btw on the Rangers website he is listed as a LW, so its not just D depth

he is a utility man. He wont help much but he will crush some faces...........doesnt help them win the cup but it sets a tone

Scott is here to be a bullet in a gun that may never be fired .. He is here because the rangers are top team and can not afford a cement head ***** from the flyers or so to injure a talent before the playoffs great smart move

You couldn't be more wrong - at least as regards me.

I think the goon's role is stupid. And I thought that the Boogaard contract (what was it 3 years for $1.5MM per year?) was absolutely gawdawful; he was signed for meaningful money, to play a regular role, for three years. Hated, hated, hated that signing.

But, Scott? We traded a 5th rounder (easily replaced if you actually see someone left in the 5th that you want to snag) for THE toughest guy in the league for the last 21 games of the season to counter the ******** antics of the Flyers and Bruins - and then to provide depth in the playoffs.

And then, his NHL minimum contract expires.

I have NO problem with this move.

Who said that about Rupp? Rupp was never a pure fighter, he's done well to improve that, but I've never seen him do anything that would inspire fear.

I can't wait for the next Devil game...I want to see how Bolton does when he is the guy who is outweighted by 30 pounds.

He is such a bad ass...wanting to exchange with Prust...how he doesn't get the instigator is amazing.

Now for those of you who think this is a bad move...please go root for another team.

We got a beast for a 5th round pick...guy was loved by his teammates everywhere he played and can move back and forth from forward to defense...is he any good...not really...but he is good at beating the **** out of people.

Eminger wasnt particularly good but he got better in the system, same for Bickel, Stralman, Mitchell...if this guy can play 6-8 minutes a game...he will be a force and if can't...he can sit on the bench until someone pisses off Torts enough to put him on the ice for a shift.

A 5th round pick for the last 20 games when we play teams that will do anything to beat us and people cry like *****es....

It isn't a mystical realm when it comes to Scott. He annihilates people. From what I've heard, there are plenty of players that refuse to fight him.

Of course i'll ****ing cheer for a Ranger. People think I don't like the guy- no, I don't like him as a hockey player. I wanted Boogs to kick ass, didn't mean I thought he was a useful hockey player. May he rest in peace but I hated when he dressed and thought he was pretty useless.

This thread mimics the Boogaard thread because people think he'll contribute. I bought in once, not again. Give me Rupp and Prust, not Boogaard and Scott. I'm not buying into the idea of a deterrent again- if somebody's going to goon it up, John Scott isn't going to stop them.

I'd play Scott when we're 10 points at the top of the East with 7 games to go in the season.

I am more than fine with this move. It's added depth and insurance in case Prust or Rupp need a night off to rest up. I don't expect to see him on defense for this team with Eminger and Woywitka waiting in the wings, but with 17 games in 30 days in March against some big, tough teams, the more weapons in your arsenal, the better.

Not to mention they're adding another fantastic personality to the locker room.

This trade is worth a 5th rounder. I want to see that goof Sestito try his nonsense now. While we're at it, Rinaldo and that punk Simmonds have some things to answer to as well.

My question is can he actually play the game? I dont care about giving up a 5th rounder. But can he play? Because if he cant, thats great and all that we can afford to use him during the season against teams like BOS NJ PHI, etc but he cant be on the ice come playoff time if he cant play the game of hockey

I like the cut of his jib.

Throws with both hands too. In a game where you need some bruisers getting a few minutes... I can't imagine Rupp, Prust, Bickel, and Scott in the lineup at the same time.

We're all of a sudden even nastier than before. Awesome.

Don't forget Pittsburgh either. He chucked em with Engelland too.

Yes!

I mean, it's a 5th, but, you never know.

Seriously?

Yes, John Scott will help the Rangers fight their way to a cup by simply beating everyone up.

You're right, how could this move be seen as anything short of brilliant and game-breaking?

No. that's what was said about Boogaard.


and i must add, the way i saw Prust struggling against Boulton tonight, Scott's fists (in Boulton's face) will be a welcome site.

Good post. 100% agree. We got a target on our backs now. Scott will be a detriment and allow guys like Rupp, Prust, Dubinsky, Boyle & Cally to focus on playing and not fighting. Scott and Bickel will be our avenging goonsquad.
