These guys CAN be effective, but it's really not a big deal. A lot of times they're scratched and don't even play. If they were so damn effective, they would play 82GP.
I was big on the Scott bandwagon, but the reality is nobody wants to fight him so he's rendered super innefective.
On top of that he's too slow and too awkward to go out and initiate much and force the oppositions hand. The Bruins wanted no part of him the other week and i suspect nothing would change if we signed him this offseason.
