Sabres Agree to Terms With John Scott

Rate this post

Buffalo fans have been waiting all day for the Sabres to make a move, and finally they have. It’s not a big signing in terms of salary, but in terms of size, it is.

The Sabres have agreed to terms with John Scott, a 6’8″, 270 pound enforcer who should help make the team a bit tougher.

“John’s size and toughness make him a difficult player to battle against,” Regier said. “His physical play will be a valuable addition to our team.”

It is a one year contract worth $600,000. Scott has recorded five points (1 G, 4 A) in 146 NHL games. He has played for the Rangers, Wild and Blackhawks.

It was a needed move. There is still plenty of time for that 'blockbuster" to happen. This can open up a cleaner Kaletta and Foligno to just keep on going. It will also curb open season on Miller. I know I would NOT want to lay out Miller if i knew Big John was gonna be on the ice with me ready to pound the living SH1T outta me!

"people have said that he's never lost a fight in 4 years" Obviously nobody from Chicago has been commenting on the situation.

He might not even be able to skate after someone to fight them. He is slower than if you were to try to sprint through wet concrete.

One fight as a Ranger and lost. The most useless player available in free agency. Congrats, guys!

he's gonna suck in point producing but people have said that he's never lost a fight in 4 years so it helps a little bit on toughness but in general it's a waste of money
