Like you guys have said Avery shouldn't be on that list. Avery may be hated by his peers, but itâ€™s for his trash talking not for his dirty play. They list the Smid incident and that immediately sky rockets him to #2 on the list? I agree that was a cheap shot, but there are still many that didnâ€™t even think that play was cheap. He certainly has a reputation for being disliked, but Iâ€™ve never heard players say that Avery intentionally tried to injure them.
Burrows speared Staal in the nuts 3 weeks ago, does that automatically mean heâ€™s a dirty player? I donâ€™t think so. One play doesnâ€™t make someone a dirty player. I don't know enough about Burrows to say he's not dirty, just saying based on that one incident I won't say he is
I think Kaleta should be A LOT higher. Iâ€™d say that if Cooke is #1A then Kaleta is #1B
Thereâ€™s a huge difference between trash talking and trying to injure someone. Sticks & stones may break your bones but names will never hurt you
