Tom Gulitti did a great job conveying the wisdom of Sean Avery tonight.
Some points made:
-Avery called Clarkson "a bonehead minor leaguer" after the game and called Brodeur, "Marty the diver", a reference to the goaltender's first period diving penalty. "I don't even know who this guy is, why am I talking to him," Avery said of Clarkson. "We're not friends. It's not an (expletive) secret. We're getting ready for a game and we go to war."
First of all, anyone who saw Clarkie's goal Friday night...has Avery ever scored a goal that nice? And why are you talking to him? I don't know ass-job...you started the conversation! Do you have soap opera level amnesia?
-When asked if Brodeur said anything back to him, Avery said, "I can't understand a word he says with his accent."
C'mon Sean, is that Jersey twang Marty speaks in English with baffling you? Watch some Sopranos DVDs and you'll figure it out.
So, what was David Clarkson's response?
-Clarkson played it diplomatic. "We both kind of play the same way, hit hard and get in other guy's face," he said. "That's how he is. He's going to try to get under my skin before the game and other guys, just like I do."
Aw Yeah, David's a soulja. He's smart enough to figure out that he's pretty much Sean, but with, you know, an offensive game?
Hey, guess who else Sean decided to take on...
-Before one first period faceoff, Avery lined up across from Zach Parise and yapped in his ear for what seemed like an eternity. "I asked him to fight a couple of times," Avery admitted. When an incredulous reporter questioned that he would challenge Parise, who has never had an NHL fight, Avery replied, "Is that his name?"
Yeah Sean, you saw the back of his jersey enough tonight...
Seriously, Sean...you joking about not knowing who Parise is...is that a thing? That's like when Brian and Stewie from Family Guy called Scrubs unfunny at the Emmys.
THE ZACH's response?
-Parise also said he ignored Avery. "He wanted to fight me," he said. "He told me to, 'make a statement.' I just ignored him. It's all about him. It's too bad because he can be a pretty good player."
Good boy Zach.
Aaah, it's good to hate the Rag$ again!.
