Saying it doesn't have any concrete evidence, the NHL doesn't plan any action over an alleged derogatory remark in Tuesday night's NHL game between the Edmonton Oilers and Los Angeles Kings.An interesting side note to this- Scotty Bowman was on Detroit radio today and said he was told a few of the Edmonton players went after Avery when they ran into him after the game while boarding the team bus. This issue will be handled on the ice and is not over. Bowman also mentioned Avery has painted a big bullseye on his back and someone should put a big roll of tape over his mouth. Note to Detroit fans, the interview of Bowman was done by the self-appointed Wing hockey guru, and he had no clue what happened. He could not understand why the Oilers went after Avery for making the "French-Canadian" remark. update, Friday 3:22pm, via TSN,
Kings winger Sean Avery denies ever directing a racial slur at Oilers tough guy Georges Laraque in a game this week. Laraque, who is black, told reporters in Edmonton on Thursday that Avery called him a ''monkey'' during Tuesday's game in Los Angeles. ''(He) fabricated the whole thing,'' Avery said in Friday's edition of the Los Angeles Times. ''I have no idea why he would do that,'' he added. ''I heard about it after the game and was surprised.''
