Frankly I have never seen Scott play so I have no clue. I just watched around 10 of his fights thanks to this site so it looks like he can handle his dukes but I have no clue what type of player that he is!
Based on your comments, I'm assuming that he sucks. I'd have to watch him first and then I'll give an opinion.
When I saw the news that they acquired John Scott
, I was like who the hell is John Scott
? Was he a skilled defenseman or a rugged defenseman? I didn't even know who he played with.
Now I've watched a bunch of his fights and he looks to be a good fighter but I need to watch him play!
I've watched Bickel and he has some skills and has played pretty solid for a career AHL player. He's not just a goon who can't play and is better than I thought that he would be. Do I want Michael Sauer
back-in a heartbeat but Bickel has done the job and allowed 20 year old Tim Erixon to gain valuable experience in Connecticut!
Bickel also plays the game and will fight in the flow of the game. He hasn't been one of these guys who can't do a thing and just looks to fight with no rhyme or reason!
Is this Scott guy like that, I have no clue and need to watch him play!
I don't come on this site to just watch clips of fights unless I missed a Rangers fight. It's why I had no idea who Scott was. I log on and go right to the forums and don't go into the video fights section! I'm also not one of those guys who owns 9 million fight tapes and sits in a dark room watching them.
