Could Sean Avery Destroy Hockey and Civilization?*

Interesting post by James Mirtle about whether or not a favorite move of Sean Avery's will soon be outlawed by the League.

Money quote:

If it's a part of the game, it is for everyone, and this isn't anything anyone wants to be made a widespread phenomenon. Imagine seeing this in front of the net on every power play?

For one, it's a dangerous tactic to be waving the lumber around that close to another athlete's face, and more importantly, it's an antic that detracts from the quality of the game being played.

In what way is it fair to a goaltender? This is a play that redefines "unsportsmanlike."

What do you think?
