As a player: Can't stand him.

As a person: Probably couldn't stand him. Seems like one of those hipster douchebags with a holier-than-though attitude.

...Probably some carry-over hatred from the player side...oh well

I absolutely can't stand Avery but I will give him credit for standing up for marriage equality. Nice gesture on his part.

Agreed. Nice to see hockey taking the lead in gay rights with this, the Burkes and even Sopel taking the cup on the Chicago gay pride parade.

Damnit, I'd like to hate him in peace, and now he does something cool.

big deal...an unmarried bachelor who has no respect for other people's partners(ask Brodeur/Giannone) coming out in support of an institution he's not even a part of. Hardly the boldest move in the world...especially when you're already among the most hated players in the league and you play in a liberal city. I think it would serve the cause better if it was someone like Shanahan who is more universally respected and isn't so transparently trying to personally brand himself for his life beyond hockey... a life he'll need to think about more and more if Avery has a couple more seasons like he had this year.
