Hockey fighting is something that extremely hard- you can't leg sweep or put in a choke hold like in judo (or you could but the suspension would be measured in years not games
I'm not sure how good a fighter Scott is since I don't have a large sample, but no matter who he fought be it vintage Stan Jonathan or Zedeno Chara you'd feel pretty good if you got him in a draft
overall though i'd rather see him on the ice and exploit him
as for Thornton- very tough job, very tough guy, great technical fighter but in the end when you are a gun fighter you eventually end up looking up at the moon; I remember the fights that Dave Schultz and Clarke Gillies go it that got their brains bashed in (Byers believe it or not was the Gillies one, when Gillies was at the end of the line with the Sabres of all teams
The only bone I have to pick is Thornton dropping the gloves in the first place with Scott, yes I know that's ironic considering this thread was about wanting him to fight more. I would have had Macdermid drop the gloves, no one would care if he was concussed. Now the Bruins lost a man who plays regular minutes because he fought a guy who played a total of 4 minutes tonight.
