Slats Coins Phrase to Describe Hundreds of Pro Athletes

Already reeling from the way New York Islanders center Mike Comrie is infringing on his “hockey player that you haven’t heard of dates dubiously talented hottie” turf, New York Rangers super-pest Sean Avery now has to endure being dissed by his own GM.

As the Post‘s Larry Brooks reports, Glen Sather described the winger as “a reasonably effective player as well as a detriment to the team.”

Maybe the “team” Sather meant was the L.A. Kings. The Blueshirts were 17-6-6 after acqiring Avery, who is asking for $2.6 million to the Rangers’ $1.3.

Because this is an NHL salary arbitration item, I’m obligated to conclude it by mentioning Tommy Salo.

    I’m a huge Kings fan, and I actually really liked Avery while he was with the team, but I certainly wasn’t heartbroken over losing him. The guy is basically a dick. Not just on the ice, but I’ve never seen or heard him be particularly personable or funny in interviews. He’s just seems to have the personality of an asshole. It wouldn’t surprise me if he’s the type of guy who provides a short term spark and long term friction.

    At this point, I’d rather have M-A Cliche.
