I heard a lot of people saying Ruutu's hit on Jagr was "unnecessary" as well.

I dont have a problem with the hit on Jagr. was it unnecessary? probably was, but Ruutu didnt leave his feet and didnt lead with his elbow. he only got tossed out because the game was under international rules. if that hit happened in the NHL its 2 minutes tops. Its too bad Jagr got hurt but the hit was not a cheapshot. Jagr got caught with his head down. plain and simple.
