  1. My question to everyone is this. Who is at fault here, Sean Avery, or all of the teams that continue to sign someone that has a 90% chance of screwing your team over with some selfish act?

    Avery is who he is, teams need to realize this and figure out that he is a risk. If a team wants to risk signing him, that’s fine. But don’t complain and act offended when something happens.

  2. Paul: You’re absolutely correct. In fact, Brett Hull should be fired for signing Avery because clearly he forgot to consult his ever-perfect crystal ball just before handing him the contract, what could he have been thinking?
