Avery tells it like it is

Love him or hate him, you gotta love Sean Avery’s honesty.

William Houston in the Globe and Mail reports Avery, on CBC’s The Hour, offered a candid assessment of Don Cherry:

 “He’s a staple as far as Canadian hockey goes,” Avery said. “And I grew up watching Coach’s Corner, and he serves a purpose.

“But he really does not know shit about hockey.

“He knows, like, unnecessary facts about putting Sears catalogues on your shin pads.”

“He says a lot of things,” continued Avery. “He calls people by their wrong names. And it’s just, like, enough of this guy.” 

• When the Canadiens are in, school’s out. Dave Stubbs reports from St. Jovite.

• Georges Laraque on his recovery from an injury he won’t discuss.

• NHL tough guys laud Laraque

• Marc De Foy of the Journal de Montréal on the battle for fourth-line spots

• Mathias Brunet of La Presse on Jacques Lemaire and the Minnesota Wild, who are at the Bell Centre tomorrow. 

•  Could this be The Year?
