Couldn't agree more. Not many players have the balls to bring that to the table.

And these guys weren't dirty, either, which makes the hatred all the more mysterious. Guys like Cooke and Simon go under the radar as they try to injure everyone in sight, but Avery inventively screening a goaltender and pointing out that losers settle for his ex-girlfriends make him an irredeemably baleful person.
