For those of you expecting Arizona Coyote tough guy John Scott to embarrass himself and the league, I hope you’re not holding your breath. Sure there are better players not playing in the game. There are better players playing in the game. Yes, it’s three on three.
Just remember though, the guy is in the NHL. although he’s never been a scorer at any significant level, he has a reasonable amount of puck skills. When you practice with and play against the best players in the world every day you learn a thing or two about what chances you can take and when to dish the puck off.
Also, with the nature of the three on three there’s going to be a lot of turnovers all around. I’m pretty sure with everything going on in those games, John Scott will become just another name on the long list of players that try to force something that isn’t there.
