I don't think it was a sucker punch, it was still dirty nonetheless. Smid wanted a fight, Avery wouldn't give it to him until he started to skate away. Apparently, Avery also was saying how they'd fight next shift, etc. To use those tactics to get an upperhand in a fight is lame. I wish Smid just took the instigator and pummelled the **** out of Avery, he's probably wishing he did too.

What I find even more disgusting is the Rangers reaction to Smid's concussion.

"I guess he learned his lesson"

reply to someone that thought Smid was a bit of a cupcake: "More like a scrambled egg...."

Gregor has stated that Oil will recall Jacques tomorrow. Hopefully this is not the only Baron on that flight.

Can't see how that would be possible unless they want to make it THAT obvious that we're trying to finish last. Dressing only 5 defensemen with the state our defense is already in would be a public announcement of their intentions.

Petiot for sure would be a callup if I was in charge and the 2nd would be Chorney/Motin/Plante.
Petiot cant even crack the AHL line up right now, he must of lost his confidence...I would call up Plante or Belle..

Problem is that when Smid attacks him Avery turtles and avoids taking any punches. Smid gets two and ten minimum. In turn he becomes the predator and looks like the undisciplined idiot in a lot of unbiased eyes.

I wouldn't be suprised if Avery goaded him into the fight and when Smid drops his gloves and goes after him Avery avoids the fight or just ties Smid up and the Rags teammates rush in to his rescue.

We have all seen Avery goad players into dropping their gloves and making them look foolish. When people suggest that Smid should have kept his guard up and forgot about the play taking place he is playing Avery's game. It was a sabotage. He was fulfilling his job out there instead of losing his focus to a coward. Sure, he payed the price for straying eye contact to focus on the actual play at hand. But the cheapshot was unprovoked and there is no reason Smid should be to blame here. At all.

These types of actions are unprofessional and bad for both the reputation and the game. If they think Wishniewski's suggestion was bad for the audience. What does this suggest or imply to it's viewers and there belief in the on ice conduct and etiquette. Chasing players and punching them with unprovoked malice are actions that should be condoned. That is the message this sends. Players should be more concerned about predators then the actual play at hand. This is a distraction to the players and a danger to their health. Purely shameful that their has been no discipline to follow.

Avery is re-offender. He is constantly taking liberties on other players. Not just Smid. He has the credibility of a convicted sexual predator testifying in a sexual assault case. The fact that he laughs at the situation shows his total disrespect for both the rules and its authorities. Including his on ice opponents. NHL needs to enforce a code of dignity here.

Peckham was on the ice for the next shift. It was a T.V. timeout. He didn't leave the bench to pursue Avery. He was already on the ice. If the NHL tried to discipline Peckham, it would be an appeal that would easily be overturned. It is in their better judgement that nothing is handed down to him. I think he probably injured his wrist further in the tussle he had with Boyle.

If Smid is considered our second best defense, it is irrelevant who is brought up - we are junk.

Please don't give Avery any credit - we were well on the way to that pick prior to yesterday's game. Have you seen our defense? The first time Smid actually connects with a hit it's his face to a fist...

It was more cowardly than lame. He was basically getting challenged by someone bigger than him and did what he could do to win the fight. It seemed like someone getting bullied at school, so instead of figting and getting beat up, he suckered him and then ran behind the teacher. From Avery's point of view, it was either that or get his ass kicked in a fair fight.

Smid can almost be considered lucky that he gets a break from this team.

Why haven't we already called up another player? I thought we had an extra spot when we put JDD on waivers.

Jacques. Conditioning stints use a roster spot to prevent people avoiding waivers to get guys playing time.

Thanks for that video. Had a bad day and that is always a treat to watch.
Now, when does Kane play against Mr. Burrows?

He hasn't even skimmed his potential. His prime is still ahead of him. We need to lock this guy up - and fast.

Irony incorporated.

Call me crazy but standing up for our players in an attempt to limit how much we get targeted and injured has its obvious consequences.

Namely two players getting injured here.


Lets rewind this. Smid gets into it with Avery because he's concerned that Fraser might get hurt by a routine clean check along the boards the type of which Fraser would have experienced a 1000 times in his career.

Smid tries to fight Avery, gets KTFO, gets a concussion, Theo then defends Smid's honor by breaking a wrist punching anything in sight, Stortini trading knuckles and banged up and meanwhile Fraser is fine and always was.

Something wrong with this script.

I thought we had Souray partings...

Did the Ducks waive Sheldon Brookbank this year? I wonder if they would do it again, he's not the worst choice in a pinch.

Smid isn't a big loss but Pecks is a good defender.

I don't think Peckham and Smid would've been the difference between last place and not last place. Belle should get a shot.

Reactions are always the consequence of one's own lack of actions. A precedent should have been set a lot sooner instead of Brule being the only one attempting to play physical out there.

Wrong choice of words. I'd rather say it's already a flat out gongshow.

If nothing else, he's been playing very well and providing an impressive physical element.

Thats not all the Ranger's fans reactions. Just the ******** ones.

There are also posts like this, about their player speaking out to the media against Avery, who many thought crossed the line.

"I find it very interesting that many of those who could care less whether Avery violated any kind of "code" with his actions are the same ones who are most up in arms at EC's violation of the "code" with his comments"
