The Toronto Sun’s Mike Zeisberger on the sort of behavior that would make Sean Avery an NYC sports radio pariah…if anyone besides Steve Somers were paying attention.
Wade Belak predicts it is only a matter of time before Sean Avery gets seriously clocked.
Citing Avery’s pre-game tomfoolery Saturday night as yet another example of why the instigator rule should be scuttled, Belak warns that the New York Rangers agitator is going to pay the price for his antics.
“He’s pissing guys off,” Belak said yesterday. “He’ll bring harm to himself and not too many guys around the league are going to be sad to see it.
“If he keeps this up, someone is going to kill him. One day he’s going to say something the wrong way and he’ll be clubbed.
“And I’m not saying it will be by me, either.”
Belak said the instigator rule allows small superpests such as Avery to get away with his tactics without the fear of retribution.
“The league should do something, especially with that warmup crap,” Belak said. “The instigator rule protects guys like that. He’ll fight little guys like Darcy but you’ll never see him pick on bigger guys like me and then drop the gloves.”
Belak rejects the notion making the rounds that there is no difference between Tucker and Avery.
“Darcy’s an agitator but he doesn’t say the type of personal stuff about your family that Avery does,” Belak said. “It’s ridiculous. If (Avery) ever starts chirping about my family like that, he’ll get a stick over the head.”

Word up in Toronto is that Mr Avery made choice remarks concerning Jason Blake’s recent cancer diagnosis in the pre-game skate. The former Mr Elisha Cuthbert has class to spare now that he’s a single fella.
“Word up in Toronto” is that the Blake story is untrue and the reporter is getting sued for libel.
Stop the hypocrisy… Tucker is no different than Avery, except that Avery is a better hockey player. If Avery was a free agent, the Leafs would be first in line for his services.
You know it’s true.
