Hey, he scored two goals that should impress Wings fans.  He actually went to the net on one goal and actually scored on a breakaway on another.  Two things most of our players don't seem capable of doing.  


More allstar goals than crosby.  :clap:

In Topic: Players Tribune: John Scott A Guy Like me

Enforcers have frequently been the nicest guys on many teams.  If anything, it's usually the star players who act like a-holes.  

I am starting to notice that trend. I'd go as far to say that most hockey players seem to be pretty nice guys.. And definitely agree that the bigger a-holes seem to be the bigger stars.

And Toby, they try to do the IP address thing already i think.. I'm pretty sure you only get five ish votes per day or something. There are ways around it in which people exploit to stuff ballots, yes. In all likelihood, the nhl will just have a predetermined ballot for captains of 100-150ish players or so.

It was a really cool experience having John Scott there though.. Now just trade him back to Arizona please. (If he even wants to go back after that nonsense)

What a great read. And what a great guy. 


I'll be the first to admit, I've never expected an enforcer to turn out to be such a nice guy.. but I love everything that the John Scott saga has become. also, Go Huskies.

not sure if this has been mentioned, but it appears the jets are done trying to negotiate with ladd and have turned their focus to buff..



Pretty compelling stuff here from TSN senior correspondent Gary Lawless on the rocky relationship between Winnipeg and captain Andrew Ladd:


Talks with Ladd’s agents have broken off. In the meantime, Jets’ GM Kevin Cheveldayoff was recently seen huddling with defenceman Dustin Byfuglien’s representative.

Winnipeg has chosen Buff ahead of Ladd. It’s a reversal in direction that must have surprised the captain and his teammates.

Lawless goes on to report that relations between Ladd and the Jets have “soured,” adding the 30-year-old pending UFA is seeking a six-year extension “with an average annual value north of $6 million.”
