The Los Angeles Kings are already getting some attention before the season’s start, just not the type they were likely looking for.
Avery told the Canadian sports television network that he thought the Coyotes player delivered a “clean hit.” He added: “I think it was typical of most French guys in our league with a visor on, running around and playing tough and not back anything up.
“I’d think if a guy like Brett Hull was coming up the middle, somebody probably wouldn’t have stepped up and hit him, but like I said, a typical move from a guy wearing a visor that certainly doesn’t like to get scratched at all.” Gauthier was born in Montreal. Roenick is from Boston and Avery from Pickering, Ontario.
Roenick, meanwhile, was not done.”I’ve seen that Canadians are saying that I’m complaining and whining because I got hit hard,” Roenick told The Times. “But I have gotten hit hard many, many, many times, probably more so than they have ever been hit. They just love to complain about me because I’m an American who gets more press than their Canadian players.
“They can whine about me all they want. The fact of the matter is the need for respect for everybody, not just me. I’m sure if Joe Sakic got hit the way I got hit and said the same thing I did, Canadians wouldn’t be sitting there saying Joe was complaining.”
Roenick will miss the rest of the preseason and is listed as day-to-day. The incident was the 11th reported concussion of Roenick’s career.
I just like it when people make fun of french canadians.
I know it is hard for some of the people not from the northeast area of the US to understand this but French Canadians suck… They suck hard. Every few years Quebec says they want to form their own country and it turns into a big fight.
Seriously though they should just let them go. Because then they can take the annoying french off of the signs in Canada. I am not one of those guys that just hate the French for the sake of hating the French or because it is the red blooded American thing to do. Granted they basically blew Hitler and even fingered him in the ass because he wanted it. But why should I hate a whole country of people for something that happened half a century ago?
Now French Canadians on the other hand… They could be the most annoying people on the face of the earth. Even ahead of soccer mom’s that drive huge ass SUV’s while talking on the cell phone and almost running me off of the road.
In fact I would rate the annoying scale as follows
1) French Canadians
2) Soccer Moms w/suv, cellphone, and can’t drive worth a shit
3) People that say that can’t speak a language then all of a sudden when something is not going their way or they can take advantage of something speak that language perfectly
4)People on the far right (ie;Ann Coulter)
5) NASCAR fans
6)American Idol fans
7) People that push their personal beliefs onto you… be it Christians, vegans, swingers, Elvis fans….
People that find the following funny: Ashton Kutcher, Andy Milonakious, Napolean Dynamite, Blue Collar Comedy, and Futurama.
I think I will stop there… I need to shower… Damn work….
