Would Avery be a good fit for the Rangers?
Sat, February 7, 2009

BRUCE GARRIOCH, SUN MEDIA

Sean Avery's road back to the NHL has officially started.

The suspended Dallas Stars winger was placed on waivers today, which means he's ready to play after undergoing counselling, following comments he made earlier this season in Calgary.

If nobody claims him he will clear Monday at noon. The belief is the New York Rangers have discussed the possiblity of bringing in Avery at half-price. He still has three-years, $12 million remaining on his contract.

Would Avery be a good fit with the Rangers? Have your say in our forum.

Still think so gordholio? Even after the clip on the back of Thomas' mask? The guy is a moron. And I think his new team-mates agree. You noticed there was no stick-slapping after the ensuing scrum when the chicken-s*^t refused to drop his gloves and stick. One day, someone is going to get separated with him from the main batch on the ice and is going to beat the living crap out of him,. And I doubt very much anyone will be rushing to his aid.

The whole Avery "sloppy..." comment was exagerrated by the media.

What if the media hadn't even reported this comment like Avery wanted them to do.

Very little would have happened and he would have been disappointed that he didn't get the attention he sorely wanted.

He's a decent player; he's doing well with the Rangers so far.

WHO CARES!

Let this guy fade away to the ditch he should be digging!

The reason this guy is so off the wall isn't because of anger issues, it is because of a lack of gray matter between the ears!

He will do anything and everything for attention! And this is exactly what we will see again!

It really makes me question the management of the League when ANYONE would consider this type of player!

I guess we know that running an NHL team isn't necessarily for the well versed and educated!

As stupid as Avery is, he is still an effective hockey player. As long as he has a gag order with the media he will help the Rangers win hockey games.

I agree with S.T...."sloppy seconds" is hardly offensive, classless maybe.

I've got to eat my written words Avery in the big apple;I really thought he would land in circus town ¨TORONTO¨ with loudmouth Burke......I was wrong.

In these days of the "exemplary" conduct shown by other professional athletes, was what Avery said so bad?

He is an instigator, kind of like the no-see-ums that land on you when you are trying to relax in your backyard on a hot summer's day. Annoying as hell but harmless and they don't give up.

Just call him "Midge"

Someone will take the chance.

Senators should sign him, we need antoher motormouth, crybaby on the team with the rest of 'em

Free speech is one thing but insulting and degrading on national television is another. As a Ranger fan I would never cheer for them again!!1

The best fit for Sean Avery is an asylum,he's the epitome of the term "White Trash". The Rangers are further dragging down a sagging NHL image with this loser!

I'll bet that Elisha Cuthbert discarded Sean Avery, not the other way around.

Why would she even go out with these neanderthals when she has so many guys after her?
