Scott signs one-way deal

Interim Wild General Manager and Aeros GM Tom Lynn confirmed Monday that the NHL team has signed defenseman John Scott to a one-year, one-way contract worth $550,000.

Because it's a one-way deal, Scott will have to be paid his NHL salary if he is sent down to the Aeros next season.

Ugh.

John Scott is a terrible hockey player.

He's Boris Valabik with less talent, and no fighting ability. Basically, he's a pylon.

I like Big John Scott, but I was hoping that contract extensions wouldn't be handed out until the new GM arrives. I guess Lynn is desperately trying to hang on, by showing Leipold that he is doing something.

Nothing wrong with a one year deal here, Scott's a decent 6/7 d-man and he can drop the gloves. Having a 6'8" defenseman can have advantages.

Yeah, he can drop the gloves, and then get the crap beaten out of him by someone half his size.

A chair would be more useful than John Scott.
