Sean Avery: meltdown 2006 or emerges 2006?

from ALL BS @ TSC today:

>>Crawford: Definately runs his practice different than AM. The guy looks totally focused and will not put up with any crap. He does not come off as a ***** though. He just seems to just be very set on making sure things are done 100% correct. He comes across as a teacher. I think that he is going to be very good for the group we have coming in. I think he will get alot out of our vets and will properly bring the kids along.
<<<<

Between Crawford "not putting up with any crap"and Lombardi repeatedly and repeatedly talking about "making better people and hockey players" , one wonders what this type of management / handling will do for Avery? Not to mention the presence of guys like McCauley, Thornton and Blake in the room.

It will be all or nothing with Sean. Either he bucks the system and he's gone within a month, or he will reach his potential as a hockey player...nothing in between.

I hope it's the latter. Sean's potential as a hockey player is pretty damn good, if someone can get that out of him. Gonna be interesting.

I really hope Crow puts the smack down, and you'd have to think that a guy w/a ring on his finger and a widely-respected rep like him would give Aves more pause than Murray did; as well as a more vocal, active and visionary GM as DL. I think Avery was a wonderful player for large parts of last season, but he's gotta buy into the team concept in and out of the LR and stay out of the box more. I agree that he's got two different paths- either becoming a caricature/joke or turning into a pretty damn good consistent performer- I really, really hope it's the second.

If Avery doesn't get his act together, he's a goner. Some team will take a chance on him.

believe me, there are enough teammates from 05-06 who have already expressed their disdain for Avery, so the leash will be so tight that he will be gasping for breath the minute he pisses ANYONE off.

And, my fervent hope is that he's eventually dealt to Siberia for one of Uwe Krupp's sled dogs.

why not Sergei Krivokrasov or Maxim Kuznetsov for that matter?

I forgot how blessed life was to not hear an announcer blurt: KREEVA-KRASOFF for the past few years.

I heard his name correctly pronounced ONCE in his 7+ years, yet butchered over 500 times. The worst part about it, was that Nick Nickson used to say "my favorite player name to say is KREEVA-KRASOFF!"

now everyone say:

Krih-VOK-Ra-Soff.

I love that guy. I had him on my 2nd line on the Kings in NHL 2002.

What is the point of keeping him around? Out with the old, in with the new.


Except Blake.

I don't like Avery, but I wouldn't freak out if he came back. He'll blow his chance anyway and get dealt, as hopefully things can stay in-house this time.

Well first of all Avery was exciting last year. He just takes to many damn penaltys and talks to much smack.

This might be a last chance for him in the NHL to. Remember if he ****s it up again this year how many takers will there be out there for him?
Alot of teams wont want to take the chance if he keeps costing his team games.

I really hope he can come and play smart. Crawford will lay down the smack early.

I really think he can really do well. New coach.
