Avery and Brodeur: Let’s just say there will be no summer bonding trip together

46

Sean Avery broke his latest media boycott and said he had every intention of shaking Martin Brodeur’s hand at the end of the game, but that Brodeur breezed past him.

“I don’t know if he didn’t see me in the line,” he said. “Everyone talks about how much class I don’t have. It’s the end of a series and men go to war against each other. I guess he forgot to shake my hand.”

Said Brodeur: “I just shook everybody’s hand but one.”

  1. hahaha… oh Marty, what a class act!
    If I were at the game I would have chanted “Have Fun Golfing!”

    What a defensive stand by all the Rangers in the 3rd. If we play the Pens next they have way more offensive power, but we can totally take care of scoring goals with that D they have. I don’t really care who it is… the Rangers are a serious playoff-built team and I sense good things…

    Oh and on MSG when Avery was being interviewed in the studio he referred to Marty as “that fat guy” It was awesome.

  2. I don’t always agree with what Avery does, but he clearly held his hand put and Fatso, um, Marty snubbed him. So, does that make make Marty weird? Like when Henke “snubbed” Marty at the awards last year?

    When interviewed by John G and asked about the handshake: “everyone talks about how unclassy I am and fatso there just forgot to shake my hand I guess.” LMFAO!!!

    GO RANGERS!!!!!!!!!!! WHAT A GAME!!!

  4. Guys, I’m starting to see the offseason moves as brilliant on Sathers part…Two great well rounded centers in Gomer and Drury…
    If you think about it these two players fit into our system wonderfully. They both play a complete game and after taking time to learn Renneys system are now vital pieces to the puzzle…
    I absolutely love what I’m seeing!
    Bring on Cindy the Kid and LETS GO RANGERS!!
    Oh and a completely classless act by Baby Broduer.

  5. [“I guess fatso forgot to shake my hand…..Whatever… We outplayed him, *I* outplayed him.”]-Sean Avery

    Then my father, my brother, and I switched directly over to the Devils postgame to listen to them cry. I’m just really happy right now. What a pleasure this is. Marty looked about ready to cry. What a complete and utter *bitch*.

    I’ve said all season that Brent Sutter was a better coach than Tom Renney, and *I was wrong*. Sutter was still juggling lines and grasping at straws through this game, our men were set from the get go.

    Enjoy this feeling guys, it is a great one.

    Brodeur chokes again. he doesn’t have the stomach for it. actually, he has too much stomach, right Fatso?

  7. I don’t know why ESPN put that quote on their site…the direct quote was: “Everyone talks about how classy, unclassy I am, and fatso there just forgot to shake my hand I guess?”

    HAHAHAHA!

  8. Just watching MSGNY, and they were showing some devils reactions. It is still great that none of the Devils give the Rangers credit. The reaction was just like close games bad turnovers and lucky bounces.

    Rangers outplayed them, outcoached them, and outclassed them.

  9. Mark, exactly. None of them have it in them to say “they beat us”…. they will take it to the grave that “they shot themselves in the foot”…pathetic.

  10. reginald dunlop on

    once again inconsistent officiating……..why was no penalty called when callahan got hit without puck at blue line in first period but dubinsky gets called for it in second??????? plus on devils dump in air into zone offsides across blueline and faceoff at the dot???? puck dumped from centre ice……think the linesmen missed a bunch of offsides in game 4 and same two tonight…….blown call…faceoff shouldve been at least at centre ice…..and how was madden onside on breakaway …penalty shot??????? better not bite us in next round……kudos to coach for not going bonkers, reflects on teams ability to handle it in stride….perfect coach for this team…..where are all those calling for him to get canned????? that’s why he is coaching and you are cheering……let’s go rangers

  11. They got bad breaks? You mean like when they scored off Dubi’s face? Or Staal’s skate? What a bunch of jackasses.

    Go Rangers!

  12. Fischler had it right. Brodeur hasn’t been good in the playoffs since 2003. Look at the stats.

    2004 Lost 1st round 4-1 against the Flyers
    2006 beat a bad Rangers team then got smoked by Carolina in 5 games.
    2007 Barely beat Tampa (only because Holmqvist was worse) then got owned in 5 by Ottawa.

    Theres a new #30 in town and his name is Henrik Lundqvist.

  13. fatty arbuckle--shaky in goal on

    it has more to do with the poor coaching of Sutter. he should have used Pandolfo to shadow Jagr like they used to quite successfully in past seasons. Pandolfo has no other skill, so he is just a waste to have out there if he is not playing that role. and using Zubrus to play that role just takes him away from trying to score. so, sutter’s poor strategy ruined 2 lines.

    also, debbie players not really crowding Henrik in the crease.

    so, Sutter showed a lot of rookie coach mistakes

  14. “once again inconsistent officiating……..why was no penalty called when callahan got hit without puck at blue line in first period but dubinsky gets called for it in second??????? plus on devils dump in air into zone offsides across blueline and faceoff at the dot???? puck dumped from centre ice……think the linesmen missed a bunch of offsides in game 4 and same two tonight…….blown call…faceoff shouldve been at least at centre ice…..and how was madden onside on breakaway …penalty shot??????? better not bite us in next round……kudos to coach for not going bonkers, reflects on teams ability to handle it in stride….perfect coach for this team…..where are all those calling for him to get canned????? that’s why he is coaching and you are cheering……let’s go rangers”

    dude the reffing was fine tonight. I honestly didn’t see anything that I was like OMG I CAN’T BELIEVE THAT. They let them play to an extent but I thought they did a pretty solid job. Dubinsky deserved the call where Callahan made a move at the puck so that was a clean hit. I’m not even gonna talk about the other ones because you might think its offside on TV but the linesman are right more times than not.

  15. Screw Brodeur…hes washed up. He is a mediocre goaltender without the world class defensemen that gave the devils 3 Cups.

    time to hang it up Marty…go back to your sister in law.

  16. Just got back from Newark. You should have seen the Devils fans pouring out of the arena after the empty net goal. It was pathetic.

    Weekes hung at the back of the handshake line, hugging every Ranger that passed. Very classy move on his part. Gomez went over to the Devils’ bench and shook hands with their people, as did Shanahan.

    Rangers fans stayed until every player left the ice, chanting and cheering. Nice acknowledgement of the crowd by Jagr and Lundqvist as they headed back into the tunnel.

  17. Just got back from the game. Great showing by the Ranger fans at the pebble. And good work by the Rangers saluting the fans, especially Hank and Jagr.

    We noticed the snub by Fatty during handshakes. What a class-less jackass.

    Great win tonight! Bring on Cindy and the Pens!

  18. Sect 340, Just saw your post. Agreed about Weekes – at least someone on that team had some class. How sad are the devil fans. We had a few guys behind us screaming Devil’s chants all night and the other dopes sat on their hands while the ranger fans in that section screamed louder. It was a thing of beauty. Let’s go Rangers

  19. blacks4 (steve trac) on

    Wow, Sam said the Devils had the lead for only 15 minutes in the entire series. Like all of you, I agree that Weekes is a class guy and that was great of him to be excited for the Rags players. What does he care about NJ? He gets paid to sit on a bench…

  20. talkin 'bout malkin on

    Pens will czech Jagr until he pouts from all the boos.

    and I will play better this time. I did not play well in the 4 games at MSG this year, so I have plenty to prove.

    and don’t call him Cindy. surely you know better. don’t call him Shirley either

  21. True Fans Bleed RW&B on

    Screw brodeur. Everyone that says he’s the best goalie ever doesn’t really understand hockey. Just because you have the stats doesn’t mean you earned them alone. Hasek and Roy didn’t have the luxury of playing on teams that trapped, they still had Better numbers too. So be it. Marty’s the biggest whiner and now also the sorest loser, come down and get your trophy brodeur, you big fat baby.

  22. After watching the interview John Giannone with Sean Avery, all I have to say is SATHER RE-SIGN AVERY OR ELSE RESIGN IN JULY. I am glad Avery stuck it to the canadian hockey media jerks (Don Cherry, Ron Mclean, Bob Mackenzie, Darren Pang, & all the jerks at TSN )for blowing the Avery screening Brodeur call out of proportion. A friend of mine who happens to be a Devil fan thought of the Avery incident as very creative and that the NHL looked like fools for creating rules during the playoffs.

    Also, it was pretty cool seeing Kevin Weekes (who actually looked like he was celebrating with the Rangers )shaking his former mates hands and Im sure Rachunek would of done the same.

  23. Avery is a disgrace, any player who makes personal attacks on another player does not belong in this sport.

  24. One more whiner off to play golf for the summer…hopefully the Pens will be next so we can send the whiner Crosby off for an early summer holiday too..!!

    If the Habs and Flyers win through, i presume we get the Pens?

  25. I think that the lines have crossed on these two franchises. The Devils have one of the thinnest list of legit prospects in the league(see hockeyfuture.com). The fan base is weak. The players are whinning. Do you think any elite UFA’s want in??? Sorry Lou…It’s over.

  26. “I’ve said all season that Brent Sutter was a better coach than Tom Renney, and I was wrong. Sutter was still juggling lines and grasping at straws through this game, our men were set from the get go.”

    :sigh: It was so worth ‘stopping by’ here this a.m. You’ve turned a corner salty. congrats.

    What a great feeling it is this a.m. Had a few too many after the game, but its a little easier to deal with. Everyone needs to be rockin a Rangers logo somewhere today.

    1pm wash/phi. If phi wraps it up, do we see a schedule tonight? I’m guessing thursday night will be game 1.

    have a good weekend all. I’m headed down the shore for my bachelor party tonight. Good times.

  27. Ruddy, funny thing is if you Avery was on your pathetic Debbies, you’d love em…don’t give me that crap…
    BTW enjoy your summer…
    LGR!!!

  28. While you are waiting on hockey…Manchester United plays at 10am on Fox Soccer Channel. If you want to see the best club team in the world and the best player in the world.

  29. True Fans Bleed RW&B on

    Rudder, go cry with brodeur and the other devils fans. Brodeurs diving, whining, and spears to players groin are as big a disgrace to the sport. You and your teams whining about officiating are also a disgrace. You were outplayed and outclassed, son. This is RANGERS LEGION!

  30. formerly formerlyjagrforgovernor on

    Did anyone else notice:

    After the Debbies first goal, there was Ranger fan giving them two birds from the front row?

    Also, as the Rangers skated off the ice with a 5-3 win, there was one lone Devils fan who stayed near the exit to give the boys in blue the finger.

    I just thought it was funny that MSG caught both….

  31. Haha Rangers. Good luck trying to win the cup. You beat the Devils thats not saying much. Oh and Averys a scumbag and I dont know why anyone would shake that assholes hand hes a disgrace to the NHL.

  32. nothing better then seeing the crybaby devils fan tell us how avery is an a-hole after just watching the coach smash a stick over the boards, marty diving..marty not shaking hands…

    devils fans are a bunch of losers, i was desperately trying to get rid of a pair of tickets yesterday and none of the devils fans i work with would take them…instead of getting behind their team they gave us on them….horrible.

    glad it’s over, now we take a few days and focus on who is next.

  33. Don’t worry Devils fans it will only be a few months before you guys have PSEG POWERPLAYS back. HAHA what a joke.

  34. Brodeur is a classless jackass. Always has been always will be he torpeded two marriages by having an affair with his sister in law yet he continues to get a pass and be called classy.

  35. I couldn’t believe how loud the Ranger fans were at the pebble last night! It was like a big dog peeing on a little dog.
    Devils might as well sell the franchise. Their done!!

  36. ….Man U rescued a point making the game at Chelsea a pretty interesting one. If they lose that game and both teams win out i think they win on goal difference.

    DB COOPER, where is the cash stashed?

  37. Brodeur showed just how low class and no class he is. At least when Billy Smith passed on the handshake at the end of a series, he had the “decency” not to shake any hands.

  38. Beyond the Avery snub, Marty doesn’t even look people in the eye when he shakes their hand. No real man shakes hands that way. I’ll bet if he had won this series he would have had an entirely different attitude. But honestly I didn’t think too much of the snub. I expected it. Marty is a big baby!
