I am not holding my breath for anything better then a player on a 1 year deal from Bowman.
John Scott is a bum, but he's great at fights. Does being great at one thing make him any less of a bum? No, it doesn't. Obviously Konopka is a better hockey player than Scott - everyone outside the ECHL is - but he's still a bum when it comes to actually playing hockey and if he loses the faceoff, you're in trouble. Again, get someone better than merely a 4th liner.
