After the Nashville game on Friday I thought Jordan Tootoo should be suspended for his hit on Daniel Tjarqvist. I don't think it was a dirty hit, but I thought it was a dangerous hit. Sometimes pests, who try to hit as much as possible in a effort to agitate, don't let up at the right time and end up dangerously hitting someone. I don't think it's always "dirty" as in they aren't trying to hurt someone, but I think it's dangerous. Suspensions for those dangerous hits would go a long ways into players not trying hit someone in a prone position.
That being said if I think Tootoo deserves a 1-game suspension, and I do, then Cody McLeod does too. I don't think his hit on Bieksa was dirty last night, but I think it was dangerous.
