    Default "You do not get to talk to Mr. Sakic." - Brett Hull to Sean Avery in 2001

    Cool story: Previously-untold Sean Avery/Joe Sakic story shows how NHL veterans enforce on-ice respect | Post-to-Post

    It was the 2001-02 season – Sean Avery’s rookie NHL campaign – and his Detroit Red Wings were taking on the defending-champion Colorado Avalanche. Avery’s reputation as a big-time trash-talker already was well established from his formative years in the Ontario League – and when Avs captain and Hockey Hall-of-Famer Joe Sakic lined up near the Wings bench before a faceoff, Avery stood up and yelled at Sakic to get his attention.
    However, in the two or three seconds it took Sakic to turn his head toward Avery, Red Wings veteran and star winger Brett Hull stood up, reached around another Detroit player, grabbed Avery by the back of the jersey and unceremoniously yanked him back to the seated position before he could utter another word.
    You do not get to talk to Mr. Sakic,” Hull said.

    I give props to Hull for that. Though I don't know his personality, so my judgement is not clouded.

    REALLY? The only person more of a dick than Brett Hull is Bobby Hull... And only because Brett is more genial than his father.

    I'd bet the house that you'd be far far more likely to warm up to Avery than Hull.

    Woah...go figure. I know I heard before that he was a bit of a case, but this I didn't imagine. I take it back.

    This is not to say that a team like detroit at that time didn't have a use for both Hull and Avery. There are a lot of HOF types on those squads and others and they very clearly let people run amok in their roles. The key was that they do not let you outside your role until it is deemed ok. A lot of that left with scotty and steve but that culture isn't gone yet.

    Hull may be a jerk but I like what he did. Rookies should earn the the right to run their mouths at well established vets. I have no problem with rookies delivering a big hit or undressing a vet with a sick move. On ice stuff is fine, put a little time in before you run your mouth.

    On a another note, on the flip side of Hull, Sakic is one of the nicest, down to earth guys you will ever meet.
