The morons at the NHL defend Elisha Cuthbert's honor by suspending former boyfriend Sean Avery for implying that Cuthbert is a NHL whore.

Just because Elisha has dated some NHL players, does not make her a puck slut. I'm sure that Elisha is as pure as an angel. Who's to say that she has not lost her virginity? She is obviously a wonderful woman who has very high morals and standards. She has style, class & innocence.................. But... suspending a player for ex-girlfriend comments? That's just plain stupid..........

Apparently, Sean Avery finally ran out of ways to cross the line.
So he invented a new one.
And in one stunningly inappropriate sentence yesterday a career built on indiscretion may finally face the sort of justice he has eluded for so long.
By now you've heard or seen the clip in which the Dallas Stars wart announces to a wall of reporters he wants to make a statement, waits for cameras and tape recorders to start rolling and then unloads this jaw-dropper:
"I'm really happy to be back in Calgary, I love Canada," a smirking Avery said after yesterday's morning skate.
"I just wanted to comment on how it has become like a common thing in the NHL for guys to fall in love with my sloppy seconds. I don't know what that's about. But, enjoy the game tonight."
The NHL stepped in to suspend Avery indefinitely for "inappropriate comments not pertaining to the game," pending a hearing with commissioner Gary Bettman.
For those who haven't been following, Avery's calculated attack was a dig at Calgary Flames defenceman Dion Phaneuf and his girlfriend, actress Elisha Cuthbert (inset left). Her crime, apparently, was once dating Avery.
Cuthbert also has reportedly dated Montreal's Mike Komisarek while Avery previously dated actress Rachel Hunter, who currently dates Los Angeles Kings forward Jarrett Stoll.
Stars owner Thomas Hicks backed the suspension.
"This organization will not tolerate such behaviour. We hold our team to a higher standard," he said.
