December 03, 2008 - 9:49 am

Don'€™t know who Sean Avery is? Well, apparently he REALLY wants you to know who he is. Before we get to what he said, lets introduce you to Mr. Avery. His wikipedia bio and, for your viewing pleasure, a quick video below courtesy of SportsCentre in Canada (TSN). Now that you know Avery. This is what he had to say this past Tuesday: A few thoughts come to mind after watching and listening to these comments:

  • Premeditated?
  • This is great for the NHL because everyone is talking about these comments today in the US and Canada. The most pub since Wayne Gretzky's wife got in trouble for gambling.
So what did our resident hockey experts on WEEI have to say about Sean Avery? Well, Dale Arnold described Avery as a '€œlunkhead'€ and as someone you didn'€™t want on your team. Dale also believes that Avery will only get a one or two game suspension from the NHL after he meets with the Commissioner.  Dale was fired up this morning, so take a listen the Dale & Holley Show as they give their thoughts and opinions on Sean Avery'€™s comments. Dale compared Avery to former NHL player Ken Linsemen. Finally, Dale & Michael talked about  pro teams and leagues getting '€œtough'€ on athletes who are not behaving and acting properly. How will this situation play out? This from Jaime Aron, AP Sports Writer, '€œAvery was suspended indefinitely by commissioner Gary Bettman for making "inappropriate public comments, not pertaining to the game." The punishment came down only hours after Avery used a crude term about his former girlfriends now dating other hockey players. Avery missed the Dallas Stars' game against the Calgary Flames on Tuesday night. Because terms won't be settled until Avery meets with Bettman, likely in New York, he almost certainly will be out again Wednesday night when the Stars play in Edmonton.'€œ  CLICK HERE for the complete AP Story on Avery and his comments.
