What does Carcillo really provide? He is useless against the top fighters, not the best agitator and coaches hardly trust him against skilled lines. I think the Hawks are starting to realize slowly that letting Scott go, was a big mistake.

Given that Scott is as useless as they come when he isn't fighting, I doubt they regret letting him go.

If healthy, he's shown he can put up some offense on occasion. He can skate a regular shift and is effective on the forecheck. If he can stay healthy, that is.

Also, I highly doubt Chicago regrets letting Scott go. They're just coming off a Stanley Cup victory.

Only in a world this bizarre could anyone insinuate that Dan Carcillo is useless and that John Scott is the better option for Chicago or anyone else.  I'm flabbergasted!

Go to the upper right hand corner where you see your name with an arrow next to it.  Click there and look for "manage ignore prefs".

There was no place else to put this and I didn't want to start a new thread, but did anyone else see that Chris Stewart signed a two year, 8.3 million dollar contract?  Makes those contracts for Clarkson, Bickell, and Clowe look like total s*** doesn't it?

Yeah, I mean it's not like the guy's a super star or anything, but considering how everyone else got paid this year I'm a little surprised he didn't hold out for more.  Then again, maybe he just likes it in St. Louis.

Haha, you've got me all wrong.  I genuinely enjoy reading these types of assessments.  It's kinda like when people put human clothes on their dogs, or dress their toddlers up in suits.  Soooooo close to the real thing, only not.  Adorable.

Yeah for sure.  But everyone seems gaga over size these days.  Anybody with the tiniest amount of skill, so long as they're big, will get a huge contract.  I kinda want Montreal to win the Cup just so a little team can ruin that trend.  Then again, as soon as it happens everyone will be talking about Rene Bourque like he's the second coming of Christ...err...Bryan Bickell.

Those signings don't need help making them look like total s***

Oh this young man has had a very trying rookie season, with the litigation, the notoriety, his subsequent deportation to Canada and that country's refusal to accept him, well, I guess that's more than most 21-year-olds can handle... Ogie Ogilthorpe!
