From NHL:

 

 

Buffalo Sabres left wing John Scott will have a hearing with the NHL Department of Player Safety for a hit on Boston Bruins forward Loui Eriksson during the teams' game Wednesday at First Niagara Center.

Scott was offered the opportunity for an in-person hearing as required by provisions of the Collective Bargaining Agreement for any suspension that can exceed five games.

 

 

Quite a collection of ne'er-do-wells and misfits disguising themselves as hockey players in Buffalo.

Lots o' Shannyvisions lately.

Time for John Scott to go. As a supporter of enforcers and fighting, this guy is making an absolute mockery of whats left of the code in the game. First he goes after a skilled player in Phil Kessel in the pre-season of all times, and tries to fight him which is a huge no-no. Then he throws a semi-late, head shot check on a defenseless skill player in a 4-2 game. There's just no room for it, enforcers are supposed to be the hard working, team guys. That is not John Scott, Scott is a joke and nothing more then a cheap shot version of a "goon". Guys like Colton Orr and George Parros don't do this for a reason, if they can get a lick on a skilled guy they take it. But they don't hit him from behind, or put a shoulder to his head. That's not the way it's ever been done. He'll probably get 5 games, he'll cry about how he's really not a dirty player, and then in a month or two he'll do something stupid again to further make enforcers look bad.

I agree with 99.9% of this, but I do have to give Scott some (very) minor code points for taking it easy on McQuaid in the "fight" that ensued.

Worst hit so far this year IMO. 10 games minimum, or else this league has jumped the shark.

Based on the hit alone and the NHL's fondness on this number lately I could see it being 5 games.

 

Taking into consideration Scott is not a hockey player and already got a phonecall from Shanny for jumping Kessel in the preseason, I'm hoping it's at least 10.

 

 

As Bourne points out on his blog (he played against Scott in college), John Scott had 126 games, 19 points, and 347 PIMs.  In college.

He won't get a significant ban due to lack of prior suspensions I would guess, but will be at least 5.

That hit is definitely gonna earn him a few games. Direct contact with the head. In Scott's defense, his elbow was tucked, and the size difference between the two ultimately burned Scott. I think 3-5 games seems right.

Scott's not making any friends this year. He's gonna have everybody and their mother after him when Buffalo plays Toronto next month, and he'll have to answer for this against Boston.

I remember John Scott when he played for Michigan Tech (I went to Northern Michigan, so our teams were bitter rivals). He was nothing but a goon then, and he obviously hasn't changed.

5 game max. He has no suspension history.

Do people honestly believe Scott is afraid of having to backup his actions? Scott is one of the toughest enforcers in the NHL there are only a handful, who can go toe toe with him, Orr will fight him for sure but it could end badly for Orr if you don't get enough space between yourself and Scott chances are, he is going to knock people out like he did with Thornton. I am also sure he didn't intent to hurt ERicsson like that, he is so big and his ellbow didn't come up but Ericsson had his head down and therefore the unfortunately hit happened, all the best for Ericsson.

From The Score:

 

Boston, MA (SportsNetwork.com) - Boston Bruins forward Loui Eriksson will be out indefinitely after suffering a concussion.

 

Methinks Scott is going to have a lot of idle time on his hands sooner, rather than later. If Shannyvision wants to send a message loud and clear to the rest of the League, he now has his opportunity.

Holy f***, that is a shoulder hit by a guy who is 6'8 there is nothing wrong with that hit.


I also don't know how players get hurt from hits like this which is clearly nowhere close to the impact of the kronwall hit yet kronwall was fine.

I'm sorry, but I am getting close to not being able to take your comments on hitting seriously.  Even Scott himself felt the hit was completely out of line.

On the angle from behind you can see that impact isn't until Scott is past Eriksson's right hip and right shoulder.  He caught a piece of Eriksson's shoulder and also his head, but the mantra from the NHL has been that you need to make solid body contact.  Scott didn't do that. 

 

The NHL has examples of legal and illegal hits on their website that clearly explain the standard.  It's pretty simple.  You can't just fly by and clip a guy in the head and shoulders.  You have to make solid contact to his body.

Dirty hit indeed. I would guess a lengthy suspension for this AND if it happens again by Scott expect an absence from the game altogether...

I highly doubt he'd get banned altogether. Kaleta has been pulling antics for years and he's still around.
