Cuthbert's Ex Suspended Over "Sloppy Seconds"

12/3/2008 11:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Hockey Fun Fact: You can punch the hell out of an opposing player on the ice, but when you refer to his girlfriend as your "sloppy seconds" -- that's where the NHL draws the line.



The NHL suspended hockey's most hated player, Sean Avery, for talking trash to the new player dating his ex girlfriend Elisha Cuthbert.

Here's the deal -- Cuthbert's new boyfriend, Dion Phaneuf, plays for the Calgary Flames -- and during a practice session in Calgary today, Avery got the media's attention and said the following:

"I just want to comment on how it's 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. Enjoy the game tonight."

Avery is out pending a hearing with NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman.

Someone made the valid point that the NHL is on TMZ. It may be a first. It's certainly rare. The dirty little not so secret in all of pro sports and entertainment is that the same group of girls get passed around like joints. Michael Strahan is with Eddie Murphy's ex and so on. A few years ago in Cleveland, Josh Beckett's ex sang the national anthem before a playoff game in which he was pitching. If you are not allowed to talk about your relationships or your former relationships, that's pretty sad. Avery is controversial so he is eating this up. The truth is, if he had NOT been suspended and called to the commissioner's office, no one and I mean no one would have known about this. Two professional athletes have banged the same actress. Where's the story? This went from a one day, at best, non story to a major embarrassment for Cuthbert.

Hockey is still on? Nobody cares about hockey anymore - The NHL is about as relevant as watching paint dry.

I know someone who must like Avery's sloppy, his name is Dion Phaneuf #3 on the Calgary Flames. I wonder if Dion like the crunchy sloppy or the fresh just put in the hole sloppy?

Does the punishment fit the crime? Not really but just add this to the list of stupid, unproffesional, (I could go on) things that Avery has done. The NHL was just waiting for his next slip up. Sure, I understand, that's Avery's game: he likes to get under peoples skin. But stuff like that needs to stay on the ice. What he did was so premeditated by calling over the cameras - it was just ridiculous. His own players don't even want him around anymore. I bet he's played his last game with Dallas, heck maybe even in the NHL. Teams don't want a liability running around.

Oh for Pete's sake people...lighten up!!!! it's Avery's job to get under the skin of other players! What he said was HILARIOUS!! and if his ex- wasn't such a HOCKEY WHORE, it wouldn't matter! let him play, and let it be resolved the next time he meets the Flames on the ice. I guarantee that game will be sold out, and make a ton of money for all involved.

This is a great opportunity for TMZ to do a "who would you rather?" Sean Avery or Dion Phaneuf!
