He does that hit a lot. He's knocked Poapst and Martinek out for atleast a shift with similar hits. Though, Martinek was coming from behind the net. In the Poapst hit, Tootoo skates around the net to hit him. But, rest assured, he has plenty of other hits. He crunched Klesla and Sakic on serious hits where he just get a head of steam and plowed them against the boards at the blueline or deeper. They may wise up to the behind the net thing, but he's got plenty else in his arsenal.
