    Are you popping the champagne, Tab? :)

    Tab, I wonder if Scott was traded in order to make room for more younger players coming up. Also, from the photo it looked like Odoya is a fighter. If so, that would explain Scott’s departure.

    What a great move. When our injured Captain returns, he will be protected by? Not that Scott was that valuable as a hockey player… however when he plays our top guy’s seem to be safer.

    I am now on the fence with Junior. This is what you can do.

    Oh man, the one thing that will make losing somewhat acceptable – a John Scott beatdown – is lost. Also, it’s not like we needed to get rid of toughness…

    I think Toews will be protected by the same player who has protected him all year…Jamal Mayers. Thank you to Stan for trading John Scott so I wasn’t forced to see him spend more time in the penalty box than on the ice and destroying our defensive corps with the additional minutes he forced on everyone else.

    Damn :( I was actually upset by this move. He was a great guy. Not the best of hockey players, but he filled a role and filled it well. I hope this doesn’t mean teams will take even more liberties with the Hawks’ stars.
    Derek Dorsett taking a run at Scott – that was an awesome moment, and I think many Hawks fans can’t help but smile at that thought.
    We’ll miss you, John.

    @Kurt – Scott was in the roster when the captain was injured; where was he to protect him and keep him from getting hurt (or punish those that hurt him that game)?

    Scott is the king of staged fights; nobody is a better one and he is a great guy. I hope he takes up a role in tv/radio when his career ends. However, he is a terrible hockey player that is such a liability on the ice that he cannot be trusted to play more than 3-5 minutes a night and he is completely unable to fill his role as protector/enforcer because A) he is never on the ice when the stars players are because he is such a poor player and B) nobody in their right mind will accept a fight with him (except for Dorsett and other teams’ bad player/eforcers). Mayers, Hayes, Seabrook, Montador, Bickell, and eventually Olsen are the ones that need to be the deterrents as they are the ones who get enough playing time to matter.
