Mini Article on Sean Avery from bleacher report who named the most hated NHL players from each decade.

2001-2010—Sean Avery

Honorable Mention: Todd Bertuzzi, Matt Cooke, Chris Simon, Chris Pronger, and Derian Hatcher

Quite possibly one of the most unlikable people on the face of the planet, Sean Avery was a thorn in your side on and off the ice. Avery has never been shy about getting in front of a camera and shooting his mouth off. His public service efforts are commendable, but they are the only time any camera is on him these days.

Avery is just as famous for his "sloppy seconds" comment as he is for the NHL rule modification that he forced league officials to make. Avery basically talked himself out of the league after his final two stops in New York and Dallas. The headache outweighed whatever it was Avery brought to the table, and he is now in NHL exile.
