.

I don't see how the hit is viscous, Tootoo has tried to jump over goalies before. he did it last year in the playoffs on Emery, and if you watch from a side angle you can see he tried to superman over him. He will probably get 2 games because the league has to make a statement but to say that the hit is malicious is off base.

The reason i say Lucic's is worse is because of the way he hit Miller, he shouldered the guy in the head, Tootoo could of ran Miller and made things much worse.
