Scott is one of the best goons in the NHL. Tarnasky is decent, but not THAT good.

Honestly, if the Sabres have that many injuries that Tarnasky gets called, they're in a hole of epic proportions.
I agree McCormick is clearly better than Tarnasky for situations where you want a checking forward who can fight rather than the pure goon of John Scott. But with McCormick out I think Tarnasky would be the most logical guy to fill his role. Certainly slightly more offensive potential than John Scott, but still grittier than Ellis.
