Tootoo's shots looked effective to me. Now, none of them were major blows but he's lucky he even hit him. Bell turtled pretty badly after the jersey blinded him. He was wriggling like a fish for the better part of the fight. Tootoo did a great job landing a few punches. It's hard to hit a target that you can't really see and that is constantly moving up and down left and right forward and backwards.

If Bell's isn't an idiot, he'll leave well enough alone. He's had two bouts with Tootoo and both times Bell has had his jersey over his head before he blinked. And this time, Bell actually tried started the fight and tried to get Tootoo. Didn't really work out that way.
I'm going to give Bell enough credit that I think he would lose 10 fights to Tootoo and still come after him again. Fighting in hockey isn't only about winning. Not saying Tootoo didn't clearly win, but I don't think it will discourage Bell from fighting him again.
