Chara won't fight him though. Scott actually fights compared to the rag-doll maneuver Chara employs.

You have got to be joking....Mitchell has been a useful player who has some speed. Do we really need another slow lumbering player like Scott? We already have a bunch of big slow forwards. Scott is lost out there and no one is going to fight him when they can fight a game smaller guy in Prust whenever they want. He will be a healthy scratch consistently very soon.

yea even at the start of the yr I was thinking Mitchell would be a usefull 13th F. I can't believe h has been in the lineup this much but as a 4th line C in the playoffs I am fine with it. Although Torts will move him up from time to time.

Scott is a big tough dude that will beat up the Debbies 2nite but he's nothing more than a spare once the playoffs start and if he does play it will be barely.

When Cally is back the lineup will get back to normal. No rush on that till he's 100% though.

I don't think Clarkson will be dropping the gloves in this one. I am sure his coach sat him down and told him that considering he is on pace for 30 goals, he needs to stay on the ice during these big games.

Exactly, Scott can't skate, and can't do much of anything, except take up space, these haters crack me up...

Sorry to say but I agree with you he is terrible

Only way I see Scott playing in the postseason is against Boston.

Also, I'm not anti-Mitchell, but I don't get all the love for this guy. It's mind-boggling, actually, but a +14 probably explains it. He chips in with a goal here or there, but he was also advertised as a shootout weapon which he clearly is not. He's not an elite skater and he's not a gifted "hands" guy. Not really a hitter, either. He's just.....kinda....there. Won't hurt you, though.

Role player who fits the system...he doesn't have to be a superstar he's on the 4th line...

Understood, but Scott plays a role, too, a potentially important role when they play Boston. For all the guff Scott took on these boards Sunday, realize that the only chippy play you saw from Boston's toughs was done by Lucic at the buzzer, knowing Scott wasn't on the ice. You didn't see or hear a peep from Chara, Thornton, or McQuaid.

And Lucic WILL have to answer to Scott for that McD hit next time they play.

If you actually watch Mitchell play, he does very little to make the team better. He holds onto the puck way too long and kills momentum by doing so. He gets a ton of chances, but pulls a Higgins most of the time. I'd rather have toughness in the playoffs.

I've never seen Boulton win a fight, Clarkson won't fight Pruster, he'll fight Boyle or Dubi ...Rupp takes out Janssen, Bickel ko's Boulton...

was Boulton not waived? Maybe he wasnt sent down

anywho Scott likely scratched 2nite with Cally hopefully back so that can end this thread of if Scott would play in the playoffs....if healthy no way he will

Wait what, no fighting in the playoffs?

Anyone seriously believes that there's not going to be a good amount of fighting in a series with us vs the flyers, bruins, or devils?

believe it or not the game has changed a lot since they won the cup. You cant have two slow guys in Rupp and Scott on the ice that often you will get killed in your own zone.

Actually Mitchell has been great this year imo, even on the fourth line role he throws his body regularly, clears the zone and plays hard. Idk what your watcing but hes been a good soldier and can be moved up and down the roster. Great pick up so far. you dont have to be Scott to be tough.

I wouldint throw him under the bus like that, hes very lumbering and big with not much speed but his hockey sense from what ive seen is not bad and his hands are ok, no i dont want him every night but on occassion he seems willing to drop them at any time an a usefull warrior.

I still think he will be a deterrent from say lucic or cooke running one of our guys. Do we play boston anymore in reg season because what he did to MCD is comical and i hope lucic meet scotts right hand

I just don't get it. Supposedly Scott was going to "intimidate" teams like Boston into not running Rangers or taking liberties. It still happened.

I just don't understand the role of a player like him who can't really take a regular shift. Rupp can, and so the toughness he brings is appreciated. But what exactly does Scott do? He didn't seem to do much against the Bruins...
