Sean Avery calls for John Tortorella’s head

The New York Rangers’ headaches continued on Saturday with a 3-0 loss to the Montreal Canadiens, prompting one of the team’s former headache-makers to come out of the woodwork.

Retired winger Sean Avery wasn’t shy about laying the blame at John Tortorella’s feet, calling for his last NHL coach’s head on Twitter:

Now that’s some quality chirping. Let’s look at the checklist:

  • He spoke about himself in the third person (or at least the third Twitter handle).
  • Solid use of all caps.
  • He demanded that Tortorella gets fired.
  • Apparently Torts doesn’t like the word clown.
  • Avery even threw in Charlie Sheen’s #winning at the end.

Admit it, you kind of miss Avery’s antics, don’t you?
