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.
