Yes Sean Avery is the poster boy for rude ,crude , outrageous comments. But the NHL's appointed "next one" conduct on the ice is becoming just as detrimental to the game. The league looks to punish off ice idiots like Avery, yet turns a blind eye to Sidneys constant whining at every single whistle, Crosby has somehow obtained Wayne Gretzky status in the eyes of the NHL who use his face to promote everything. Not only is Crosby not in Gretzky's league it can easily be argued that he isn't even the best player on his team let alone league. In his years in the NHL he has lead the league in scoring once. Yet he is allowed to cross check anyone who shadows him. Don't get me wrong Sidney Crosby is an elite player, and before his time is done he will warrant a spot in the Hockey Hall of Fame, however he should not be the NHL's poster boy. His constant whining to the referees is an act that is growing old fast. Watch a Penguins game with an objective eye, watch at the end of everyone of #87's shift that ends in a whistle and watch him go to the ref to complain about some injustice he has suffered, enough already start giving him a delay of game penalty, Sean Avery certainly would get one. As far as Avery goes the suspension is a joke, everyone knows that Averys a loose cannon who says and does stupid things, what he said hardly warrants a suspension. Oh by the way all Sids whining couldnt get him a win tonight and had his cross check on Colton Orr because Crys-baby was upset that Orr actually shadowed him , he would have been in the box rather on the ice to set up the Pens first goal, they wouldn't have even gotten a point in the game . And as long as I'm venting here's another real detriment to the game, Don "have another donut" Koharski, what an awful ref ! Wow imagine if the Rangers lost how mad I'd be !
