1970 beat me to it.

That has to be a Rochester signing.

Guy is a monster at 6' 8" tall and 270 lbs.

I'm guessing there will be a couple of d-men moving via trade.

Gotta be honest, I'm actually kinda pleased with this signing. He's Andrew Peters reincarnated. Only four inches taller haha.

D in Chi, LW in NY.  He'll only be on the ice for 20 seconds before he is beating someone up so it doesn't matter.

He'll be the ahl callup whenever they need someplace. And they will be bringing up some serious muscle when they do that.

Scott's presence should create room for the skilled players and prevent opponents (ala Lucic) from taking liberties.

Does it matter?  Two-way only has to do with the AHL salary being different than the NHL one, not anything to do with waiver status.

If you want an enforcer, John Scott is a good choice.  If you want him to do anything else, I'm not sure that he's qualified.

Are we sure that the Sabres signed him; according to their Facebook post (courtesy of my wife, I've never been on Facebook in my life) the Sabres agreed to germs with him.

I'm thinking that puts him on Roy's line.

The day the Sabres decide to build against one opponent's specific player is the day they concede defeat.

Hey, if Scott is the next Peters (i.e., sitting in the 200s for many games), cool.  If he's regularly in the lineup, there are problems.

That said, welcome John Scott!  Grab a last name, pull on a blue-and-gold sweater, and let's kick some ass as a Sabre, K?

I can only dream of Scott squaring off against Lucic at the FNC en route to a beat down of those Boston punks.

Not talking about one game in particular. Lucic and the gang are a bunch of punks all the time, not just when they take cheap shots at Miller.

Well well, I guess Parros wasn't though enough for the 'new look Sabres'? They went and got a straight enforcer. Perhaps there murmurs of Miller not being overly impressed with his protection are true? I'm not sure how useful John Scott will be for an NHL team, but in my minds eye I take great pleasure in seeing Scott fists pounding into the face of Chara.

Good signing. Haven't seen the $$ yet but I imagine he's a much cheaper alternative to Brandon Prust, who many on twitter were apparently heartbroken that we didn't sign. Not sure how many games he'll play with the Sabres (~30 would be my guess) but it was a necessary move with many other teams adding muscle this afternoon.

I expect we play him in a LW role on the 4th line -- I see no benefit to dressing him as a defenseman unless Joe Finley is his partner and the Boston Bruins are the opponent.

If I may:  completely and totally useless.  He's terrible at everything related to hockey other than fighting....and why would Chara or Lucic fight him?  They're smarter players than to be taken off the ice 5 minutes by a worthless goon.

Did Val James play against anyone other than the Bruins?

O'Reilly was dumb enough to fight him.  Here's to hoping Lucic is that dumb.
