Scott makes everyone a little bigger and tougher.

And........ for the price is a great addition.

Again....... FOR THE PRICE IS A GREAT ADDITION.
How does it sound like "most here want a team full of Brad Boyes's". There is an extreme minority that has a problem with this move, even though really this move doesn't actually make us any more or less a team of Brad Boyes's because the players who are going to get playing time are still the same players.

He's never done anything like that again. My personal hunch is that the fine from the league. came with an informal warning not to try it again.

Growing up in nearby St. Catharines, Ont., John Scott loved crossing the border and watching the Sabres play at Memorial Auditorium and HSBC Arena.

His father’s boss had season tickets, so every couple of weeks he’d make the 30-minute trip to the Queen City.

“I grew up a pretty big Sabres fan,” the 6-foot-8, 270-pound tough guy told the Times Herald by phone Sunday night, shortly after inking a one-year, $600,000 contract with the Sabres on the opening day of free agency.

Like a lot of other locals, Scott loved former Sabres Dominik Hasek and Brad May.

He also enjoyed saying the funny names of Buffalo’s suburbs.

“Lackawanna, Tonawanda, Cheektowaga,” Scott recalled. “I was really young, so I just liked that part of it.”

As would I. He's grown into a legitimately quality hockey player.

C'mon, Bring in some brawlers. Remember the Ray, May, Barnaby, Boughner era ? We beat the crap out of everyone and they were some of the most loved teams in sabres history.

Do you really think we are gonna get close to a cup run with this crop of players and coaching staff anyways ?

Bet you would.

We'll take a Scott-Mccormick-Kaleta line and see how many Bruins push the Sabres on the top three lines around.

Why are you guys complaining over a guy we signed for 600k to kick Lucic's ass. Its rediculous how much people complain.

Maybe he'll fall on Weber during practice and they will both be press box warmers Two birds, one stone.

Its definitely not a one or the other. Kaleta's not a fighter really and he incites a lot of hate from other teams, which hopefully turns into powerplays for us. If it turns into fisticufs its to Kaleta's benefit to have Scott there to back him up.

Nobody here expects Scott to make a difference by himself as a hockey player. But we're hoping everyone else can play with a little more edge knowing he's there. And if he doesn't, what's 600K? Its a no risk/potentially exciting reward situation.

I won't be too mad as long as he uses Lucics face as a punching bag... Guarantee Big bad Milan won't even drop the gloves with him, for being so big and bad he sure loves to pick his spots

Actually, Regier was not satisfied with the response on then Leopold hit on Ruff, so he picked up Scott to protect Ruff in practice.

No, your trend list is based on whatever who you follow are talking about now.

Yup, that's how thirsty for hockey news we are. Is it a sign of impressive devotion or just sad?

Anyone who thinks this a bad signing for 600,000 is out to lunch. This guy destroys people, will give our players more room and will keep the Bruins honest.

Kaleta was extended a qualifying offer, the team is not negotiating with RFAs untill they make their FA plays and trades.

As is obviously known, it takes two to fight. Every player big John Scott wants to fight simply won't. Instead, he'll get a penalty for roughing or fighting as his opponent laughs his way back to his bench. John Scott and his limited role, limited minutes, and limited games, will have a limited effect on the low number of guys who would even fight. Not a bad signing, not a good signing

Ok, this is something I haven't see before in an NHL fight. At 0:15 it look like Scott catches a left from Parros with his right hand like it's a softball, tosses it aside, and pops him in the mush before finishing the annhilation.

If you're gonna sign a goon, might as well sign an undefeated goon. Hockey Fights has been waiting for Scott vs Chara since 2009 - they might finally see it.

Is it so hard to find a guy that can fight and play a little hockey at least? It's always one or the other with us.

I'm ok with this signing. Teams are going to continue to try to play their game with or without the threat of some size freak pounding their helmet into their head.

The Sabres still have McCormick, Kaleta, McNabb, Regehr, Tropp, and Foligno who are all willing. However, only a couple of them are any good against another middle weight. I'd like for all of them to continue to play a physical game without any one of them being responsible for stepping out of their weight class/experience and stepping up to Thorton, Rosehill, Parros, etc.

With Kaleta's neck problems and the concussions that Cody took last year, I'm ok with a low cost goon that can step in for a few minutes a game and occasionally demolish folks.
