Now, as much as I hate Sean Avery and love Martin Brodeur (even as a Pens fan!), I've to put on my Stephen Colbert hat and "wag the finger" at Marty for skipping past the Ranger agitator in the handshake line.
Hell, even the 1996 Detroit Red Wings shook Claude Lemieux's hand, after he almost seriously injured Kris Draper, which elicited the following classic reaction from Dino Ciccarelli, "“I can’t believe I shook this guy’s frickin’ hand.”
Yes, we all know what a pest Avery is and how he targeted Brodeur throughout the entire series, but purposely not shaking his hand at the end of the series is proof that Avery got inside his head.
