Avery is one aggravating little jerk but he can also be a sparkplug, he's seems to have ignited the Rangers since he came back in the lineup. As long as he doesn't take any stupid penalties then he can be an asset. Tonite against my Leafs, I hope he gets into it with Sideshow Bob (Tucker) and lays a beating on him, as much as I cheer for the Leafs, Tucker is just a waste of a roster position and money, but that's just my demented opinion.
Tucker's a 4 mil guy. the real problem with him is he has to learn to keep his mouth shut, he whines when he gets hit, he whines to the refs, he is a very intense player no doubt about it but it's just the way that he acts on the ice that rubs me the wrong way. He can be a great asset and I know that there are a number of teams that would want him in the lineup.
i love the way he plays but i dont have much respect for him because i watched the toronto-devil series around 10 years ago and the devs were hitting him all over the ice, holik, stevens, daneyko, arnott, mckay and peluso and when toronto was out of the game he started a fight with patrick elias. that was bad
There was an article in today's Toronto Sun about how every team is wanting to get a hold of Avery and wring his neck. He starts chucking garbage but takes it to the next level when he starts talking about everyone's families and with the aggressor rule in place guys are backing off from starting fights with him.
THEY DONT LET THE PLAYERS POLICE THE ICE ANYMORE SO YOU GOT GUYS LIKE AVERY GOING AFTER THE OTHER TEAMS STAR PLAYER, YOU GOT TUCKER START THROWING PUNCHES AT PATRICK ELIAS. THEY GOTTA GO BACK TO THE WAY IT USED TO BE, YOU TOUCH GRETZKY YOU GET SEMENKO, YOU TOUCH BOBBY CLARKE YOU GET DAVE SCULTZ ETC...BUT TALKING ABOUT GUYS FAMILIES IS UNCALLED FOR, HE MUST HAVE BEEN WATCHING REGGIE DUNLOP IN SLAP SHOT
