Hey look, the Sabres DID something on July 1st!
They signed defenseman/forward (yes he plays both!) John Scott to a one-year deal, at $600,000. The Edmonton, Alberta native has formerly played for the Minnesota Wild, the Chicago Blackhawks, and most recently the New York Rangers. The best part about this dude? He’s 6’8″ – and he can FIGHT.
We all loved Patrick Kaleta beating the hell out of Derek Dorsett, so why not see John Scott do the same?
When I first heard about the signing I was wary because I don’t think he’s going to play many games. Bonus is that he will surely scare the shit out of some guys once he’s on the ice for the Sabres. How about coming after us now, Milan? Didn’t think so.
