To say Sean Avery and Martin Brodeur have never been the best of friends would be a pretty big understatement.
The two have a long history of irritation which seemed to hits its apex after Avery’s ‘screen’ during the 2008 playoffs which eventually lead to a rule change.
Needless to say, when Brodeur was asked about Avery’s appearance on ABC’s Dancing With the Stars, he was less then enthused and took a shot at the former New York Rangers talent:
“I didn’t watch — I don’t watch those shows — but I was watching NHL Network and they mentioned it,” Brodeur told NJ.com.
And his thoughts?
“What more could he do to embarrass himself?” Brodeur said with a chuckle. “There it is!”
Avery of course didn’t enjoy being called an embarrassment, so he blasted Brodeur on social media, calling him fatso (now deleted) and hinting he shouldn’t cheat on his wife with the nanny.
Ah yes – the old ‘I’m porking a supermodel while you’re stuck with the nanny’ line. If I had a nickel for every time I’ve had to use that.
