John Scott and the NHL All-Star Game: A movie in the making
Happy ending for career journeyman
John Scott didn't just get the last laugh this All-Star Game weekend, he got the bulk of them.
The 33-year-old was genuinely happy to be in Nashville, and looked like he was having the most fun out of anyone.
What a great weekend this has been. Nashville did a great job and <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/JohnScott?src=hash">#JohnScott</a> did the rest. Big 👍🏻.! <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/NHLAllStarWeekend?src=hash">#NHLAllStarWeekend</a>—@ErikKarlsson65
It seemed to be just icing on the cake that he captained the Pacific team to a win, scored two goals and was voted MVP.

Of course it must have felt good to throw some shade at his haters, like this dig at one of his biggest critics, Jeremy Roenick.

And you're pegged for the cover of NHL17:
Not sure who made this (hats off to whoever did) but this is definitely my vote for the next <a href="https://twitter.com/EASPORTSNHL">@EASPORTSNHL</a> game cover <a href="https://t.co/zPLzAo0xYb">pic.twitter.com/zPLzAo0xYb</a>—@NHLnumbers
And fans start campaigning for you to get called back up to the NHL:
<a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/Habs?src=hash">#Habs</a>, call him up. Club is in the toilet, he won't hurt, be a lift in the room, and certainly keep peace on the ice. Bell fans will love it—@afdcaptrb
It makes you wonder, who will play John Scott in the made-for-TV movie?
Through it all, John Scott stayed classy. The lesson here: keep your head up, keep your stick on the ice and just know...
