I agree it was a mismatch but Tropp chose to drop the gloves. He could've just as easily skated away or given a little slash and moved on with the play. If Scott had a problem with it he should've settled with Devane.

Well I'm sure with Scott it was "you go after my small skilled guys i'm going after yours."

According to Scott, speaking with the media on Monday (via Buffalo News), he was following The Code, that time-honored and completely nebulous set of standards that dictates who gets punched and when.

Scott believes that Corey Tropp, his Sabres teammate, wasn’t in a fair fight with Jamie Devane of the Maple Leafs in the third period of their Sunday exhibition game. Scott was on the ice when the scrap went down. He apparently didn’t notice Tropp ask for the fight (he did). All he saw was Devane, with a height advantage by at least five inches, pummel Tropp, including a punch that landed as Tropp was falling to the ice, hitting his head.

 

“The last punch and driving his head into the ice, I don’t think that was needed,” said Scott.

 

So he stayed on the ice after Tropp went off and Devane went to the penalty box, looking for some measure of retribution. "I would have went after who ever they put lined up next to me,” said Scott.

Maple Leafs Coach Randy Carlyle didn’t have an appetite for further violence. Rather than sending someone out to be pummeled by Scott, he sent Kessel, the team’s best offensive player, out instead to “defuse” the situation.

It’s the hockey version of “you wouldn’t hit a guy with glasses, would ya?” The theory is that goons won’t go after star players. That’s how Carlyle read the Code. Scott had a different reading.

“I can understand his idea behind it. I obviously thought our guy got taken advantage of the shift before. I was trying to stick up for him, and send a message to Toronto,” said Scott.

So Scott decided that even if the sacrificial Leaf was Phil Kessel, he was still the sacrificial Leaf.

“I just lined up with him, and I knew I had to have a response for what happened the shift before, and I said, ‘Phil, we’re going to have to go here. Just to let you know,’” Scott claimed.

What did Kessel say to him?

"‘Alright, let's do it,’” Scott claims.

So Kessel and Scott yapped, Kessel put a glove on him, Scott dropped his, started chasing him, Leafs teammates intercepted the Sabres goon and engaged him, all the while Kessel was slashing and spearing the Buffalo forward in self-defense like a frantic Jedi.

“I’ve never seen a stick-swing like that. He’s gotta do what he’s gotta do. It was an even fight if he has his stick. I didn’t have anything,” said Scott. “Phil’s OK. He came out the better end of it. I have bruises all over my leg.”

 

Scott's perception of the Tropp/Devane fight is a little off there... which isn't all that surprising given that Scott's role as a hockey player is little more than PUNCH, PUNCH, PUNCH. 

 

...but even big dummies can tell the difference between someone falling and someone's head being "driven" into the ice, no?

 

On the other side of the coin, if Kessel's gonna chirp... have at it John Boy.

lol

 

I should have been more specific last night instead of being caught up in the excitement of what happened.

 

What I meant was when Kessel dropped the gloves or whatever you want to call it with Flynn. That part not the rest lol

even if he did drive his head into the ice, wouldnt you wait for that guy to come out of the box and take revenge on him and not someone else who had nothing to do with it? going after any random guy and forcing them to fight is not needed

 

i highly doubt kessel said ok lets do it to a guy almost a foot taller than him and 70lbs heavier. if he did then yea hes a ***** for running away

For me this just reaffirms, Scott is a goon, always has been a goon, and always will be a SENSELESS goon. If bertuzzi fought Tropp and Scott attacked Pasha for it, I would be furious!! Mind you I doubt babs would be dumb enough to send out any of our top 6 or top 4 defensemen if he saw Scott was still out there.

Old time hockey, like it or not.

Sabres/Leafs games are gonna be real chippy this year. Scott is gonna have hands full once these teams meet in the regular season. Orr and McLaren will be after him. I fear for the Sabres, because outside of Scott, who do they have? It's not a guarantee that Cody McCormick makes the team. Ott is a bad fighter, and Kaleta has his gloves glued on. They're gonna get pounded.

The game was in Toronto, Carlyle saw that Scott was still on the ice, and he sends out Kessel... that was a very bad idea.  One of the coach's jobs is to manage the game, and that could have been a devastating mistake on his part.  I'm not defending Scott -- he's a big idiot, see? -- but I think Carlyle deserves some heat for not protecting his star player.  And if Kessel really was baiting him at all... well, hasn't he seen those Messin' With Sasquatch beef jerky commercials?  Yeah, bad idea.

Listen...The first one I can sort of understand SORT OF...but when Scott was engaged with the other players that one is the one I didn't like then the spear at the end. Kessel is going to poke the bear like that then he needs to deal with the consequences of his actions.

Kessel suspended three preseason games (the rest of the preseason). 

 

 

 

NEW YORK -- Toronto Maple Leafs forward Phil Kessel has been suspended for the team’s final three preseason games for slashing Buffalo Sabres forward John Scott during NHL preseason game No. 61 in Toronto on Sunday, Sept. 22, the National Hockey League’s Department of Player Safety announced today.

Seems fair to me.  He got a match penalty and now has repeat offender status so next time maybe he'll cool it with the stickwork. 

 

Though the Sabres coach should've been at least fined for sending out his goons as a retaliation for a fight.

Nice! I hadn't seen that. 
 


Buffalo Sabres head coach Ron Rolston has been fined for player selection and team conduct as a result of events that took place at 10:01 of the third period during NHL preseason game No. 61 against the Toronto Maple Leafs in Toronto on Sunday, Sept. 22.

He certainly deserved it.  Sending out the goons in a preseason game to seek retribution where one of his players was a willing participant in a fight.

But you are forgetting why Scott even came out after Kessel. You keep running your mouth calling out a Goon he will at some point come out. And that's what happened. That's the difference with players Like Dat's When is the last time you seen him chirping are a goon? The code I'm sure for the skilled guys as well is don't poke the bear unless you want to "get got" Scott never even was able to get him but Kessel sure did land several slashes. And then when Kessel's team mates jumped on Scott that sure didn't stop Kessel from still hacking away. 

 

It does not matter what Kessel was saying. There is just no justification for Scott trying to fight Kessel. Find a willing opponent of a similar stature. Scott was around long enough, he should know that it is basically impossible for a prized fighter to go after other team's top line scorer. Such a fight should never happen and there is little reason to try.
