Avery gives best interview ever; calls Brodeur “fatso”
I highly recommend you watch the replay of Game 5 on MSG, if only for the post game show featuring John Giannone’s interview of Sean Avery. Some gems from the interview
In response to whether the Devils were targeting him, Avery said, “Guys like Clarkson, who’s not much of a player, and really is not that effective. He was trying to play with me, and we know he can’t.”
On how much the Rangers physical play impacted Brodeur, Avery said, “I think he probably did it to himself more than anything. I think, you know, if you watch the games, he dove and was out of position a lot. It’s just us playing hard and playing hockey.”
On whether he was surprised that Brodeur didn’t want to shake his hand, Avery offered this gem, “Well, everyone talks about how classy or un-classy I am, and fatso there just forgot to shake my hand I guess. . . We outplayed him. I outplayed him. We’re going to the second round.”

He has been a Rangers fan for as long as he can remember, although, in the interest of full disclosure, there was a time during the 1993 playoffs when he vaguely remembers cheering for Pierre Turgeon and the Islanders after the Dale Hunter cheap shot. His favorite Ranger of all time is Mike Richter.
