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 wouldnt even trust Avery to pump my gas, knowing what a meathead he is he would probably put some sugar in your tank and think its funny.

nighttrain, do you honestly think that Brodeur could care less what Avery thinks or what the Rangers do? Brodeur has quite literally been there, done that and won it on numerous occasions. He is a 3 time Vezina winner, 3 time Stanley Cup winner and will likely break most of Roys remaining records next year en route to a certain Hall-Of-Fame induction. Sean Avery's accolades: Dated Elisha Cuthbert, was on Punk'd, insulted a cancer patient, made on-ice racial slurs and pulled a pond hockey trick on Martin Brodeur. The only thing hilarious about Avery is his uncanny ability to stay in the NHL despite being a walking sideshow. The only time Avery will speak to Brodeur again is when he pumps Brodeur's gas a few years down the road.

No Pat, i will not shut up, and you think Jimmy is back eh? The last comment he did on this string was from January 26 2008, almost 2 months ago.

If Avery concentrated on playing the game he could get 25 - 30 goals. Instead he wants to be the show with his circus act.

This is Avery for the rest of his career, I am guessing he is around late 20's or 30ish. Its not like he is in his early 20's and could still mature into a pretty good hockey player.

I guess as long at the team has success they will put up with his antics, but once the losing starts like it did with the Kings he will be sent packing.

Jimmy the American Idiot, your back. Don't even go there with regards to law. Don't know what you could have forgotten as you've proven on numerous occassions, (VICK & RAMAGE strings) that you know puck all about law, Canadian or American. RJ, shut up.

Avery is head case. He can be a useful player if he ever stopped being a clown and focussed on playing hockey.

Someone said he will sign with the Laffs in the summer. Yea right, they already a Avery but his name is side show Tucker lol.

What Avery did to Brodeur wasnt in good sportsmanship. He looked like a tool, even 1 of his teammates pushed him away from Brodeur.

Avery isnt playing with a full deck. Now we see why the KINGS sent him home. What a wack job.

I hope the Rangers lose next round just because of him. Cant see a goof like that skating around with the cup in his arms in June. I would expect to see something like that in the ECHL not the NHL. Avery is a circus act.

nighttrain,

You are theone that is "frikin hilarious". Yes his job was to distrack Marty, but what he did was the most unsportsmen like thing ive ever seen. I would to see anyone keep there cool during that.

Norbit,

I agree with you that Avery and Lemieux are cut from the same cloth. Two of the biggest morons to ever play in the NHL.

I think he is frikin hilarious. His job was to distract fatso and that is what he did & quite well at that. If he was the goalie everyone claims he is he would have kept his cool and ignored him. Avery is "unclassy" translates to "BooHoo, BooHoo we lost in the first round with one of the greatest goalies of all time. BooHoo, BooHoo"
