Tippett had defended his abrasive forward since the Stars signed him to a US.5-million, four-year contract in July, but he dropped his shield Tuesday.
"He won’t continue with us on the trip," Tippett said."We’ve always professed that there is nobody that’s ever bigger than our group or bigger than the team." The ban may have saved Avery from on-ice retribution from Phaneuf, who is one of the fiercest hitters in the NHL, but Phaneuf would not comment on what he would have done had Avery played.The suspension is indefinite pending a hearing with commissioner Gary Bettman."Sean said some thing that just doesn’t paint our organization in a good light and appropriate steps are being taken." Avery has never shunned the spotlight.A clothes horse, he spent time as an intern with Vogue magazine this summer.The fact the league moved so quickly indicated the NHL may have wanted to head possible trouble in Tuesday’s game off at the pass.Flames winger Craig Conroy said Avery, his former Los Angeles Kings teammate, demonstrated the wrong sense of humour.Avery also dated model and actress Rachel Hunter, the girlfriend of Los Angeles Kings centre Jarrett Stoll."My thoughts were that it was a very disrespectful comment and the league took action and I definitely agree with the way they took action today," Phaneuf said following a 3-1 loss to the Stars.He’s also previously been fined for diving and criticizing NHL disciplinarian Colin Campbell.Just a few months removed from an appearance in the Western Conference final, the Stars are among the worst teams in the league.
