I can assure you that I saw Tootoo turtle (or run or hide behind linesmen) with GREAT FREQUENCY over the years in MJ.
I'm sure that nearly everyone on here that saw him play has a story or two of him running someone from 40ft into the boards from behind with a flying leap... And then looking for the linesmen or dropping to the ice. He was FAMOUS for it.
Sure he fought. He HAD to. He was that dirty. But, he definately didn't ALWAYS answer the bell.
