Sharks Gameday: The Second Coming of John Scott

New, 17 comments

Don't be gross, guys.

Last night the unimaginable happened. Something so remarkable yet eloquent that it could make Hulk Hogan shed a tear. Jonathan Bufford Scott scored his second goal of the season, which is a career high for him, might I add.

I cannot wait to get this one on a shirt as well.

Two goals. Career high. Pretty impressive, if you ask me. Let's take a look at some players who are also in the two-goal club!

Dion Phaneuf

Danny DeKeyser

Matt Niskanen

Dan Girardi

Dave Bolland

Steve Ott

Maxim Lapierre

Alexander Semin

Rene Bourque

Cody Hodgson

Marcel Goc

Tomas Kopecky

Brenden Morrow

Teuvo Teravainen

Some of these players for a lack of a better word are...surprising to be on such a prestigious list with John Scott. Others well, they frankly deserve it. Did anyone have any idea that Brenden Morrow was still in the NHL?

Now let's look at some players who have scored less goals than John Scott!

Ryan Suter

Paul Gaustad

Daniel Paille

Ryane Clowe

Jordan Leopold

David Booth

Shawn Thornton

Daniel Cleary

Manny Malhotra

Rob Scuderi

Deryk Engelland

Obviously the funniest person on that list is Ryan Suter. He is currently getting paid 11 million per year aka 11 million per goal scored for the Minnesota Wild. Good contract guys, you really locked up something special there. Sadly, the Wild have him signed for the next 11 years so other teams will have to try and find players who can score one goal.

Ryane Clowe should have retired.

I understand why Florida has kept Shawn Thornton around and he doesn't need to score goals, due to grit and also being able to count how many goals they need to catch up when losing---two important things.

Manny Malhotra should have retired.

Rob Scuderi should have retired.

Deryk Engelland is getting paid 8.7 mil over 3 years.


I leave you with some recycled John Scott photoshops!

Well last night's game didn't really go to plan, but hey, it's for the greater good. I would say that I hope Vancouver gets a point out of this one but fuck Vancouver. Sharks win, 2-1. Goals from John Scott and Scott Hannan.
