Jordin Tootoo

Dorsett, who paid a stiff price for starting what he thought was going to be a fight with Red Wings defenseman Jonathan Ericsson a few moments after Filppula’s goal. The timing was poor – Dorsett and Ericsson squared off as the Jackets, unbeknownst to Dorsett, were flinging the puck around the Red Wings zone in a threatening fashion. And then, “Tootoo thought he’d come in swinging,” said Dorsett, who said the engagement wasn’t a proper fight and probably tainted his Gordie Howe hat trick.
“You think you’re fighting a 6-5 Ericsson and then Jordin Tootoo comes in and sucker punches you. But that’s just Jordin Tootoo. You expect those kind of things from him.”
The shot from Tootoo bloodied Dorsett’s nose, which appeared askew afterward (“It’s probably broken,” Dorsett said after the game.).
“(Ericsson) and I were backing away. Tootoo was just being himself, being the cheap player that he is and coming in swinging. In my eyes, that should be a suspension. Those are the type of things that they’re trying to get out of the game but he’s an irrelevant player, so it doesn’t even matter.”

Good article Tootooo is a dirty player.

Scott Howson fired, bout time

The Columbus Blue Jackets fired executive vice president and general manager Scott Howson on Tuesday.
Howson was named the second GM in the Blue Jackets' history on June 15, 2007.
"Scott Howson is a caring man who gave everything he had to the Columbus Blue Jackets over the past six years," said John Davidson, president of hockey operations. "This was a difficult decision, but one that I thought was in the best interest of moving our hockey club forward. I have enjoyed working with Scott and want to thank him for his service."
The Blue Jackets compiled a 173-190-59 record and made their lone playoff appearance in 2009 during Howson's tenure, but the club finished last in the NHL with 65 points last season and currently stands near the bottom of the Western Conference standings with a 4-7-2 record.
Howson also drew significant criticism for orchestrating last summer's trade that sent franchise cornerstone Rick Nash to the New York Rangers.
