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.

I don't think Avery is that tough a guy,If cry baby Crosby needs someone to fight his battles , maybe Gary Roberts not Laroque. Did you see Crosby's face when Avery gave him a slash, I thought he got shot for "pete" sake. Can you say hot dog Pete.

If I was Avery's teammate I would have drilled the puck into his back and told him to stop being such an idiot and play hockey. As far as I am concerned there is no place for his antics in the NHL. The only place for a clown like him is in the circus.

He needs to decide if he wants to be a clown or a hockey player. I doubt if he even knows the difference anymore.

Are you serious ? Ovenchkin takes care of Avery him self ? lol Thats freaking hilarious, guess they have Brashear to do the scoring then right clown.

Get a clue before you type again numb nut.

Mike, I think you want to address your response to pete with a little p. I didn't comment on which team you follow or don't.
Pete, 2008-04-26 08:33:40

I was merely responding to the post that mentioned Laraque beating the tar out of Avery if he messed with Crosby . Gretzky and lemieux might have not been fighters but Iginla-Lecavalier-and even Ovechkin don't seem to have a problem handling pests like Avery.If you watch Crosby , he never stops whining and almost looks on the verge of tears when he's complaining.A hot dog more suited for basketball culture than hockey.And Pete ,I can't stand Ottawa.

Although I have to grit my teeth sometimes at what Avery does. I like him...like comic relief. He's a pretty good hockey player as well. I'd have him on my team any day. The Penguins are going to have to deal with him without taking penalties. Good luck...and keep it up Sean.

mike,

Crosby isnt paid to fight, his job is to score goals and set up his teammates.

Why would anyone want him to fight and risk an injury ( broken hand ) so he misses 4 - 6 weeks ?

That is why the Pens have Laraque, Washington has Brashear etc etc to protect their best players from dirty players that would love nothing more than to run a star and knock him out of the game and series.

Crosby is a cry baby ? Why because his team is better than yours and just knocked your team the sens out ? lol

so i guess you are suggesting that gretzky and mario lemieux fought their own battles to huh ?


pete, 2008-04-24 21:50:49

Why can't cry baby Crosby fight his own battles.
Mike, 2008-04-24 14:59:23

I hope Avery tries just once to mess with Crosby then Big Georges Laraque will beat the tar out of him and hopefully he will be out for the rest of the series.

Avery is the type of guy that even his own teammates probably cant stand.

Penguins in 6
