To say something like "clearly you are wrong" when at best, the hit is open to interpretation and many others share a different opinion than yours is pretty silly if you ask me.
I suppose I should say Cleary you are wrong, I have watched the hit on tivo again and again and he IS in the air when he makes contact. But, that would be childish. I will say that I have watched the hit several times on tivo and to me, in my opinion, from what I can see, the way it looks to me, from this agle, on my tele, etc etc etc, he *appears* to have left his feet prior to making contact.
All of that aside, I do think that tootoo, if indeed guilty of a cheap hit in *any* instance, should be dealt with on the ice for it. Any punishment that the league hands out is only going to be useless and secondary and would have little to no effect on his style of play.
Of course, i like tootoo and hope he continues to play with this edge for his entire career. So, "clearly" we have differing opinions, no more, no less.
