"For the sake of the game, they oughta throw him in San Quentin.
He is a criminal element!The worst goon in hockey today.
Oh, yeah. Real cement-head." - player/coach Reg Dunlop
That quote describes nobody in the NHL better than Nashville's Jordin Tootoo - who is nothing more than a criminal element. He seems to possess no actual hockey skills other than the ability to take 12-step runs at other players. Need proof? Here's a clip from a game last week against Phoenix:
It's because of talentless nobodies like Tootoo that players get clotheslined - like Craig Weller did to Tootoo in the clip. And while I feel like it's a double standard for me to be praising Weller for clocking Tootoo - I am doing just that. Anybody else find it hilarious that Tootoo runs around trying to kill guys but as soon as he gets hit he's lying on the ice like someone shot him. For the sake of the game they oughta throw him in San Quentin.
This hit even made CBC's Kelly Hrudey stand up and say Tootoo is a "disgrace" and "should be out of the game." Try to find the actual quotes of what Hrudey said - I dare you. You know the NHL is in bad shape when you can't even find controversial quotes about it on the Internet.
