Fight of the Night- Scott vs Janssen
(video courtesy of hockeyfights.com)
The first of the new running feature comes from last night's Blackhawks/Blues tilt which saw the lone three fights of the night. The one I chose was John Scott and Cam Janssen as the best of the three. Scott is slowly becoming one of the best fighters in the league, using his 6'8" frame as an advantage against smaller combatants. I expect that he will fight around 15 times this year when it's all said and done, dominate for two years, before no one in the league wants to challenge him and he fights around 10 times a year. You'll know when this happens about the same time the Rangers sign him to a 4 year deal worth over $3 million.
A couple fights from the past couple days I wanted to mention since I didn't post Monday or Tuesday; from Monday night, the Sean Avery-Tyler Kennedy tussle, which I was there to see in person. The other, from Sunday, is the Andre Johnson-Cortland Finnegan fight, since you don't see NFL fights like that everyday.
