Avery Seriously Ill. Euthanasia Debate Ends

With a single body check, Sean Avery found a way to stay in the press well after the Rangers are eliminated from the Stanley Cup playoffs. The crafty devil. That bastion of journalistic integrity, The New York Daily News, had Avery in cardiac arrest at 3 am after the game, with "someone" finding him at the last minute, saving his Canadian bacon. Untrue. Avery's injury happened sometime during the game, and he was fairly ineffective thereafter because of the serious pain he was in. Immediately following the game, he went to a New York hospital under his own steam.

The medical community is under fire this morning as the public asks, "What is a doctors place?" and "Should a doctor always save a life? Euthanasia advocates were the go-to guests on all the news networks as hoards of pro assisted-suicide protesters clashed with police outside of Avery's hospital.

"Let Sean do the right thing!" The crowds chanted. Adding, "Let him go the way he played hockey: with dignity!"

That sentiment is not only being heard in New York, Pittsburgh, and Martin Brodeur's house, its also gone international. A CNN/Time Magazine poll released this morning shows where support for euthanasia is highest. With this, world leaders, hospital administrators and Gary Bettman, today will not be able to look away at the plight of #16.

LOL. Avery has played his last game in a Rangers uniform. Let's hope he gets healthy for he is soon to be a Toronto Maple Leaf

Navin, didn't Avery once say that as a kid, he always dreamed of being a Leaf? :P
