I fail to understand how expecting a player to be penalized for inappropriate, unprofessional behavior deserves being classified as both a "knee jerk reactionary nut job" and the kind of misguided moron that would try to 'arrest' a jaywalker.
sean avery is a joke. all you avery apologists need to get your heads checked.
Cornell Hockey - LETS GO RED!
"I love this f***ing team right here."
Thomas should have pulled this stunt.
but then again, Avery had already done that.

I BELIEVE I'll have another beer!
The thing that would suck is being Avery's teammate. The one poor Ranger who makes the mistake of coming to Avery's aid gets popped in the face by Thomas, the Rangers now have another 3-ring circus on their hands when they're in the middle of a playoff fight, and Avery gets all the attention - just like he wants. Forget about the Bruins wanting to kick his ass, if I was on the Rangers, I'd be handing out some punishment in the lockerroom.
What. the. ****????
Every ref on the ice that night should be suspended for life.
If they had seen it live, then yeah Avery should have gotten a 2 or a 10 for unsportsmanlike. I would also expect Thomas to do what he did. In fact, I would have liked to see Thomas slide his stick under Avery's skates and pound the crap out of him after he fell to the ice. However to call a penalty based on a replay on the jumbotron is completely insane.
