1. It doesn't matter that he missed. He tried to hit an engaged player. He has a history and he should be punished....period.
2. RC might have tried to defuse the situation, but he is an idiot to send his stars out there when he sees who Buffalo has on the ice.
3. And there is no code about doing what Scott did. Kessel ain't that good.
4. How come Scott doesn't get the "trying to make the team" free pass? Buffalo had issues recently with teammates not defending each other (Miller getting run). Scott had to fight someone to stick up for Tropp and keep his roster spot. So, yeah, that is weak logic.
