Above, a new Hab and an ex-Hab. Will the new one be as fantastic as the old one?
I come home and see this? Big John Scott traded to Montreal from Arizona for Jarred Tinordi, with a bunch of other names and Nashville involved, although these don’t matter.
Sam Pollock, looking down from above, sure must be impressed.
Finally, the team’s goal scoring problems have been addressed. Big John has notched 5 goals and 6 assists in his 285 games, which is awesome because we all know it’s hard to score in the NHL, and he did it 5 freakin’ times!
This is fantastic. Now we wait to see who will score first, John or Tomas Plekanec.
And 5 goals in 285 games is almost exactly what the Canadiens as a whole are doing.
Big John reminds me in many ways of Guy Lafleur, Rocket, and Jean Beliveau. He knows how to skate, sort of, and those three could skate too, albeit way better.
Beliveau was big, but John, standing 6’8″ and weighing 260 pounds, is bigger, so that’s good, right?
And he’s an all-star like them. Fan%$#&tastic! Forget about the difference between fans voting John in as a joke while Guy, Rocket, and Jean got there by merit. This is only a technicality. They all put on their all-star sweaters the same way.
I’m sure there are other similarities too. But right now, with the numbness in my brain, I can’t think of any.
Anyway, who needs a young, skilled, huge, rough d-man like Tinordi who was also a first round draft pick. When the opportunity to grab John Scott arises, you take it.
Beauty trade, Marc Bergevin.
I need a drink.
