Brad Gets Booed

Apparently, Colorado Avalanche fans have still to forgive Brad May for his role in the Steve Moore incident. While playing in an intrasquad game, May was booed every time he touched the puck, and was eventually yanked from the bench in the second period. The official word from the Avalanche is that May has some sort of a groin injury - you can bet Pierre "I am not a doctor" Lacroix didn't make that diagnosis - and didn't suit up in the Avs preseason game against Dallas.

May is one of the classiest and most affable players in the league, devoting countless hours to community and charity work and always approachable to the fans and the media. You can ask any former teammate of his and they will tell you he is also one of the best teammates they ever had. Bearing in mind that May's involvement in the Moore incident consisted of one ill-timed comment, I think it's unfortunate that Avs fans can't move past it and see May for everything else he is.
