Martin Brodeur vs. Sean Avery

After taunting Brodeur during the regular season, Avery upped the ante in this feud during the '08 playoffs. During a first-round game, Avery waved his hands and stick in front of Brodeur in an attempt to distract him and block his view. Not illegal at the time, that changed with the advent of the "Sean Avery Rule." After the Rangers eliminated the Devils from the playoffs, Brodeur snubbed Avery in the handshake line, causing Avery to remark, "Fatso forgot to shake my hand." Since then, Brodeur has referred to Avery as "the Vogue intern."
