Mixed Emotions About Avery’s Suspension

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?

Sean Avery vs. the Syracuse Bulldogs

After doing this to Marty Brodeur in last season’s playoffs:

Avery started talking smack to Hendrik Lundqvist in his return to MSG the other night:

Until Brandon Dubinsky came to Lundqvist’s aid:

What I’d really like to see is Avery face off against this lineup:

Ogie Oglethorpe, Screaming Buffalo and Dr. Hook McCracken.  That ought to teach a few manners to Avery about how he should treat goalies.
