This pretty much sums it up When the Sabres first signed John Scott back in July, everyone knew just what the team was getting: a guy who would only play a few minutes a night – if dressed – and would be used to set a tone for the game, and warn opponents to back off. We saw his first scrap as a member of the Sabres in game two against Toronto, but Thursday night was the first time we saw the real John Scott come out. At the 2:53 mark of Buffalo’s game against the Boston Bruins, Scott and “tough guy” Shawn Thornton dropped the gloves as soon as the puck dropped, and went at it.  As you can tell from the video above, it was a pretty one-sided affair. While in normal speed, it’s tough to truly tell how many shots Scott got in, but once the slow-motion replay of the fight starts, it’s clear as day how bad Scott rang the bell of Thornton. Scott ended up knocking Thornton out of the game, and out of the lineup for a prolonged period of time as it was announced Friday that Thornton suffered a concussion from the bout and will miss 7-10 days. And if you think that giving the Bruins forward a concussion was what Scott wanted, you’re dead wrong. Sure, Scot wanted to beat Thornton in the fight, but it’s not like he wanted to seriously injure the guy. Fights are part of the game, and sometimes injuries happen. However, this doesn’t mean Scott wants to jeopardize a player’s career. He even said that he wanted to check on Thornton because he wanted to make sure he wasn’t too hurt. The fight didn’t fully have an impact on the outcome of the game, – that was all Thomas Vanek’s doing – but it did send a little message to the Bruins that if you want to start something, the Sabres have a guy who will finish whatever it is.
