I was wrong. I didn't think that Scott would be in the lineup that much this season.
Especially at a home game when the the opposition didn't dress the likes of Jody Shelley or Tom Sestito.

Gerbe, Leino, and McCormick are injured. There's really no one to play over Scott other than dressing 7 defensemen, so I don't think we can read into this.

Did he lose his first NHL fight last night?

I believe he did. Orr really hung in there and was swinging. I'm still not sure why Scott went down though. I think he slipped.

I was impressed by Orr though.

He slipped, which is why he was laughing so hard when he came up.

Orr never really landed anything anyways.

Scott didn't miss anything or slip. He hit Orr but was nailed at the same time by a body shot that dropped him to his knees.

Enough for the giant to drop to his knees so I imagine it must have hurt. Oh yeah, Orr also connected with a right to Scott's chops at the beginning of the fight. So both guys connected with some punches. Watch the fight again.

Do yourselves a favor and don't open the Scott/Orr thread on the hf fights forum and don't look at any of the comments on hockeyfights for this tilt. You'd think that this was a landslid victory over someone that has been pulling some kind of scam.

My take: Orr got a good shot in early, Scott looked to be taking over, a combination of taking a swing and receiving a shot brought Scott to one knee, Orr took advantage and threw a couple while Scott was down. There isn't a good camera angle on this devastating body shot, but it's clear that Orr makes contact before Scott goes to one knee.

Personally, I think that Orr had this one. I also think that it was very close and I hope that we more action between these two.

Orr landed the better punches, and his body shot dropped Scott to his knees.

Not impressed with the big guy's first bout as a Sabre.

You know what was actually important?

2-1 Buffalo.

Having Scott on this team makes a huge difference. It means that guys like Kaleta, McCormick, RR, Ott, Foligno don't have to worry about the heavyweights on the other teams. They can play their games and know that someone has their back.

Good on Orr for catching him with a body blow but as Nick Kypreos stated, "Scott is the heavyweight champ of the league." Having him lets a whole lot of other players play a little bit bigger and a little tougher than they did last year.

Awesome. Doesn't have anything to do with what we were talking about though. Carry on.

Scott looked out of sorts last night and Orr has always done well against bigger fighters. There's no way to really train or prep for a fight during a lockout, so I'm hoping it's a bit of rust. With that said, no fighter in the NHL is ever undefeated. Let's just look at Orr. He once rocked the giant Boogaard, and yet he has also been knocked silly by the smaller Engelland. Long story short...not much to glean from one 40-second battle.

Hopefully he can have a tuneup or two with Westgarth because he's going to have a full fight card against Boston.

No he isnt as he's never beaten Mcgrattan, and the first legit heavy he fights he gets dropped by. Scott will always be tough to beat but he's no Boogaard for a guy his size.

Why do you want him to spot pick against the Bruins 4th best fighter?

Is Parros no longer a legit heavyweight?

Yeah, also would be nice to get McCormick back in the line-up before then too..

Lucic and Chara aren't going to even entertain the thought of fighting him, so that leaves Thornton or Mcquaid.... If he's in the line-up theres a good chance he will find a dance party just hope hes ready....

Not exactly one of the best. Neither is Westy.

The thing is, if it goes the other way in the rematch, you might be henceforth addressing him as Colton Orrmagehrd

In other words "yes"? People make it sound like he's some kind of spot picker that's been fighting players from a mite novice league for the last few years. I'd like to see the long list of heavyweights that John Scott has been hiding from.

I'm looking forward to seeing him against guys like Shelley (if he's ever dressed), Rupp, and Thornton. I haven't seen anything that makes me think that he'll be out of his league with those guys.
