Scott92 Posted December 2, 2008 Report Share Posted December 2, 2008 NHL Suspends Avery for Comments, Pending Hearing BOB MCKENZIE The NHL has suspended Dallas Stars' forward Sean Avery indefinitely, pending a hearing with NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman, and Avery will not be playing in tonight's game against the Calgary Flames. Avery is being suspended for disparaging remarks he made this morning in reference to Calgary player Dion Phaneuf and Phaneuf's girl friend Elisha Cuthbert, who previously had a relationship with Avery. "I am really happy to be back in Calgary, I love Canada," Avery said on camera this morning in Calgary. "I just want to comment on how it's become like a common thing in the NHL for guys to fall in love with my sloppy seconds. I don't know what that's about. Enjoy the game tonight." The hearing will take place in accordance with the NHL Constitution, for conduct "detrimental to the League or game of hockey," the NHL announced today. More details to follow. Source: tsn.ca Although his comments were rude, I wish the suspension could be lifted for this one game tonight. I know that most of the Flames would want to beat the snot out of Avery for mocking Iginla earlier on this season by calling him boring. Iginla could win against Avery in a fight anyday, but I guess tonight won't be the night that it happens. Unforntunately for Avery, he has dug himself an even deeper hole now. Next time he faces the Flames he'll be in for a rough night by having Phaneuf following him as well. I hate Avery, always have. I think he should be taught a lesson, and sadly enough I don't feel that a suspension will do justice against him. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
