Avery Sucks.

Avery is somewhat entertaining. That being said I'm quite happy his sideshow antics aren't with the Wings anymore.

This thread had taken quite a retarded turn. Mors has abused the "No Sensible QQ" policy.

Talk about a ridiculous, untrue exaggeration.

Really? Strange...having watched roughly 50 games this year it seems pretty obvious that Franzen won't even involve himself in a scrum when one of his teammates is getting pushed around by the opposition.

I dont mind the stuff Avery does one the ice. He knows his roll and hes good at it. It what he does off the ice that bothers me. He doesn't know when to stop sometimes and carries that stuff into the locker room. Its well documented how he used to unmercifully haze/taunt Dustin Brown when he played in LA. I'll pass on that.

No preseason for you?

No playoffs last year?

Maybe he doesn't try to square up with players to fight often because he isn't very good at it?

And maybe you think Avery has "heart and desire" because you don't understand that he is simply acting like a sideshow for the attention? The guy was booted from Detroit for his attitude, and is only able to find a hospitable team in the Rangers who are a pretty mediocre at best franchise.

Yeah, what an inspiration. Don't forget he chose 19 in LA because it was "in honor of Yzerman's stick collecting tour". His own words.

So did Maltby for many years. Would rather have good guys like him and not ass clowns like Avery.

Nothing against Maltby, but there's a particular reason why I would take Avery over Maltby...I'll let you guess what it may be ;)

So fellow LGW members aren't allowed to post their opinions?

Yeah, I already know. Good for that logic but I will take Maltby's hardware he has on his fingers over Avery's bruises from attempting to be "tough.

How is it that women love this guy?

I don't know. I can't stand him. Not only does this video show how much of a complete dbag he is, it shows how the idea of professionalism has never sank into his brain.

I don't give a crud what you say behind closed doors to your teammates, friends, and family. But to act so unprofessional to a fan? Hang up the skates, Avery. You don't belong anywhere near this league.

Nah, you missed the point. Maltby has them, Avery doesn't. Didn't claim that but thanks for the keyboard larceny though wink.gif

What point was missed?

Maltby has Cup rings while Avery doesn't = Maltby a better player?

Not sure I agree with that.

Proves Malts undying unappreciation people have for his role he played on those teams. Entitled to your opinion you are but watch some old game tape. Maltby is and always will be a very underrated part of those Cup runs. Just overshadowed by an immense amount of talent.

Yeah - I fondly remember those years when he was part of that "grind line", but it's not as though there was a shortage back then of guys like Maltby - in fact 3rd line agitators/grinders were very common.

Not knocking Maltby - truth be told I have always appreciated players who can agitate, but then "back it up" if things get a tad nasty...Maltby started alot, but always needed McCarty, or Kocur to fight his fights for him.

IMHO Maltby hasn't been as effective (or is it affective - can never remember :blush: ) when there wasn't a guy on his line whom was capable of handling the rough stuff.

In response to his hazing of Brown:

Brown has/had a slight speech impediment, for which Avery mocked him. Not sure if this was cruel tormenting, or a couple of jabs every now and then. Either way, not very cool to do to a teammate; especially a rookie.

I've always liked Avery.

22 points w/ 157 PIM (tied for 2nd) and only -2

Someone please explain what makes you dislike him so much...? His mouth?

Honestly, my beef with him is the same beef I have with Crosby. They're both good hockey players, it's his personal character that I can't stand. The guy is just a ******.

Yeah - that is pretty childish.
