Found October 23, 2013 on Days of Y'Orr:
PLAYERS: John ScottSteve Ott
TEAMS: Buffalo Sabres
  There's no point to John Scott. Seriously. The guy has five career points in 180 games and never finishing with a positive plus/minus rating. Dude hasn't scored a goal since '09-'10 season.  And for the people ready to talk about fighters, there's a huge difference between enforcer and a goon, and John Scott is captain of the latter.  Guy can barely stand up on ice skates without milk crates out there. With Boston up by a couple Scott hit the ice to do what he does best, concuss people. ; We're having Cooke/Savard flashbacks by watching that. The "amusing" bit about this is that on #DOYLive tonight we were talking with Sabres fans who also have no ******* clue why Scott is on the team. Of course, that wasn't always the way... All this because Buffalo felt like ti needed to get tougher, but being confused and mixing up toughness with goonery.  This is a 5 gamer at least. Kaleta is already suspended and Scott...

Drop Passes

By: Rich Miller (@pensbender) This is pretty straight forward, right?  John Scott is a statue on skates and is basically as one-dimensional as they come in today’s NHL.  In 187 career games, he’s tallied five points.  Five.  It’s counterproductive, yet punch throwers and cheap-shot artists like Scott continue to take roster spots away from guys who can actually play hockey...

Sabres Hack John Scott Pounds Bruins Forward Loui Eriksson in the Head

Last night, Buffalo Sabres pylon, hack, one-dimensional forward, John Scott hit Boston Bruins forward Loui Eriksson in the head with one of the dirtiest hits I have seen this season.

Jack Edwards' Twitter rants are as crazy as his announcing

With the NHL season well underway we're way overdue in checking in on one of our favorite local announcers - Boston Bruins play by play man Jack Edwards.  Let's spin the Jack Edwards Wheel of Insanity and see where we land... [Price is Right Wheel Noise] Crazed Twitter rant it is!  We just narrowly missed out on another Sirhan Sirhan reference. Jacko had to...

Sabres Once Again Prove They're a Joke Organization. BRUINS WIN!

Been trying to write a good intro but the Scott hit pissed me off too much. Just like every other head shot this season by some goon who shouldn't be in the league. This isn't just about a Bruins player being injured. Scott knew he could do this because the NHL gives less than a **** about player safety. They try to pretend they care by enforcing more rules in fights...

Mike Milbury thinks the Sabres should fire Ron Rolston

Mike Milbury was not happy about John Scott's dirty hit on Loui Eriksson. This anger boiled over and led to some critical remarks about Scott and Buffalo's coaching staff, including his belief that Ron Rolston should be fired by the Sabres.  Courtesy of SB Nation, here's video of Milbury's statements: Rolston has already been fined by the league this...

Random tweeters try and defend John Scott

Lost in the hubbub of the the World Series last night was the Boston Bruins playing in Buffalo against a terrible hockey team. Everything was going swimmingly for most of the game. The Bruins were scoring goals, they were having a good time, people were laughing at the misfortune of Buffalo. Oh Buffalo. Without you, we would not have most of our hockey humor and the world would be...
