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.

Avery's utterly classless disregard for the spirit of Sport was a disgusting display. Why did the coach not bench him then and there? The NHL should have banned him from the playoffs.

The Rangers CAN'T win the Cup; does anyone want Avery's name to join the likes of Richard, Howe, Beliveau, Gretzky, Messier, Macdonald, Dryden, Trottier,et al on the Stanley Cup?

what a poor excuse of a so called hockey fan you are and claim to be.

avery a first line player ? thats a classic lol. i would be willing to bet his team mates cant stand him and hope he leaves as a free agent in the summer.

maybe he will sign with your make me laffs, that should put them in the playoffs next year, playing on the first line with mats sundin lmfao.

WoW!!!!

Mike, were you dropped on your head as a baby or did you eat paint chips? You're a complete moron and i think everyone that reads your comments are now dumber.

Have you seen Idiocracy? You'd fit right in.

You obviously don't know anything that's going on in the NHL so please don't comment anymore.

With that being said.

As for Avery's condition, i can't say that i'm sorry to hear that won't be playing anymore this season. I'm sure Brodeur won't forget his anctics nor will the rest of the NHL for a long time.

He's not a very classy guy but he is still a decent hockey player. His acts should not go undisciplined.

Cheers,

To quote the great Don Cherry when he was speaking about Sean Avery.......

"Once a jerk, always a jerk!"

I must say that NHL player should shake hands after a game win or loss.Not to call other players names.They are surpose to be role models for younger player in hockey.

Avery is an idiot pure and simple!! I am normally a gentle soul and follow hockey moreso during the payoffs. But just watching this excuse for a hockey player, and his behavior of a 5 year old in the park that can't have his toy back gets my blood pressure up. And reading in this mornings paper that he is in hospital, good place for the jerk!!

Sorry, I am a gentle soul, but that mans antics brings out the worst in people!! like me~!!

Avery = Bad Karma

are you for real ? now you are comparing avery to crosby because you say avery is a first line player ? lmfao

you have to be a laffs fan with that mentality. go figure a jealous laffs fan knocking one of the best players in the league and a team that is a true cup contender.

way to show your knowledge of hockey. i guess i should cut you alot of slack since you follow the laffs and wouldnt know 1 of the best players and teams in the league if they played all there games at the acc you goof.

But most likely ,he was faking because the very next shift he was on the ice. Maybe fancy boy Pete likes his teams to be as huggy and kissy as the penguins but what can you expect from a team led by a guy with a permanent cry on his face. Isn't Avery on one of the top lines pete. Why would you send a goon after him . I'll wait for your 4th grade response.

You are an idiot. Gary Roberts to fight for Crosby but not Big Georges Laraque? So Big Georges is on the team for second line scoring eh? damn that was a stupid comment, nothing new coming from you though you head case.

What a dumb comment from a dumb laffs fan. Oh yea its not like sundin never needed midget domi or belak to protect him eh clown.

Todays gloves are smaller than they have ever been so that means less protection. Avery the clown could have hit Crosby where there was no or little protection.
