from Tony Care of CBC,
While Milbury condemned Wisniewski’s action, calling it “ridiculous and immature,” he’s bothered by the notion that Avery is innocent of any wrongdoing in this case.
“He has been a pretty good player, but he’s become a caricature of a professional,” Milbury told CBCSports.ca. “It’s not good for hockey, it’s not good for the image that [the league] is trying to portray. We’re not all poster boys for this business and never will be, but this has gone on far too long with his focus on being a distraction and an agitator rather than honing his craft.
“Here we are we’re talking about Avery again, not because he made a great backhanded pass to set up the game-winning goal, but because he’s part of another unsavoury incident. It’s like watching a car wreck. You know it’s not going to be pretty but you can’t seem to turn away from it until you’ve had a look.”
