JOHN SCOTT RUMORS & GOSSIP

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 A broken down, outdated, useless and cheap species that serves only to damage the game we love.An endangered species in his natural habitat: John Scott (via cbssports.com)The San Jose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...

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...

Sabres LW Scott faces hearing for hit on Eriksson

Buffalo Sabres enforcer John Scott has been suspended indefinitely by the NHL pending a disciplinary hearing for a blindside hit to the head that leveled Boston Bruins forward Lou Eriksson.

HI!

Sabres' John Scott videobombs interview

via NHL.com video Whatever I say here won’t do justice the little stunt that Buffalo Sabres’ tough guy John Scott pulled during teammate Chad Ruhwedel’s post game interview Sunday.  While MSG-Buffalo’s Brian Duff asked Duhwedel about getting a high-stick to the face while not wearing a full shield, Scott grabbed his faux fur coat and got his groove on. Duhwedel had no clue...

Sabres Fans: Time To Really Meet John Scott

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...

So who is John Scott?

After the Rick Nash deal fell through, the Rangers made a minor move in sending a fifth round pick in this year’s draft to Chicago for defenseman John Scott. The first thing someone will notice about Scott is that he is big, listed at 6’8 and 258 lbs, the dude is a big boy. The undrafted defenseman, who is also capable of playing left wing, played four years at Michigan Tech...
