My beef with fighting and it is with this one. Is that somebody wanted a fight but the fight wasn't a must.

You make Scott earn the fight or anyone else for that matter. Due to something that happened last year, a player new to the team this year tries to make amends.

Everybody sees Scott's size, you don't neutralize him in a fight. You do that by making him commit errors. Dump the puck in his corner every single time and every single time you have the puck. You cause him to stay off the ice.

I thought hockey was a mind game too. On the Bruins' brass that are not intelligent enough to know this.

Shawn has 3 times as many games as Scott and also has 5+ years on him too. That means something and when you factor in the minutes played per game, you don't need a crystal ball to figure out the rest.

I like Shawn Thornton, I think he has class and didn't need this.

When the Sabres signed Scott I didn't see teams making it a valued signing. Particularly not the Bruins.

You got to play Scott against the Sabres not against you.
