Top 10: Humans John Scott deserves NHL roster spot over

With just one goal in his entire 187-game NHL career, many fans question why John Scott is on any NHL team's roster. The consistently wreckless, 6-foot-8 neanderthal, they claim, simply doesn't bring anything positive to the table.

The Sabres forward was up to his usual antics on Wednesday night, preying on a defenseless player yet again when he concussed Bruins winger Loui Eriksson with a flying elbow. With his suspension looming, I searched far and wide in an attempt to come up with a list of people that -- for one reason or another -- belong in the NHL less than Scott.

Limiting the scope to players currently in the National Hockey League seemed too narrow, so I expanded it to every living, breathing human being on the planet. Here's what I came up with: 

1. Joe Corvo   

2. That logo-stomping poseur, Justin Bieber

3. Anyone happy with the ending to Dexter

4. The annoying brat from the eHarmony commercials

5. Zach Ham...    






Ah, forget it. John Scott, you're one helluva talentless dirtbag.
