Sean Avery Out In Dallas

It looks like Sean Avery's suspension is upgraded back to "forever". Avery will not be re-joining the Stars when is six game time-out is over.

Sean Avery's suspension, handed to him for comments he made about ex girlfriends, forced him into anger management classes just weeks into his first season with Dallas. When he can return to play hockey at all is in question.

However, there's no telling when Avery will even be ready to play again. He is at an undisclosed location seeking treatment through a program set up by the NHL players association. When he was suspended, Avery told the Stars he needed help dealing with anger issues.

"Sean needs to focus on his own well-being while the Stars hockey team must focus on playing hockey and competing for a playoff spot," Stars co-general manager Brett Hull said in the statement. "We all need to move forward."


Wow, who would have thought that hockey players were angry? Granted Avery is widely known to be hockey's biggest douchebag and has gone through four teams in seven years. But seriously, you have to some kind of messed up to be forced into anger management by a sport that encourages violent fights during play.
