I tend to agree with you that Reaves is basically a goon and will never be much more, and probably approached Toots with the intention of fighting. But the video evidence is pretty clear that Toots dropped and punched before the "fight" could actually start, and Reaves could show that he wanted to be a participant by dropping his gloves.

Until Reaves drops his gloves, he's merely a teammate that took exception of Toots checking his pal and was confronting Toots about it.

Trotz said as much after the game when he said he wouldn't be surprised if Toots gets a phone call from Toronto.
