I despise Sean Avery. I think all goalies, including the ones on his team, hate Sean Avery. He’s a pompous ass who deserves to have his head forcibly inserted into said ass by an opponent. But the NHL has no place in handing down any suspension, let alone six games. It was a stupid public comment and should be addressed by his employer but the real retribution should come on the ice.
I don’t know for sure but I have to assume from his interview afterward that even Stars goalie Marty Turco has no use for Avery and would like to see him dealt with in a more appropriate manner. Of course Turco remembers what Avery did to Marty Brodeur last season and to Rangers’ goalies Henrik Lundqvist and Steve Valliquette this season. Do you really think Turco is going to side with Avery over fellow Olympians Brodeur and Lundqvist?
