Well it’s the one-year anniversary of when our (former) co-GM’s, Brett “Ambassador of Fun” Hull and Les Jackson signed mega-loser, Sean Avery. Nobody really wants to remember that he ever was a Star, so I kind of just want to forget about it.
Problem is, it’s hard to forget a sloppy-seconds comment like the one Avery said. No one’s ever gonna forget that, as hard as we try.
The thing is, is that it never should have happened in the first place. I know Hull was friendly with Avery, but he never should have signed a guy who doesn’t fit the definition of a Dallas Star. This is a classy organization, and Avery is a classless player. It doesn’t fit. This franchise may be permanently scarred because of one stupid move. It’s too bad it had to end up costing us the season.
So, look at it in a positive way: Sean Avery can always be a reminder that we all make mistakes. Right? 🙂
