never mess with a man with two first names. Especially if that man is close to 7 feet tall.
You can try to deke by him and trick him into taking dumb penalties, though.
So my Dad had a friend named John Scott, and he was a really nasty SOB....mean drunk. I remember they had a Super Bowl party, like 1988 (I was 10) and when he shook my hand, he squeezed it as hard as he could and made me cry.
Not expecting him to play too much. Will come in handy against the Flyers and Bruins, imo. Was really expecting them to do something else, but oh well...we're in first place and have been the majority of the year.
Scott is strictly a fighter. Can't play much and will never suit up in the playoffs. Perhaps will give Rupp a rest now so he can get healthy and also protect the King against the few remaining Goon teams - Flyers and Bruins. Maybe use Bickel as a forward in those games and Scott on the back line. Trade where you give up a 5th round pick is pretty much a non-event.
Don't expect him to play much and don't expect he'll play in the playoffs at all unless it gets really, really nasty or the Rangers get hit by tons of injuries but I don't really have a problem with this. He's bad news to get into a fight with. Between him and Steve MacIntyre these days over who is the best fighter.
