I don't think anyone would ever accuse Devils' enforcer Cam Janssen of being a Rhodes Scholar. But if there was ever any doubt that his IQ was even smaller than his yearly point totals, surely that has discarded now. Janssen went on Arch City Radio in St. Louis and showed off his intellect (or lack thereof). Arch City Radio already pulled the video from Youtube, presumable because of the backlash, but you can watch the video here. Some of the highlights from the video (some offensive language is going to follow):

- Janssen accepts congratulations for making it to the Stanley Cup Finals despite literally not playing a single shift the entire postseason. Someone tell John Scott that Boomer Esiason has a commemorative plaque waiting at WFAN for him to pick up.  

- Janssen helps to equate losing to the LA Kings to "******* a fat broad."

- Janssen shows pride and eagerness in hitting players with their heads down and injuring them.

But the big thing that is now receiving attention around the sports world is Janssen stating that any player who was "sucking **** four weeks ago" is "getting his ass kicked." Now granted, the host did lead him in that direction with his question and Janssen was on a shock radio show, but it's a stupid comment to make; especially when he knows that a broad, public  audience is going to hear it. 

When Sean Avery made his infamous "sloppy seconds" comments years ago, he was only really commenting on Dion Phaneuf and Elisha Cuthbert. That resulted in Gary Bettman imposing a suspension and forcing him into anger management. And of course, Devils fans had a field day with it. So here's my challenge to Bettman and Devils fans; show you aren't biased hypocrits. Bettman, show that you weren't just punishing Sean Avery for being Sean Avery. And Devils fans especially, give Cam Janssen every ounce of hate that you would have 100% given Sean Avery if he said anything even remotely similar or offensive. Because if the entire hockey world is going to persucte Sean Avery for stupid comments in a media interview then I don't see why Cam Janssen should be treated any differently. Otherwise, be ready to admit that you bandwagoned the villifying and lambasting of Sean Avery out of blind ignorance.
