Former Avalanche Enforcer Scott Parker on MHH

This is an exclusive that MHH is doing on Scott Parker, part one of two I believe. Check it out it's a very raw story and a fun read.

Oh it stands for Mile High Hockey, I assumed when you said he was on MHH that he was having some sort of drug addiction.

Would never think that guy was a hockey player less than a decade ago by looking at him.

Both parts were very interesting.

Especially his views on his previous coaches and moore/bertuzzi.

Scary, scary dude lol.

Anyone remember why he was traded in the 1st place? Money? Lack of role? If I remember correctly they added worrell shortly after they traded parks to sj.

Not gonna lie, while that interview was very insightful I now see Parker as a more eloquent Cam Jensen. I've played hockey with many of his types and could stand very few of them outside of the rink.

Strange comments about Moore & Bertuzzi. Scary comments about head injuries and what they can do to you.

We traded him to San Jose for a 5th round pick, and then got him back for a 6th round pick by the way. And that 6th round pick seems to have yielded Jonas Holos. How we got it back I don't know though.

Wow... crazy to hear how many concussions the Sheriff has had... about 20? And he's got a bruised brain stem.

Just goes to show you how brutal hockey can be and what the enforcers go through physically just to stay in the NHL. He makes Hartley sound like a total d*ck too... lol

Awesome tattoos though!

I'm really sad to hear how bad he's health wise. He was a great guy for the Avs.

Great interview.

Quote:
When Jack Johnson hit Smitty [Ryan Smyth] into the turnbuckle, I looked right at Coach Q like, "Can I go, can I go?!". And he's like, "go where?". And I said, "go after that mother****er". And he said, "no, no, no". I should have just went, but you obviously don't do that or I would have been done right there.

Now if it's warranted, like if somebody goes after your skill player and takes their knee out and their MCL is toast and the stretcher comes out - it might be time to send a message. You might have to leave blood on the ice. At times, I would take two fingers and jam them down people's throats. I would do anything I had to to send a message: You don't **** with my team.
I love this guy. What a psycho.

Pretty retarded comments about Bertuzzi though. He's got more sympathy for a guy that ended someones career with a sucker punch that gave him post concussion for life probably, then for Moore because he thinks he thought he was better than people because he went to Harvard (which I never got that impression at all from interviews)? Which "one mistake" is worse?

I wouldn't be surprised if that is just Parker's neanderthal self consciousness. Anyone that can articulate a sentence, his immediate thought is, "what you think you're better than me? I'll kick ***ing your ass."

So I guess Steve Moore wasn't the most popular guy in the locker room.

He's a psycho, but that's why he's among my top 5 Avs of all-time.

Good read.

There's a reason we had a ridiculously lopsided win/loss ratio with him in the lineup.

Perfect example of the idiot mentality.

I like how Moore going to Harvard is somehow related to if he deserved to have his neck broken.

He does, I liked before the interview but he sounds like douch bag.

Gotta kick at the mention of the Ramos incident.

To me that means he didn't/doesn't like Steve Moore. He never said he deserved to have his neck broken. He even said Bertuzzi went overboard.

Parker comes off as a POS because he is a POS. That's why I love the guy.

Parker has always been only about a half step out of the trailer park, so none of this is all that surprising.

The best thing about this interview was that it was REAL! Parker didn't sugar coat anything, which means the guys at MHH told him to make it was raw as he wanted... in other words, let Parker be himself.

The guy beat the heck out of other enforcers in the league for a living... so I am not surprised by his mentality. I was a little surprised to see him come to Bertuzzi's defense. That was very interested and it gave a little insight into the locker room... maybe Moore wasn't the most popular guy on the team? Sure, it doesn't right the wrongs Bertuzzi did, but Parker was kind of saying "Hey, I might've flipped my lid too".

Fantastic read. Lots of controversial points that I don't really want to pick on now, but I guess that's what I'd expect from more of a fringe NHLer, they're going to have a different way of looking at things. Shame I never got to see SP play really, though, especially watching a year and a half of David Koci

As an aside, he kinda looks like Opie from SOA, with the touque on.

I'm glad we finally got to the bottom of that mysterious situation when he retired. Only took five years.

By the way, I get the feeling Parker and Tim Thomas would get along well. Maybe he'll need a trim when he comes to Colorado.
