We understand that you hate Avery already, but don't lump him in the same category as Simon because he's not nearly as bad.

Not nearly as bad? Yes, he has never done something as blatant as Simon did, but he is well known as one of the dirtiest players in the game, which is what Simon is as well. IMO, you are either a dirty player or not, Avery is a dirty player so I put him in the same category.


dude. someone who takes a baseball bat swing at someone's neck/face is not the same as someone who will pester you (and make anti-black/anti-french canadian/cancer comments)


Well the cancer remarks were bogus, but let's not forget that Simon also made some anti-black remarks towards Mike Grier I believe. Neither one is a saint obviously, but we agree that Avery's the lesser of two evils.


we dont know they're bogus, we know he denied them. but yes, we agree that sticks to the neck are much worse than pestering the hell out of you

Yes, we do know they're bogus. Blake said he didn't hear anything. What more proof do you need?

Also, comparing Avery to Simon is laughable, at best. Simon is a guy who on multiple occasions has actively done things bordering on homicidal towards other players. Sean Avery talks trash and goads guys into fights. How you can even think about comparing the two is beyond me. Avery, to my knowledge, has never been suspended for a dirty hit.

Its not laughable when you consider what other players around the league think of them. I agree that Avery has never done anything as bad as Simon did in this case, that is not what I am arguing. What I am saying are these types of players, whether its Simon or an Avery type, have no place in the game. They are an embarrasment to the sport.

Its not just irking. He is well known as a cheap shot artist, not just a loud mouth, which is why his peers believe he is one of the dirtiest players in the game.

One example is him hitting Andrew Ladd with a punch and breaking his jaw while being restrained by an official, if that is not the definition of a cheap shot then I don't know what is.

I agree Chris Simon is out of his mind. Look at this video:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ezjt8Hx6XYo

Even for a hockey mullet that is just out of control!

Seriously, the guy has issues but I think Nolan sort of feels like they share solidarity as Native Americans who have been blackballed and been through hard times and that's why he game him these chances. Sean Avery is simply a punk. He flops, yaks, and is universally hated in the NHL. Just for his mouth, he's in a league of his own.
