You have to think this will be the second 6+ game ban.
Buffalo Sabres' John Scott offered in-person hearing with NHL Department of Player Safety - NHL.com - News
The Bettman letter was an interesting read.
Great summary by the commish on Kaleta, Scott should expect a long time in the press box as well. To be honest Ron Rolston is way over his head in Buffalo, playing Scott 8-10 minutes a game? Is their prospect pool that shallow they need to dress a 32 year old goon that has no other skills?
My guess is he gets north of 30 and maybe as many as 40, which is the longest in the history of the league and was Chris Simon's 2nd suspension in a year, the other being 25 games.
He's also not the sharpest knife in the drawer, see from his college days:
Not John Scott's first suspension for a blindside hit - Stanley Cup of Chowder
at the draft party a couple of years ago, and under a considerable haze, i heard Birdman yell out the following (about 4 or 5 times, i think) - "don't marry yourselves to players!" he went on to reiterate that idea more than once on the boards, and i believe it to be absolutely sage.
