In the two games against Dallas - a team notorious for extra curricular activity - none of our star players got abused. Deterence is like an insurance policy - complain about the cost when you don't need it but it's sure nice to have when you do.

Besides - Scott took who's position in the lineup - Olesz? Big whoop! I won't whine if Scott get's replaced on the 23-man roster, but to say he adds nothing is to ignore the potentiality of what could happen to our star players if he wasn't there.
Its easy to say scott makes no difference when we aren't getting gooned up, but lets not forget the first few games of the 'nucks series last year.
