Sean Avery: The best of the pests

Call him whatever you want but Sean Avery produces, agitates and without a doubt is "the straw that stirs the drink" in New York.

I'm not sure who said it, or if it was even said, but it seems as though someone has twisted his words and once again everyone is pointing the finger at Sean.

If you ask me, I'd say that Sean is a pest, without a doubt. If you ask the Leaf players, they'd tell you that they would like to play the Rangers more often because that way at the end of the game all the focus would be on Avery and not Toronto’s poor defensive play.

Sean Avery could be considered a good distraction for some teams.
