Did you see that John Scott hit on Loui Eriksson last night? If you didn't, here it is:
Keep in mind, my blood is still a little bit boiling from John Scott's cowardly attack on Phil Kessel in the preseason which has left David Clarkson out for the last 10 games (will be back in the lineup tomorrow night).
My thoughts on the hit? Shanahan, THROW THE BOOK AT HIM! Seriously though, I wouldn't be surprised if Scott gets 10+ games for his late his on Loui Eriksson last night. Eriksson dumps the puck into the attacking zone, and get's blindsided with a late, a flying elbow to the head from John Scott. This is the exact hit that the NHL is trying to eliminate. Late, elbow, blindside, to the head, and from a useless NHL player. I know Scott doesn't have a suspension history, but he can look to his teammate, Patrick Kaleta, who was just dished out 10 games for checking the head of Columbus' Jack Johnson as an example of what not to do.
Coincidentally, before the game Mike Milbury was talking about how John Scott is a useless player in the NHL and has no business being there. He is there to hurt and that's all! I'm not much of a Milbury fan, but he was bang-on with this comment! Disagree with me that he's a useless player? Let's take a look at his Hockeydb stats:
He has 5 points in 187 games played, and 0 in his last three seasons... yes, he is USELESS! Get him out of the league.
Conclusion: Scott is a piece of trash floating in the NHL who will get 10 games. Ron Rolston (BUF coach) will get a hefty fine, possible suspension.
Rant done. Peace out.
