Well,



I can't say good riddance (he is a great skater and excellent energy guy)

I can't say I don't care (see above)

I can't say that Avery is the playoff excuse and now we (I thought we weren't supposed to use we ) can make it.



I'll say travesty becuase he brings excitement to this dull team and I wish he could have figured out how to stay

I enjoyed certain parts of the way he played, but it's time to move on.

I voted travesty because there was no milder "yes" option.

But I don't know the behind the scened effect he was having on the team...so I can't say for sure.

Good player on ice, a bit crazy off the ice. If he could smarten up, he'll be a damn good checking line forward. He could be an asset but he could also be a liability as we have witnessed here. He certainly isn't a player I'd like to see the Kings facing.

Anyone think he'll sign with the Ducks or Sharks?

Saddest part is that above all that he's said and done, he can be a 20 goal scorer from the 3rd line. But his focus is always on stuff other than winning and everyone is sick of that. Maybe he'll figure things out like Tocchet did (besides the betting).

I don't like any of the poll options. I'm disappointed, but he brought it on himself and I'm not happy that he did this. Whatever, we'll move on. Avatar changed . . .

I voted good riddance, but not because I think he's a bad player. I just don't think his contributions outweighed the bad penalties and disruptive off-the-ice behavior.

Especially on the dull part! Parros the last two games has been the only thing the fans could cheer about. This team just lost a major piece of the motor in this club.
His BS finally caught up with him though. Whatever happens, I hope he goes to the east. Should make for some interesting quotes about the club in the next couple of months.

Oh you know some colorful quotes are coming from both sides.

I'd say this reflects my attitude perfectly. I love some of what Sean did. I loved his desire & energy - and the way he could really piss off the entire other team.
But I won't miss his inability to control his mouth off the ice, when it's important that he do so. I won't miss his inablilty to understand that the entire team has to pull in ONE direction - and he can't just do his own thing.

We loved ya, Sean - but it's time to go. (But leave Elisha Cuthbert here)

There is a bunch of non-Kings fans that voted, so this poll isn't really that accurate.

Cause a non-Kings fans vote goes where? Against Sean.

He is the one of the only players I could say basically gave 100% every game this season

This is my opinion, as well, and why I, too, voted for "good riddance." Between the distractions and the penalties, his negatives outweighed the points and energy that he provided. Really, those few positives are replaceable and won't come with all of the negatives.
