    How is there no Kessel vs. John Scott thread yet?!

    First, I haven`t seen a guy run away like that in ages - since Denis Savard in the early 80s.  Then Phil swings a wild two-hander out there, and then things go geek.  Give Phil credit - he opened up Flynn, but then what the f--- is he thinking going back after Scott and giving him a jab with the stick?  After everything is settling down?

    Fun to see Miller tuned up by Bernier, though.

    Have to say it, that was very entertaining.  Sounds like the crowd enjoyed it too.   Clarkson going to get 10 games for ckming off the bench.

    I'm not sure why Clarkson even bothered coming off the bench because all I saw him do was give Scott a stern talking to. If you come off the bench you should at least fight somebody.

    John Scott just doesnt belong in the league. I usually dont like the stick work but I loved what Kessel did here. Seriously John Scott? Tropp gets laid out in a fight in which he was a willing combatant and his response is to go after Phil Kessel??

    So the edict from the NHLPA is remove the other guys helmet as Phil did. Phil apparently played LaCrosse in Wisconsin (leg whack) and watched Ivan Putski give the eye rake quite a bit.

    Scott, Thornton and the rest of the bozos know it's almost the end of the line. Get rid of these bums!

    In some strange way, I actually gained some respect for Kessel, although coming back at the very end to get another spear in on Scott was just silly and pathetic.  

    I just hate to see a useless thug like Scott trying to jump a star player, in the preseason.  It's awful.  Sure Phil ran and swung his stick, but what's he supposed to do?  Surprised he didn't just turtle.  Then he gave a pretty spirited fight to Flynn.  Good for him.

    John Scott has no place in this league.  It's embarassing for the sport.

    Exactly what I said to myself. Like I said, not a fan of the stick work, but maybe I'm a little suprised at how he stuck up for himself, showed some emotion and holy crap, fought well versus Flynn, I gave him the decsion.

    None of this happens if a hockey player is on the ice instead of John Scott.

    I gained a little respect for Kessel as well, something I never thought I'd live to say. Why was Scott even out on the ice at that point of the game? That's on the coach, who needs his head examined as well.

    Nothing better than seeing Miller get smacked around.

    Thought Scott was a clown, as usual.

    Kessel was great...loved his response.  No "spear" by the way, puts the flat part of his blade into Scott's pants, no harm there.

    Biggest loser?  Flynn leaking after getting smoked by Kessel.

    Scott was sent onto the ice for what Buffalo thought was a clear mismatch and abuse of their team mate ~ Devane (6'5) vs Tropp(6')

    You can argue till your blue in the face, BUT i'd be disappointed if the Bruins didn't do the same.

    Anyone remember Tropp's involvement in this cheap-shot on Steve Kampfer from Michigan vs. Michigan State days?

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fI-sYE1DsMs

     

    Tropp was suspended for the rest of the year for his actions.

    But Tropp clearly initiated the fight with Devane, and then lost.  How can Buffalo be mad at Toronto about that?  Kessel said that Scott told him "I'm gonna jump you".  It's a joke.  You lose a fair fight and then have your goon jump a star player to save face, in the preseason??  Buffalo should be embarrassed.

    And as Crowls points out, Tropp is no saint either.  Sorry you lost the fight, it happens.

    Re: How is there no Kessel vs. John Scott thread yet?!

    Yeah i gotta agree with everything Fletch has said here.  

    Tropp without a doubt initiated the fight. You cant get mad if you pick a fight and lose.

    John Scott is the biggest joke in the history of the NHL. Scott is what 6'8? Kessel is at a towering 5'10 if im not mistaken and also has one career fight under his belt. I HATE when people use a stick for a weapon, but the first wack Kessel gave Scott i have no issue with. Scott deserved that.

    Did Phil Kessel win a fight? HOLY CRAP! Never thought id see the day.

    Seeing Miller get lit up was very satisfying.

    Same. If John Scott jumped me like that I'd probably react the same way. Not sure what the super goon is doing there, going after Kessel of all people. Love the little spear at the end.

    It's possible Buffalo thought Devane drove Tropps head onto the ice, which was my first impression.

    It's easy to look at it in slow mo and pick it apart, but things happen quickly and angles can be deceiving.

     

    anyone else see that ??

    Clarkson LOL...  maybe not the brightest bulb in Toronto

    as for Kessel good for him although after the 1st whack and everyone came to his rescue end it there. 

    Now Kessel has a rep , Chara will come calling LOL ...  would love that and then Clarkson coming to the rescue.

    I hate that stick swinging, but I do like Phil's compete and he really tuned the guy up in the fight.  I'd give him a 2-game suspension for swinging a stick like a whimp, but a pat on the back for acting like a real hockey player in the fight.

    On the otherhand can we see this as a preview , 5 , 10 years down the line when fighting is banned ? See Shupes comments on Skating Clowns thread.

    Wow.  Kessel takes two two-handed chops at a player and he gets props here.  I don't care who you are or who's coming to get you, that's unacceptable.  Hey, if you want to skate away from a guaranteed beating, that's almost understandable, but swinging you stick like that is never acceptable.

    The first whack gets a pass by me. Its something that shouldnt be in hockey. But also 7 feet tall apes shouldnt be looking to drop the gloves with 5'10 snipers that dont fight and arent interested. Scott is a joke. Its obvious phil wasnt going to fight him. Why did Scott drop the gloves like he had something to prove against lil Phil?
