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 needs to be "Todd Bertuzzied" so to speak.

Avery got a Gordie Howe hattrick saturday. Love to have him

I agree that Tucker calling Avery classless is a bit of the pot calling the kettle black...but Avery is in a league of his own when it comes to being a meathead. I look forward to the day someone shoves their stick up his butt and snaps it off...he deserves nothing less.

If it wasn't for Avery Saturday nights game would have been pretty boring. I agree that IF he made comments about Blakes cancer he crossed the line, but lets face it games are more exciting b/c of players like Avery, Tucker, Chris Neil, and Gary Roberts. I love it when they get under the skin of other players and disrupt a teams flow, or fire the bench up by fighting. Plus I'm sure it helps them appeal to the US markets. I hate playing against Avery but I love watching him get under Tuckers skin!!

Wow. Lots of trash here too! Notice the lack of respect going on in the NHL lately, anyone? The league protects the worst players in the league, the agitators, with the instigator rule. Let the players sort it out. they have policing the league themselves forever, and it has worked. Now we have all these problems with sticks and taunts. If these guys were beaking in old days, they'd get dealt with. Lets go back to the old style NHL when you could hit a guy. Now every time a guys gets hit he's looking for a penalty. They fall over like tykes out there, and make the refs look like the idiots. No more. Bring back the real hockey Mr.Bettman and these problems will go away!

I think some people need to get their stories straight. It is just hearsay that Avery commented on the cancer thing. As the story goes..."unconfirmed talk that Avery made a derogatory reference to Blake's chronic myelogenous leukemia..." UNCONFIRMED. RICK, these comments are on topic - this stuff may not belong in hockey, but it is there. We are all just a little confused why Tucker is the one crying so much. Of all people... The Leafs should have had Belak dressed - it may have stopped Avery from beating the Leafs all on his own...

SS, if you actually look at the video BLAKE didn't do anything, it was Tucker taking the swipe in retaliation to Avery's antics. Get your facts straight and save the verbal diarrhea for the chat rooms......Colin Campbell has only called for Avery. Scotty Bowman, Matthew Barnaby have publicy stated this guy is more trouble than good.

I bleed Blue, but I cannot stand Tucker's constant whining and faking injuries etc. But, the fact that Avery said what he said to Blake needs to be looked into. Avery has a history of bad mouthing, and the NHL certainly doesn't need any of their players taking personal stabs at other players. Grow up guys..stop acting like "boys"!!

He has a big mouth and will eventually have it shut for him. But he's not the first person to run off at the mouth.

Atleast it gives everyone something to talk and complain about.

Sean Avery is the biggest idiot in the history of the NHL. Eventually his mouth will get him seriously hurt and absolutely no one will feel sorry for him. If it was up to me I'd ban him for life.
