either way you call it, it was a penalty, it was stupid, and it's not what this team is about.

What makes Sean Avery a great player is when he has people doing that to him. thats when hes a difference maker...when hes driving the opposition ballistic because of his antics. when hes taking penalties like that, its just stupid and hurts the team. Sean hasn't been a good player for us all year, hes been horrible with his bad turnovers, and his general vanilla play.

people want to blame Torts for this, but i call a big ole BS on that one, because whenever sean plays his game, Torts has nothing but praise for him. when sean is a difference maker, when he goes and makes things happen, when he plays like he did against dallas a while back (maybe a year or 2 ago?) thats when sean avery earns his money.

he has it in him to be a truly unique player, an asset. as it stands now, he's a 4th liner that doesnt bring much that can't be found elsewhere. id rather have Christensen in the lineup for shootouts than Avery nowadays, and thats not a good thing.
