Avery got punished for doing what he did outside the context of a game. It was also premediated and done very publicly and purposefully to cause a stir and embarassment not only to another hockey player, but also a woman who has nothing to do with hockey. This event is completely different. It happens all the time, just not in full view of a camera.

It is funny how some of the posters are saying that Wiz shouldn't be suspended. If Avery did that too somebody else everyone would scream for a suspension. Wiz should be suspended for that gesture, there is no place in Hockey for that. Avery said sloppy seconds and the NHL threw him to the wolves.

Lucky the ref didn't see it, he could have gotten a gros misconduct

That's actually a valid point. I can't stand Avery, but the NHL has to be consistent. Otherwise it's just asking for Avery to do something even more over the top next time they play.

QFT. Finally some wisdom.

Anyone who doesn't get this needs help.

It shouldn't be a suspension-worthy offense, but neither should a throat slash. Precedent is precedent, Wisniewski has to get a game.

I don't get why people think it's so hilarious though. Seriously? I've seen and heard more creative insults from 10 year olds.

EDIT: Oh wait, I get it! He's calling Avery gay!! I take it back, that is SO EPIC!

True. Over-regulation will, however.

Really? I've noticed more people coming to Avery's aide on HF than anything else. Most posters here feel the sloppy seconds fiasco was way overblown, and if Avery were to do something similar to what Wiz did, I don't know if most posters would sincerely believe he SHOULD be suspended.

Avery being suspended for his gesture was wrong, and suspending Wisniewski for this would be wrong. Because Avery WAS suspended though doesn't mean Wiz should be, the NHL already made one error, the way to correct it isn't to make another very similar one.

Let's not also forget that it was a blatantly homophobic taunt. If someone made ape motions at a black player no one would defend him. I know homophobia tends to run rampant in certain settings (including HFBoards), but that doesn't make it ok.

And, according to at least a few here, we had better have cameras EVERWHERE to catch these horrrrible actions and PUNISH the perpetrators! More suspensions!

An NHL of no cursing, no anger, no spontaneous emotion, no hard hitting, no fighting.

Who are these people and where did they come from?!
