Reaction To The John Scott Hit On Loui Eriksson

from Damien Cox of The Spin,

There are goons, and there are rats.

Rarely do you get both in one hockey player. But the Buffalo Sabres, a franchise fallen on very hard times, have such a player.

A goon rat in Sabres clothing, as it were.

A player, quite simply, who needs to have his membership as a player in the NHL revoked for a considerable period of time, an exceptional case even these days when there seems to be a suspension-per-day and NHLPA members seem more determined than ever to cause each other serious brain injuries.

People complain that we in the media only want to talk about this stuff.

How can we not? There's a new sensational violation every day.


Below, some video reaction to the hit...

First the Sportsnet duo of Billy Jaffe and Doug MacLean...


Followed by the NBCSN hockey folks, Mike Milbury and Keith Jones...
