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

01 February 2016 - 10:18 AM

What happened should be remembered as what an All-Star game should be.  The fans wrote Scott in, and while some at the NHL didn't like it, what it turned into was a great PR move.  The NHL is going to learn from this mistake and keep the fan vote in as part of the All-Star game.  It also made Scott a household name.  He won't get a multi-million dollar contract to play hockey, but what he will get are opportunities down the road.  He could go into broadcasting or some other job if he gets tired of playing in the minors.  He has charisma and sometimes that is all you need to be successful.  Most people when they thought of John Scott before was something like what you would see in the movie "Goon".  A brainless idiot that just loves to beat the crap out of people.  Here was a guy that obviously wasn't top tier NHL talent, but he loves the game and it shows.

Really never enjoyed seeing him on the team. I was hoping Holland would package some of these non-producers in a trade but guess that was asking too much.


Packing up 5 non-producers won't bring in anyone worth getting.  They are non-producers for a reason.  Every team can get 5 4th line plugs from their AHL affiliates.

In Topic: Kane case headed to grand jury

Yea it pretty much is over.  The people who thought that Kane raped a woman will continue to think that way while the people who think she was after a quick buck will continue to think that way.  No one will change their opinions.  The fact of the matter is that she just chose to stop going after him.  I know I wouldn't mind reading all the facts of the case, but those won't be coming out for the public to get their hands on.


As I said before, if Kane was guilty, he knows it and he will have to live with it.  Same goes for the woman if she is falsely accusing Kane of rape.  She is going to have to live with her decision as well.

I'm not sure if you are insinuating I feel that way. I've been a huge franzen supporter forever and I would love to have him if he was still healthy. I was pointing out he wasn't trying to just play till his pay dipped and then retire, cause he could have just gone the ltir route and collected all his money without playing. Instead he is still trying to play. So obviously he still has the passion and wants to play


Sorry about that then.  It just read a bit differently.

Im not so sure.  His production hit the skids immediately after his monster contract was completed.  He went into preservation mode in order to grab up all the front loaded cash and considering his base pay drops after this year to 3.5 and then to a mil, hes probably milking it until he can retire. 


His stats say otherwise.  I think if he could have stayed healthy it would have been a very good contract for both sides.  As it turned out, it didn't work out.  :(

Or you know if he's trying to soak up all that cash he can just stay on ltir until his contract expires and get all his money


I really am glad this isn't how a majority of Wings fans feel.  Talk about insulting.
