We’re hearing more and more now about Sean Avery and his upcoming return to the NHL. New York is mentioned the most, with coach Tom Renney saying Avery is wonderful with his teammates. Sure didn’t seem that way in Dallas. Mike Modano and Marty Turco might have a little to say about that. And sure doesn’t seem that way when you hear that he has a nasty habit of picking on rookies and making fun of teammates who stutter. And when asked by George S. awhile back on The Hour to describe most NHL players, Avery replied, “dumb.” Is this being wonderful with your teammates, as Renney described?
From time to time I see the Habs mentioned as a possible team for this nut. I can’t think of anything worse. Let the Canadiens slump. Let them lose to Boston. Let Mike Komisarek make more bad passes. But don’t let Sean Avery wear the CH.
