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.

It is about time that arrogant, overpaid, children get taken to task for what they say or do. What he said was offensive and should have been kept for the locker room in his own tiny mind. Kids look up to these players, comments like his are uncalled for....

The press are the idiots in this for even reporting this so called story. It has nothing to do with the game, so who gives a rats ass what he said. If your kids look to Pro Players as role models you should take a long look in the mirror and see where YOU went wrong.

If the league doesn't put their foot down, they will get walked over. We shouldn't cater to unprofessional professionals getting paid vasts amounts of money and NOT producing on the ice. Kids watch this sport and the worst thing I can think of is them watching the shinnanigans and thinking that is acceptable. it is NOT. Anyone remember Kordic? Tie Domi? No Losers in the NHL please.

Who under 30 watched tennis until John MacEnroe came along. The NHL needs more guys who can grab headlines and get the attention of the media... not fewer! Anyone who has studied Marketing 101 knows that any publicity, positive or negative, is good publicity. Coke and McDonalds know it, and the NHL should wise up.

They don't call them hockey pucks for nothing.they know they get passed around.Isn't it alot like getting drafted?

Personally I can't stand Bettman. However, his decision on this matter is correct. So is the decision of the Dallas Stars management and players. Why is this the right decision? If for nothing else, read Hockey Loving Mother's post below.

Bring him to Ottawa. It'll give this town some pep for once.

We need colorful,controversial guys like Avery around to keep the media happy.If every player was low key with no issues the poor media types would be out of a job.Hey almost every workplace has a character or two like this that we all love to hate.These loud mouth idiots have been muzzled to some extent in the workplace as is being done with Avery in the NHL.The more these guys open their mouths the more they show their true character.I'm surprised Brett Hull and Dallas didn't know what they were getting.This might be the wake up call Avery needs to change his ways.

What a total over reaction on Averys comments, they were ignorant for sure and he deserves what's coming to him, but for everyone to jump on the rightious bandwagon,if you make a lot of money it attracts beautiful women, that's just a fact, looks or personality have little to do with it and Avery is a perfect example.....

If you want to ban Avery maybe we should banish players like Tod Bertuzzi as well you no the no nods that shouldnt be in the game in the first place. The NHL needs to clean up their own house. I watched Avery in junior he has talent but he is got some growing up to do and needs to get his emotions in order
