JOHN SCOTT RUMORS & GOSSIP

Time for John Scott, traditional enforcers to go

After his latest stupid suspension, maybe this will be the straw that finally breaks John Scott’s back.

John Scott Leaves Bench, Sparks Massive Ducks-Sharks Line Brawl (Video)

Sharks Enforcer John Scott Scores First Goal Of 2014-15 Season (Video)

It’s a little surprising that John Scott still has a job in the NHL. The 6-foot-8 enforcer lacks speed, skill and the ability to play at least 10 minutes per game, but the San Jose Sharks decided to sign him over the summer as a free agent to bolster the fourth line. Scott entered Tuesday night’s game against the Washington Capitals with two goals in 236 career games. He added...

Scott plays an average of 6.44 minutes a game. Other than fighting abilities, Scott has no other hockey talents. His Corsi numbers aren't that good either. That’s quite the racket.

Hoping to get 'tough,' Sharks sign nothingman John Scott to one-year deal

Oh, San Jose. We had a chance here. A real chance to do something good for the game. And you had to go and pretend there's something of value left in what is the last of a dying species. A broken down, outdated, useless and cheap species that serves only to damage the game we love.An endangered species in his natural habitat: John Scott (via cbssports.com)The San Jose Sharks, with...

Report: John Scott Signs One-Year Deal With San Jose Sharks

There are times when NHL enforcer John Scott does something that people think is dumb, and the first question is always “Why do teams continue to hire players like John Scott?” That question could have been asked Wednesday afternoon, too. Scott signed a one-year contract with the San Jose Sharks worth $700,000, according to CSNBayArea.com. Scott was an unrestricted free agent...

WATCH: John Scott gets knocked out by Justin Johnson

When referencing John Scott of the Buffalo Sabres, I choose to use quotation marks when calling him a “hockey player” because his level of hockey skill is an embarrassment even for the ‘goon’ label he’s tagged with. He’s basically paid solely to hunt, fight and injure opposing players, which is why what happened to him on Sunday afternoon is so great. During the first...

Buffalo Sabres: Should John Scott have a place on the roster?

Every team has their own version of him.  A player who is put out there for one reason: to scare the opposition.  Most teams would say their version of a ‘goon’ can skate, chip in offensively, defend teammates and bring more to the table than just intimidation.  The Buffalo Sabres’ John Scott, however, is not exactly in that category. John Scott elbowing forward Loui Eriksson...

John Scott gets penalty for literally throwing a puck into the net

As a professional athlete, sometimes you need to come up with unorthodox ways to help your team win games – even if it means bending the rules a little bit. Buffalo Sabres enforcer John Scott is not very good at scoring goals (two career tallies in 205 NHL games) but you can’t fault him for not trying. Scoreless in the first period of last night’s Panthers-Sabres game in Buffalo...
