11:25 AM ET 03.31 | Sean Avery has potentially reignited an endless feud with New York Rangers bench boss John Tortorella. The former NHL bad boy made it clear prior to the Rangers 3-0 loss to the Montreal Canadiens Saturday night what he thinks of his former head coach, submitting a tweet that can only be read one way. "Fire this CLOWN, his players hate him and wont play for his BS.... @imseanavery is #winning," Avery, 32, wrote, undoubtedly referring to Tortorella, who he has a bit of history with. Known for his fiery post-game press conferences and haste with media, Tortorella started what would become a war of words when he weighed in following Avery's not-so-flattering comments about a certain Maple Leaf captain's girlfriend in 2008.

How about a big HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Mr. Hockey?

He's 85 years old today. Hard to believe really.

Torts and Avery must go, and just for fun, send them both to Florida!

"Sean Avery calls for John Tortorella's head"

Does anyone (other than Hank) care about what Sean Avery thinks, says or does?

No. And all Tortafella has to say to Avery, after he shows him three fingers, is "****, Averhole!"

Hmmm. "Up" and "yours" are censored by T&R? Weird!
