Immature And Suspended

Anna Wintour's summer boytoy, Sean Avery, has been suspended from the NHL on the spot, following some douchebag comments he made to reporters before his game in Calgary last night. He called his ex-girlfriend, Elisha Cuthbert, 'sloppy seconds'. She must love that remark. Elisha is now dating Calgary Flame, Dino Phanuef. It is such old news too.

The best thing they could have done would have been to leave him on the ice. He would have been punished appropriately. Suspending him is the NHL's way of stopping what could have been the start of something big. Once players start getting personal in the press, all hell would break loose. In all sports. Players calling out who slept with whose wife? So and so is gay. Etc. Would be exciting soundbytes, but way too messy. The NHL is right at shutting Avery up. And fast. I will be surprised if he skates in the NHL again. He is currently the most hated man in hockey. NOT ONE teammate or league mate is coming to his defence today. No one.

Elisha looks much happier here with Dino.

After the National Hockey League suspended him for "inappropriate public comments," Avery -- who served as an intern at Vogue this past year -- now has to meet with Commissioner Gary Bettman, who will determine any additional penalty.

"I completely support the league's decision to suspend Sean Avery," Stars owner Tom Hicks said in a statement. "Had the league not have suspended him, the Dallas Stars would have. This organization will not tolerate such behavior, especially from a member of our hockey team. We hold our team to a higher standard and will continue to do so."
