Both guys had their gloves off fellas, Smid was sleeping. Smid got what he deserved, another case of someone having to fight for making a clean hit. The same crap happened to Sarich last night, gets attacked for a clean hip check. I hate Avery as well, but good for him for dropping a piece of crap that was trying to be a hero. Last I heard, Fraser can take care of himself. And Smid can fight as well fellas, we all saw him tune in Iginla last year and he has fared well in a couple others as well.

tko win avery

Posted by wannago_letsgo on November 15, 2010 at 12:28 AM

Avery wins, Smid had his head up his rear end. After the fact though man that was a pretty cool Donnybrook.

Posted by jaybird6401 on November 14, 2010 at 08:14 PM

how can anyone give a win to a cheap a$$ sucker punch, its scum like avery that will keep hockey out of the main stream spot light. I hope someone breaks his face. The ranger organization as well as fans should be embarrassed!

Posted by b.t.wilson on November 14, 2010 at 09:42 PM

smid shouldn't have even bothered in the first place, BUT i can't with a clear conscience give avery a win for a suckerpunch. smid clearly wasn't expecting a scrap at that point, avery showed no signs he was going to go and then jumps him. he should have given smid a couple second to actually square off, instead of being a dickhead. i hope he is suspended for a loooong while, he has no respect. ** some people's capacity for foolishness astounds me. smid challenges avery to a fight, and avery wants nothing to do with it (or so say the oilers, and with avery's track record, i'll go with them), so what then? what is the time frame for this "be ready to fight if you make a challenge?" you guys defending avery are talking about? i suppose smid should be ready to fight until he is back on the bus? does avery just have an open invitation to clock smid anytime he feels like it after the initial challenge? what about this so-called unwritten code? if someone doesn't want to fight you when you ask for it, thats it, its over, you shouldn't have to be perpetually ready to go until you are back in street clothes. **

Posted by Borisso on November 14, 2010 at 06:36 PM

The Rangers are such of bunch of F***ing brainless bullies now... I used to be such a fan of that team a while back... now with avery, boogart and the rest of the retard-connection over there... its not even enjoyable hockey anymore... thank GOD there is frolov/gaborik to keep the level of hockey to a minimum level... On the fight: as usual Avery is a totaly Pussy... waits for the other guy to look away before throwing the gloves and going for the sucker punch... woopteedoo

Posted by NewYorker328 on November 23, 2010 at 02:00 AM

Cheap sucker punch avery for sure, then again this seems to be the only way he can win any fight...someone needs to give him a taste of his own medicine he SUCKS!!!

Posted by tleahey on February 20, 2011 at 10:26 PM

unbelievable...Avery deserves to have his ass handed to him for a complete cheap shot. too bad these teams won't see each other for awhile. michelletti the color announcer for the Rangers didn't appreciate the sucker punch my Avery either. Gutless. I will not give Avery a win for the Pearl Harbor attack.

Posted by RRSM53 on November 15, 2010 at 10:43 AM

was not a fight was crap just like Avery is. I have a big issue with fights all the time after clean hits, maybe hockey should become tag hockey and maybe change the game to table hockey. Bottom line, Avery is worthless, shame on Smid for turning his back on him never trust a snake it will bite you. Someone is going to clean Avery's clock real good some day for sure.

Posted by athlete9393 on November 15, 2010 at 11:10 PM

Avery is a fucking pussy, he doesn't even give the guy a chance. I can't wait until the Rangers play the Bruins and either Chara, Lucic, Thornton, or McQuaid beat the shit out of him. I know Lucic kicked his ass when he was with the Stars and I think Thornton kicked his ass a couple of times too. Can't wait, can't wait.

Posted by LUCICOWNS29 on November 15, 2010 at 04:25 PM

sedinfan is an assclown first off both players gloves were not off second off avery walked away then throws his gloves off quick and throws a one shot he is a bitch enough said he wont fight anyone with any skill because the last time he got slapped by mark stuart for a clean hit so i dont wanna hear it AVERY is a PUNK and nevermind the fact he called theo peckham a dumb N***ER so hell get what he deserves im not worried about it

Posted by yngblonde1 on November 15, 2010 at 09:27 AM

Avery is a worthless piece of SH*T..Sucker punches a guy then throws punches as he is on his back on the ice. I can't wait till that little sawed off creep tries to fight like a real man and gets beaten to death. What a cheap shot punk. Then again the Rangers have Prust (Goon) and Boogard (bigfoot shaved) on their team as well as Avery (sucker punch kid). They will fade as usual by years end. The fight can't be scored a win for a sucker punch....

Posted by scubachris13 on November 23, 2010 at 07:40 AM

It was a clean hit and Smid shouldn't have challenged Avery to a fight but who knows what the lead up to that was. If he wanted to fight him it doesn't hurt to put it out there, Avery turns him down and that's it. Then Avery waits until Smid is looking away and blindsides him after previously turning him down? That is bush league and another example of Avery just being a general goon who doesn't care about the rules, written or unwritten.

Posted by ftd on November 15, 2010 at 11:38 AM

Typical Avery punk action. Gets zero respect for good reason.

Posted by hockey450 on November 14, 2010 at 11:52 PM

Avery had a clean hit.... I was fine with the hit, but telling a guy your not going to fight him and then waiting until he skates off to blind side him... I am not going to give him a win for that.. draw.. pretty sad that this was bench clearing.. you win some times you lose sometimes. get over it

Posted by Spazemunky on November 15, 2010 at 09:42 PM

Avery is a disgrace to the sport. if i was on his team i would have a serious problem with him. i have no problem stickin up for a teammate and scrapping. but how many times does he make his teammates fight over his bullsh*t antics.

Posted by FlyersFan6 on November 15, 2010 at 01:37 PM

Another example of Avery being the wuss that he is. Won't fight someone who knows how to fight, blind sides someone who can't fight. There is simply one word to describe Sean Avery, coward. Can't play hockey, useless to any team unless someone wants him to agitate the game. A disgrace to the great game of Ice Hockey. Smid, keep your gloves on next time, then Avery will get the suspension he deserves.

Posted by Veleno45 on November 14, 2010 at 08:11 PM

Avery is such a piece of poo. Calling this a draw due to circumstances.

Avery is a cheap shot crack head!! Should draw suspension....what a jerk1

Posted by blueman42 on November 15, 2010 at 08:52 PM

no they both didnt have there gloves off. smid was leaving when avery decided he wanted to throw a punch. he obviously declined the initial challenge because he knew hed get beat up then took the little girls way out. avery is the biggest puss ive ever seen. then ran to the locker room when things went down. hes an idiot

Posted by swordhand on November 18, 2010 at 10:45 AM

everyone should realize that avery NEVER squares off. i know i've done it in a bar before. damn right, i'll take a swing if i see the guy's eyes looking elsewhere when a fight is about to break out. he knows there is a strong possibility of a fight and it's avery for pete's sake, the dirtiest guy in the league by a longshot. poor decision on smid's part for not handling a waste of skin more efficiently, he probably would have won if he just kept his eyes on him

Posted by thatsweak99 on December 03, 2010 at 04:32 PM

Very dirty. Sean is going to get his one day and I can't wait. Not a single soul will feel for the guy. Keep your head sean. I hear a train coming.

Posted by HerbRaglan on November 14, 2010 at 11:11 PM

No doubt it was a pussy move from Avery. This makes the case for players to simply clock him without warning, which is fine with me.

Posted by riffraff on November 15, 2010 at 02:06 AM

it must suck to have Avery on your team. Slats shitting on a once legit franchise

Posted by scorp1on on November 15, 2010 at 07:20 AM

One can only assume that Avery declined and then reneged. Typical. The action of course is that Avery won... but was it a fight?

Posted by erickson420 on November 15, 2010 at 04:05 PM

Cheap shot by Avery. if he was going to fight drop the gloves when first challenged. Hope someone knocks Avery out.

Posted by smwarpig63 on November 14, 2010 at 07:22 PM

It is with pain and guilt that I have to vote for that little fucking pussy sean avery. as is typical for that bitch, he waited till smid looked away and jumped him. FUCK SEAN AVERY. As a flyers fan, if they ever aquire him, I will simply refuse to watch any game that he is active. justinL611: I am curious what you say about Carcillo's fight/suckerpunch on bradley last year Staceyb: The problem is that avery is a pussy and would have refused a fight with peckham, just like he will only fight hartnell on the flyers. he did fight carcillo last year but only as retribution for carcillos great and awesome beat down of gaborik.

Posted by staceyb on November 14, 2010 at 07:46 PM

Sneaky Sean wins with the sucker punch attack on Bruiser Smid. Too bad a proven fighter like Peckham couldn't get to Avery first.

Posted by no123one on November 23, 2010 at 05:45 PM

TKO, win Avery.

Posted by rocky 1 on November 14, 2010 at 05:54 PM

Cheap shot Avery says he doesn,t want to fight then cold calks Smid when he,s not ready.Very dirty Avery and i hope you like your suspension coming from the league.Oh and Avery Smid can Fight and next game he will expose you for the pussy you are!

Posted by leeban on November 14, 2010 at 05:20 PM

Avery tags Smid and Smid hits the ice. You can say Avery jumped him but honestly if you want to come over to Avery after a clean hit and talk $hit .. then get ready to fight.

Posted by Caps44 on November 14, 2010 at 09:57 PM

Avery sucker punches Smid, after apparently denying him a battle. Agree with Wilson: what si a proper time to wait? Avery is just his usual self. Now, will NHL give Avery some time to reflect, given that he has a record?

Posted by 5fourfighten on November 16, 2010 at 12:09 PM

Once again Avery is protected by the Linesmen & Referees while escorted safely to the locker room while his team mates clean up his scraps. Is Avery so insecure that he has to resort to these tactics with a Euro-Non-Fighter? Or is he just deranged?

Posted by slenster on December 02, 2010 at 11:36 PM

Quick attack by Avery KO's Smid.

Posted by unique2001 on November 15, 2010 at 06:43 PM

Nice Sucker Punch, he'll get his someday soon.

Posted by Aldous on November 15, 2010 at 09:30 AM

This is typical Avery, but this is mostly what he's paid to do; piss people off. You gotta hand it to him that he'll scrap, he just seems to always do it in a sneaky manner. The bout goes to Avery only because Smid wasn't paying enough attention for be prepared when the punches started flying.

Posted by swb103 on November 14, 2010 at 07:04 PM

Smid dropped his gloves and got KO'd, simple and plain. He should've squared up and guarded his grill, instead he got served. If this wasn't Avery delivering the blow, nobody would be up in arms. Not to mention the initial hit on Fraser was hard but clean.

Posted by ToughKnock on February 16, 2011 at 12:33 AM

lol avery cheap shotted him but avery fights dirty so you should turn your back to him

Posted by shearer2 on November 15, 2010 at 02:45 PM

Anyone but Avery there wouldn't be an issue. Smid wanted a fight and got drilled straight in the face, that couldn't have happened if he had turned away. For all you Avery haters - tough shit.

Posted by Ripper20 on November 17, 2010 at 12:47 AM

Avery is such a punk-ass bitch. He starts with a nice hit, and Smid never should have confronted him. But Avery is such a puss, he waits until Smid is looking up ice then assaults him, getting that first sucker punch to land right on the chin...down goes Smid. Then wussy boy throws a couple more when they are down on the ice. I do however, like the old school multiple fights at once.

Posted by digitalroc on November 15, 2010 at 11:03 PM

Crap fight overall, one sucker punch that landed glass jaw Smid on his butt. Good to see the Oilers lose the game too.

Posted by Guilty Dog on November 15, 2010 at 10:14 PM

You can say all you want about a suckerpunch...but Smid clearly asked him to go...Avery looked around to check out his surroundings...see if the puck was still in the defensive zone..Avery dropped his cloves and charged......

Posted by IrishJimbo on November 15, 2010 at 10:52 AM

I think the media is over-reacting here. Yes, it's questionable what Avery did and is outside of the "code" but Smid clearly knows who it is and should have been ready. If you are going to stand up for a team-mate after what you perceive was a questionable hit (which it wasn't) then get the gloves off and engage immediately. Stick tapping doesn't apply in this scenario....take the instigator and make your point. I didn't see a "jump from behind" Not defending Avery by any means....but you have to know your enemy. The clip below was much worse BTW and if Smid wasn't ready then he only has himself to blame.

Posted by dansal55 on November 15, 2010 at 05:53 PM

Lots of levels here: First off, I getting sick of fights coming off really clean hits. Since when is a good, clean, hard body check something to drop gloves over. With some of the cheap shots out there, a guy should get a pat on the back for a solid check. Even if it is Avery... Which takes us to the next level: Guys, remember these are the Rangers home announcers telling you that Avery turned Smid down on the fight just to get the jump on him. And the Rangers always have top level, relatively unbiased announcing (Can you imagine Jack Edwards on this one? Puke fest), thank God. Judging by the reaction of the Oilers bench that is exactly what happened. That is just typical punk Avery stuff. Just need him to get the onions to go with a real big time fighter to watch get what he deserves. It's a shame too, because if he left the cheap baby stuff at home, he could bring some good play to the table. But he can't, and never will.

Posted by tattooedkingpin on November 15, 2010 at 09:45 AM

Avery gets the W but it wasnt very respectable.

Posted by EastKing on November 15, 2010 at 01:33 PM

Wow, now I know why many people don't like Avery.

Posted by JustinL611 on November 14, 2010 at 04:38 PM

One punch KO for Avery on Smid. Avery with the clean hit on Fraser, which Smid takes exception to. After initally wanting to drop the gloves Smid looks as if he skates away but then Avery isn't letting him go without a souvenir. This is when all hell breaks loose, suspensions are forthcoming. EDIT: It is a KO because SMID dropped his gloves and was also going to punch Avery but couldn't connect quick enough. Smid knew what he was getting into and he got dropped. End of story.

Posted by R-Money on November 17, 2010 at 06:21 PM

I don't see how this is even a debate. Avery came in with the hard, legal hit and Smid didn't like it, so he challenged Avery. Basically, Smid barks at Avery for a few seconds to get him to throw as Avery stares off toward the play ignoring him and glancing back occasionally. Finally, Smid swipes at Avery's stick to get his attention. Avery looks at him and looks away again. Smid assumes that Avery won't fight and begins to turn away and all of a sudden Avery throws his gloves and swings. Smid's gloves were barely off when he was being punched. It was a classic sucker punch and it's exactly what Avery's known for. I hope someone caves that guys face in pretty soon.

Posted by lovejoy on November 15, 2010 at 02:20 AM

Avery won, no doubt. But hard to say what happened there. Avery looked like he didn't accept the challenge maybe he said something of this kind to Smid. With his reputation what else man can expect?

Posted by ghjkfdhgfd on November 14, 2010 at 05:59 PM

KO win avs

Posted by msaw1125 on November 14, 2010 at 09:42 PM

Funny how last year when the Rangers got their ass' kicked with guys like Carcillo taking liberties on their star players nobody said a thing. Now they beef up in the offseason and back each other up, and all of a sudden they are bullies? That kid Smid challenged Avery, Avery didn't want to fight and Smid probably kept lipping off enough where Avery let him have it. There is an old saying, "be careful what you wish for, you just might get it", and Smid sure did!

Posted by cigaros on November 19, 2010 at 08:17 PM

don't step up if you don't wan to fight, smid.

Posted by kronvallizer78 on November 14, 2010 at 04:33 PM

Crap bout Smid was pummeled by Avery on one punch. If you challenge the guy be ready for it Smid.

Posted by filthynumber1 on November 15, 2010 at 12:53 AM

ok i will give avery the win altho i dont like it. my only advice to smid when fighting a puke like avery is dont give him a chance to square off. look what happens when u do. just start chucking em (against avery). everyone will love u for it.

Posted by rmartini27 on November 21, 2010 at 07:30 PM

somebody should have told smid to watch out for the right. if your going to fight a snake like avery you have to be ready for crap like that..... KO AVERY

Posted by lb1631 on November 16, 2010 at 10:32 AM

I am not a big Avery fun but if your going to challenge a guy to a fight you have to be ready to fight. Smid shouldn't have went over like a tough guy and asked for a fight. Avery threw a great hit and why after a good hit does every player in the league think they have to stick up for the guy that was crushed is obsurd. Watch the stick swing by Smid why aren't all the jackasses whining about that. F... Smid for being a douche and not being ready. He drops his gloves and gets caught. Watch the video Smid skates across the ice he should have been ready.

Posted by bradass81 on November 15, 2010 at 03:45 PM

Posted by BEUK23 on November 14, 2010 at 09:36 PM

He was ready and saying "let's go" ,nothing oilers should be upset about

Posted by guas99 on November 15, 2010 at 11:56 AM

Smid got whooped. Dont challenge a guy with a visor on. There are no rules to fighting when you are challenged after a clean check on a fourth line player. If Avery would have dropped his gloves right away would Smid have gotten an extra 2 minutes, hell no. Learn how to fight visor tough guy, what a joke. Why do you oilers have 8 guys on the ice when the rangers only have 4? No unwritten rules about that? The oilers were embarassed on the scoreboard and in all the fights. Probably the worst team in the NHL

I really dont see what the commentator is talking about, that so wasnt a cheap shot! They were talking about fighting Avery looked the other way then looked back at Smid who was still looking at him, then dropped his gloves. Dont challenge someone to a fight then turn away from the guy haha Smid is an idiot and got dropped simple as that. Its only cuz its Avery who did it that its called a "sucker punch". Good punch by Avery

Posted by Truk on November 14, 2010 at 10:26 PM

hmm, you guys crying about avery are funny.. the worst part about this was another guy wearing a visor starting a fight. if you challenge somebody and your wearing a visor you should get thrown out of the game.. was avery's hit clean or dirty? who challenged who? was smid's glove's off before he got punched? win avery. if you start a fight, don't be surprised if you get punched in the face..

Posted by HMai802915 on February 28, 2013 at 06:37 PM

Smid comes to Avery after a clean hit and got his ass handed to him. Avery never skated away and if you look at it, SMid backed off but got his gloves off!!!! AVERY WITH THE WIN!!!

Posted by Blake_C on October 21, 2011 at 11:39 AM

Although Avery did come at him pretty quickly and surprised him with the "sucker punch", rewatch the video and you'll see that Smid and Avery look each other right in the eyes and drop the gloves at the exact same time. You can't blame Avery for winning a fight just because the other guy was off balance. I think people are complaining because they just don't like Avery. Also, I can't feel bad for a guy who challenges another player to a fight while he's wearing a visor. It's common hockey fighting code to take the visor off if you want to go. Avery with the W

what a joke.....Smid challenges him, drops his gloves well before he gets hit and some morons on here are calling Avery's punch a "sucker punch." What a joke!! You challenge some, drop your gloves and still get tagged because you can't back peddle fast enough. Clean fight by Avery!! From the very second you finish your words when challenging someone to a fight, you had better be ready, period!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Posted by billy jack on November 14, 2010 at 04:38 PM

Posted by billyraz on November 15, 2010 at 10:33 AM

i keep telling myself that i'm missing something. everyone keeps saying it was a cheap shot. i play it over and over and not once did i see smid take his eyes off of avery. i guess it's just the hatred of avery that makes people see what they want to see. as far as calling avery classless and then making a comment about his mother....? please don't have kids.

Posted by nyrhky21 on November 14, 2010 at 06:10 PM

KO for avery..was Smid expecting anything different from Avery? Everybody complains about avery saying he pulls his antics, but when he fights and gets in a solid quick punch against a willing combatant (Yes Smid was a willing combatant) , everybody still complains..if for example Iginla got in a quick punch everybody would praise him..KO Avery sorry Smid

Posted by Hoofharted on November 14, 2010 at 10:44 PM

Avery's first right was the end of this fight!

Posted by ThogSmash on November 15, 2010 at 04:27 PM

You guy are haters. Smid clearly provoked the fight and then wasn't quick enough to throw the first punch. We see this countless times in hockey, 2 people drop the gloves but 1 is quicker to throw the first punch. Avery hits him square on the jaw with a great punch btw and because it's Avery it's a sucker punch. Think what you want, sucker punch or not Smid got knocked the fugg out!

Posted by levitynyc on November 14, 2010 at 10:28 PM

Real tough to challenge someone when you have a visor on. He never took his eyes off of Avery and he dropped his gloved. KO Victory for Avery.

Posted by woodape on November 16, 2010 at 01:58 AM

Normally I wouldn't support Avery - I hate him like everyone else. However...clean hit...Smid challenged him for making the clean hit (dumb)...and then Smid figured Avery (who gets offers to fight about every minute) would decline and starts to try to play hockey and then Avery decides to accept challenge once he realizes Smid is no longer paying attention. Avery lands one hard accurate strike to the jaw. Actally, yeah, Avery is a SOB.

Posted by Ranger26 on November 14, 2010 at 10:04 PM

You make your bed, you lie in it. Avery is a proven fighter, this clown tried sticking up for his teammate and got knocked out.

Posted by septemous on November 15, 2010 at 12:18 AM

Smid dropped the gloves and saw what was coming. That by definition is no sucker punch. Avery was quick, sly and punched a sucker in the kisser! LOL! Hey guys - don't give me any code bs - it's fighting. You fight to win.

Was a fair fight. Both skaters tossed the glove and made a couple strides. Smid just looked away for some strange reason and Avery did what you do in a fight...punched the other guy in the face. Good show. Great job by Avery.

I hate Sean Avery. But I have NO PROBLEM with this at all. 1) Fighting after a clean hit is dumb 2) If you challenge a guy to a fight be prepared for the consequences Avery was watching the play and not sure if he felt like fighting. Obviously he did and kicked Smid's sorry European ass. So effing what.

Posted by Heyzeus on Nov 14, 2010 at 5:05 PM POW RIGHT IN THE KISSER I suddenly have the urge to strangle a fat man........ Line brawl!!! Good 'ol hockey game!! How do I vote Win for Peckham is definately gonna get a suspension for starting this....who was that on the Rangers bench throwing from the bench? Ring ring...hello, Colin Campbell?

Posted by Willy WILL on November 15, 2010 at 04:31 PM

Smid was to slow to react. What Avery did was ok. I don't really like him but I have no problem with what he did here!

Posted by True Blue on November 14, 2010 at 05:08 PM

Don't bother with that shit about Smid not being ready, he asked for the fight, he was facing Avery and had time to drop his gloves before Avery dropped him like a sack of doorknobs. Don't ask for it if you're not ready for it. Win to Avery.

haha woww

Posted by ithinkfit914 on November 14, 2010 at 06:24 PM

all you guys that keep saying sucker the video again. Smid is looking at avery the whole time and actually drops his gloves. Pretty sure a sucker punch is when you aren't paying attention. Smid is just slow. Get over it

Posted by EDDUBBS on November 15, 2010 at 08:13 AM

AVERY is classless and so id the pig that bore him. He is despised by the players and fans in the NHL and is a classless, no talent fagot that sleeps with his mother...capice?

Posted by MeLikeSemenko on November 15, 2010 at 11:22 AM

typical avery....this guy is a complete joke

Posted by Leafs2006 on November 14, 2010 at 06:19 PM

Avery = The biggest POS in the league, tied with Christine not giving Avery a win for a sucker punch

Posted by QUIGGS22 on November 15, 2010 at 11:03 AM

What Im reading is that Smid challenged Avery,,Avery said no,,then Avery decided to drop the gloves and nail Smid. Big time cheap all around by Avery . Win by dq for Smid !

Posted by bradwilliams on November 15, 2010 at 12:06 AM

Coward!!But makes the paycheque....

Posted by Sukoshi84 on November 14, 2010 at 04:20 PM

Avery with his usual pusssy ass punk moves.... ANd if you think that's a KO you really are a fuking retard!!

Posted by 24kokanee on November 14, 2010 at 09:58 PM

Avery is a whimp, look at the chicken run when anyone who knows how to fight calls on him and to top that all off he suckers a Euro player who offers to go. Be a man or put your cage back on and go back to minor hockey. Zero respect and everyone knows he is a joke, Smid the win for the offer to the biggest joke in hockey.

Posted by btmeyer on November 14, 2010 at 08:37 PM

Avery is a chicken shit

Posted by upyours on November 14, 2010 at 08:04 PM

Typical Avery. Drop his gloves and sucker a non fighter. He would never face anybody straight up that could actually throw a punch. He has to be the bigest ball-less POS wearing a jersey. An even bigger joke are the mindless buffoons that defend him.

Posted by flyerguy on November 15, 2010 at 08:51 AM

As usual the COWARD Avery is at it again. I can't give a victory to a worthless coward.

Posted by GSP09 on November 14, 2010 at 10:11 PM

How can anybody give the win to Avery after this sneaky blow to Smid's face . What a joke.

Posted by usedtolikefla on November 15, 2010 at 01:56 AM

You guys are complete idiots if u have no problem with this. It was probably the biggest cheap shot I've seen since Barnaby went after that goalie. It obviously broke some sort of code if it caused an all out line brawl. I'd even argue that the hit was a bit of a blind side. I'm not pissed about the hit tho.. but he should square off and challenge him like a man. Then he leaves all his teammates to fight his battle. Coward. Avery's a loser.. but I do like to watch him.

Posted by MikeVee on November 15, 2010 at 10:51 AM

Avery clearly flung his gloves off to get the 1st punch off. Full out wussy move....Avery's own team said it was a cheap shot (Christensen). Avery=Tool

Posted by j sto on November 26, 2010 at 07:13 PM

Avery....what a coward! Waits till a guy turns his head then jumps him.He wont fight Smid like a man...ooops i forgot Avery isnt a man. Go back to making purses you freak!

Posted by Xuthl on November 14, 2010 at 09:27 PM

I CANNOT give Avery the decision for sucker punching Smid. It is just about time for Avery to grow a pair.

Posted by LAQuick32 on November 15, 2010 at 09:43 AM

Avery = Whore... I hope one day that little bitch who is Avery, will fight for real a real fighter and do not his little sissy as usually...

Posted by johnnyrock555 on February 05, 2011 at 05:38 PM

Another cowardly act by Avery, P _ _ _ Y.

Posted by Cricks_21 on November 15, 2010 at 06:30 PM

That gutless maggot Avery, I don't care what anyone says that was vintage rat sh*t. My female bulldog Ruby has more balls than that puke. I don't wish harm on anybody but if someone 'Bertuzzi's' Sean Avery and dummies his career, I'm going to a bar and drinks are on me. Mark my words, someone's going to do to him what McSorley did to Brashear if not worse. It's a joke, you pull that a few years back and you'd be lucky to leave the ice alive.

Posted by GoliathBnr on November 17, 2010 at 12:22 PM

Smid was ready, he asked for it

Posted by Andyman on November 16, 2010 at 01:54 PM

Avery with a cheap shot and then his teammates have to clean up after his sloppy seconds

Posted by gmr133 on November 15, 2010 at 01:01 PM

Years ago, the Kings are playing the Flames and during pre-game warmups, Theo Fleury skates by Gretzky and says "How does it feel to be the most hated guy in the league?" The next pass Gretzky replies to Fleury "How does it feel to be the most hated guy on your own team?" With the Rangers going to Pitt tonight, do Crosby and Avery have that same exchange? Or maybe Avery is just the answer to both those questions. Clean hit. Avery was right to refuse the initial invite to fight--no point after a clean hit and your team up 5-2. Then he's idiot-avery and jumps the guy anyway. Smid should've just tossed the bucket and gone after him.

Posted by Wings_19 on November 14, 2010 at 04:39 PM

This was not a fight. Smid challenged Avery, who refused to act until Smid wasn't paying attention and then Avery suckered him. What a class act that guy is hey?

Posted by B.C. two-hander on November 15, 2010 at 02:06 AM

Watch from the 3:40 mark and tell me Avery wasn't up to his typical B.S. Hope he sits for awhile.

Posted by Boogeyman2383 on November 15, 2010 at 05:09 PM

Avery wins this one, technically they both had their gloves off, but avery threw a quick one before smid was ready.

Posted by xXRangers16Xx on January 20, 2011 at 06:16 AM

Ok look. Heres the problem with people calling this a "suckerpunch" Smid looked at the bench. then put his eyes back on avery. From that point avery threw his gloves and went after him. Smids eyes were on avery the entire time. In my opinion, if you are going to provoke a fight, or talk shit, ESPECIALLY to Sean Avery. . . you better have a veryyy loose grip on your gloves and be ready. Smid wanted it, and wether or not he reacted fast enough is his own problem. Both guys dropped gloves. Clean shot, KO. Avery victor.

Posted by coroner78 on November 14, 2010 at 10:57 PM

Hail Avery!!! Peckham is a nobody,what the hell is he doing in the NHL.!??!Stortini is the biggest punching bag in the NHL, he should give up fighting. Screw all you bastard talking crap about Avery!

Posted by trueblue3044 on November 14, 2010 at 09:50 PM

How can any of you f-ing retards say that was a sucker punch? Smid came over to Avery and challenged him. There was hesitation from both sides before Avery accepted the challenge. Both of them got their gloves off albeit Smid after Avery. But who cares? A sucker punch is hitting someone whos not looking or not ready. Smid challenged Avery and then Avery gave him a right to the jaw while Smid was staring right at him ready to drop the gloves. Avery doesnt have a great track record but all of you people calling this a sucker punch man up like some others who commented and deal with the fact that this was clean.

Posted by Redzilla on November 14, 2010 at 06:00 PM

Nice nit, but what a surprise.....Avery is the root cause and root of all evil.

Posted by chad420 on November 14, 2010 at 06:54 PM

win Dickfour

Posted by rdemps01 on November 14, 2010 at 11:35 PM

I really don't know what the fuss is about. Avery hits Fisher clean and hard... Then gets challenged to fight. Why.. Good hit, clean hit.. Then Avery says wait wait.. Smid then backs toward center ice.. Looks away briefly, then is looking at Avery as Avery starts at him.. Oilers players are saying Smid turned his back.. not so.. Smid saw Seans right fist the whole time, and it connected and dropped him. People love to hate Sean, but the reason they do, is they are just not as good as him.

Posted by thebigbea55 on November 14, 2010 at 06:35 PM

gonna be some big suspensions for the oilers.. players jumping off the bench to fight, then start fights with players on the bench.. typical oilers, losing badly and goon it up..

Posted by bigd071 on November 15, 2010 at 01:55 PM

Avery with the win. If you are going to challenge someone you better be ready to go for the rest of your shift. Just sayin...

Posted by Clowes ABeast29 on November 14, 2010 at 07:14 PM

Well NEVER get in someones face and NOT be ready. Especially with a known cheap-shot-artist...

Posted by Orrsrighthand on November 14, 2010 at 07:06 PM

one punch KO for Avery. Smid got his gloves off, just didnt get his hands up to protect himself quick enough. Not a sucker punch at all. he actually has a hold of Avery's jersey with his right and his left was down and got clocked...

Posted by kari takko on November 15, 2010 at 04:38 PM

one punch win.

Posted by Rags4Life on November 14, 2010 at 09:05 PM

If your gonna go after someone, be ready to take a punch. Smid didn't get the memo.

Posted by Sather-Satan on November 15, 2010 at 10:01 AM

1) Clean hit on Fraser by Avery. 2) Smid pointlessly challenges Avery, who wears a bullseye on his sweater and takes far more cheap shots than he gives out. 3) Smid, wearing a visor, does not remove it. 4) Avery, knowing its already a blowout, doens't bit. 5) Smid, still wearing the visor, keeps talking, maintains eye contact. 6) Avery, watching Smid still eyeing him, obliges. 7) Smid gets one hand up in Avery's face, sheds his other glove. 8) Avery, much faster, has gloves off and rocks Smid with a right to the jaw. 9) Smid goes down. 10) Avery somehow gets an extra 2 minutes for "roughing". 11) The internet declares it a sucker punch. Despite all the vids and pics that show Smid was ready and willing. 12) Smid spends time practicing getting his gloves off after challenging someone to a fight.

Posted by jcstokes on November 20, 2010 at 10:30 AM

Look, you drop them, you gotta be prepared. Avery did what he had to do and Smid didn't. Thats why he got KO'd.

Posted by DocGomer on November 14, 2010 at 07:47 PM

That is why you dont try to fight someone after a clean hit on the boards. He was gliding on his skates and Avery dropped him, they both had their gloves off and Averys sweater was grabbed. Sorry he didnt want to get his [email protected]@whooped by the bigger guy so he was quicker. No such thing as a clean fight! @MikeV "Avery clearly flung his gloves off to get the 1st punch off. Full out wussy move." What, as opposed to taking them off and placing them nicely on the ice and getting hit first???? yeah.

memo to smid: put your hands up after you throw your gloves aves with a clean knockout but as usual gets the bum wrap

Posted by Zodijackyl on November 15, 2010 at 12:06 PM

Sean Avery appears to be the only player in the NHL who is willing to fight without risking a delay of game penalty for shadow boxing. Decisive win to Avery for not wasting time once the gloves were off.

Posted by tim daddy on November 15, 2010 at 11:01 AM

i'm not usually on the avery sucks bandwagon , but sucker punching a euro? come on the game was over anyway, so why even bother?

Posted by Dr. Goonery on November 14, 2010 at 09:14 PM

Typical Avery, can't wait for the day someone gets him back.

Posted by bruiseyoureye on November 15, 2010 at 03:28 PM

smid dropped his gloves first...then avery clocked avery.

Posted by big_georges_27 on November 14, 2010 at 10:13 PM

Clear and utterly disgraceful CHEAPSHOT from Avery. Smid asks him to go, Avery says "next shift", Smid lets down his guard and then Avery decides to sucker Smid when he's not expecting it. Cheap, gutless, and disgraceful on the part of Avery. What else would you expect? Based on that, no way will I give Avery the win. I'll mark it down for Smid since he's at least a stand-up guy, not a gutless punk like Avery!

Posted by bruin1160 on November 15, 2010 at 02:47 PM

Typical Avery...even has to be a sucker punching bitch against a nobody like Smid. One day someone just needs to bury this little shit.

Posted by mario66cz on November 14, 2010 at 06:15 PM

Fuck bulshit Avery :-P
