Avery at it yet again...
This time he clips Bruins goalie Tim Thomas in the back of the head (a skate-by with absolutely no chance of being unintentional) with his stick after a play as both teams were headed to their benches for a TV time out. Not a violent hit, just Avery once again being the piece of **** that he is...
The best part is that the NHL has 4-officials on the ice every game. Avery is a KNOWN problem. He's VERY easy to see in this one and yet none of the on-ice guys caught the original play. This is a snapshot of what makes the entire Avery situation so damn funny...
They know he's on the ice. He had been his usual ass-hole self all game. The game is in a TV time out and both teams are headed to their benches. Play is NOT going on. You and I and everyone that knows anything about Avery know he's going to do something. He does something with absolutely nobody else around him and Tim Thomas and none of the officials are even looking his way. After it all settles and they show it on the jumbotron a few times, a linesman goes over to the Rangers bench and gets Avery...
And to make this an even better laugh fest, NHLPA Chief Paul Kelly was at the game and was an intermission guest. He talked about the proposed rules changes for hits to the head, instigator stuff, staged fights...
Avery continues to make a mockery of the NHL and it's officials...
You can't make this **** up...

That was a real boneheaded move by Avery.

I hope Avery gets suspended for the rest of the year and has to go back to anger management before he gets reinstated back into the league.As you mentioned dano,Avery intentionally hit Thomas in the back of the head and it was funny that he throws hands up in the air like he didn't mean too.

I love Avery, just not with the Kings.

And then he's on the Rags bench shaking his head no like he was in disbelief that he was getting hit with a 2-min penalty. It was like a scene out of the old WWF. That's what makes it all the more funny. It's so friggin staged with him. There's no honest emotion there. Just a really f'd in the head whack job piss ant that HAS to have attention...

Should have been a game misconduct. If it wasn't such a close game, someone would have taken Avery's head off. Coach's Corner should be fun tonight.

Avery hasn't done anything (besides play hockey) since he came back to the NHL. This incident comes up and people are all up in flames with the situation. He can't catch a break, can he?

He caught a break when the Rags agreed to take him. He was an idiot to nobody's surprise today. Also, I really don't see anybody all up in flames about this. Rather, most of us are laughing at the ass-clown that is Sean Avery who many of us knew wouldn't be able to keep it together for any extended period of time ...

I want to see a clip of this before I make an opinion.
