07:40 AM ET 11.15 | On the one hand, playing his college hockey at Michigan Tech, one could reasonably assume John Scott is a pretty bright guy, but he's been forced to defend himself. [Scott] insists he is not "a meathead." That was the proclamation of the Buffalo tough guy on Thursday as he stood in front of a couple of Toronto reporters discussing the way many fans and hockey types perceive him. Of course, if you ask the thousands of Toronto fans who will flow down the QEW for Friday night's Toronto-Sabres tilt at First Niagara Center, "meathead" would be a compliment to a player who has become one of the most despised figures among those in Leafs Nation. ... For his part, Scott takes offence to the stereotype that he is just a goon whose kind should be eliminated from the league.

Something about putting on skates and a helmet causes a lot of IQs to drop by 100 points. Meathead is being charitable. At least meat is organic. Maybe you like cement head better??

I agree with him. How about "blockhead, dummy, jerk, idiot, stupid, loon"...........so many choices and why should we denigrate perfectly hardworking meatheads?

Is it too late to suggest a CAT scan? Just to save us all a lot of time. I'd feel terrible if I was dumping on someone that really had rocks up there. That would just be insensitive.

Waste of time. Won't find anything up there. Just listening to the Sounds of Emptiness as John Prine would say.

Ok, fine. Then ask Nolan to not dress you tonight and tomorow, the way you haven't been dressed in the 3 games you've been eligible for since your suspension for being a meathead ended.Ugh, where's Archie Bunker when you need him?

I wonder why there's no thread about the three game suspension to Kadri. Or as Kessel calls him, "that lucky bastard".
