In response to kelvana33's comment:
I dont know if he has 23 fights because other enforcers are afraid of him or it's because he isnt on the ice enough since he is god awful..Could be a little of both.
Averaging 2:04 of icetime after 2 games. You could be on to something. As someone else mentioned, complete waste of a roster spot.....
True, but San has a point. He was brought in for a a reason, I suspect his ice time will increase against Boston. If the Lucic/Miller ncident doesnt happen or if they actually reacted to it at the time, John Scott probably would not be a Sabre today.
If his icetime increases when the Sabres play Boston, the Bruins have already won.....
Thats what I say. Good. If I were Julien, I'd have Thornton or whoever not answer his plea to fight right away. Force Ruff to keep sending him out there. He's a liability on defense, do a quick change and expose him. They do this strategy and they'll probably get a couple of power plays out of it.
Exactly. Look how stupid Laraque looked a couple of years ago while on the Habs first line trying to keep up and constantly looking to fight Lucic.....completely moronic.
By the way, while I agree Lucic's hit on Miller was a major reason for Buff beefing up, so was this later in the year:
Probably the last straw for Sabre management.....
